Gas leaks in remote locations and distant pipelines, obviously have serious environmental and safety effects. Especially at times when the integrity of the supply has never been so important. However, conventional pipeline monitoring solutions cannot be provided in real-time, continuous monitoring, and non-insertion, it is necessary to avoid expensive leaks of functioning gases and delays for dispersion. Only fixed gas detectors can be used as an effective gas pipeline leak detection system, figure and sense even the smallest loss in seconds, without operational delay or risk. Wireless gas detection system is an extremely versatile solution that can be used to acquire liquid and gaseous losses in various industrial applications, such as:
– Gas and distribution transmission
– Leads GNL
– CNG – Piping
Fixed Gas Detector Installation
The first step towards appropriate positioning of the gas detector is to identify areas in which natural gas is high in frequency. Excessive concentration of natural gas can be extremely dangerous since it’s impossible to feel or detect natural gas without any device. Natural gas has no color, and absolutely no smell. The first point that should be taken into consideration for the installation of gas detection systems is to check out the structures, vents, nearby gas detection equipment, closed areas, or poorly ventilated areas close to the resources. In a pipeline network when the gases can escape from anywhere in the room, it is necessary to monitor the entire room where gas detectors have to be installed. Gas monitoring systems help to mitigate explosions they are equipment that could prevent worker exposure to toxic gases. Therefore fixed gas detector has to be installed with precision and analysis of the area.

Understand the Density
You have to understand how dense is the gas that can be expelled. Gas density is a major concern of highly ignited or combustible gas. Ethane, Propane, and benzene have a higher density. These gases are heavier as compared to oxygen. This means when these gas would be leaking it would be advantageous to keep the gas detector closer to the ground. Natural gas is methane that is lighter in comparison to air and may collect at the ceiling of a building that requires gas detector installation close to the ceiling. Your open window building or exhaust channels? Although good ventilation is required to reduce the gas concentration in your building, the airflow can influence the performance of gas sensors. When installing the gas detector, make sure to place it from the air channels to blow fresh air or open doors and windows. Modern wireless gas detectors work perfectly with absolutely no effect of ventilation on their sensors.
Determine Gas Detection Limits
Fixed gas detectors incorporate a gas sensor that measures gas concentration on a continuous basis. Much like human sense organs, these gas sensors can only detect what’s within its coverage limit. If you can determine where leaks are most likely to occur, your gas detectors should be placed strategically to cover your entire area. While gas detection system installation there are several things to keep in mind one such factor is the density of the gas, expected sources of leaks, i.e. seals, valves, the flow of the air, and expected sources of ignition.
Preventing Natural Gas Leaks Using Fixed Gas Detector
Solid gas detectors are designed with a sensor that measures the gas concentration permanently. Similar to human sense these modern gas sensors have infrared sensing that makes sure nothing escapes from its perimeter. The placement of fixed gas detector has to be strategically planned throughout the area once the degree of loss is measured. All of this cannot be possible without professional help.
FirstSense Safety expert professional team would make sure that no point is left and every specific point is taken under consideration before the fixed gas detector is installed. During gas monitoring, several different topics have to be taken under consideration. Different elements that affect the gas detection system include the gas density, Seals, fixtures, fittings valves, etc., the flow of air, and source of predicted inflammation source.
