The SafEye 300 Duct Open Path Detectors monitor ingress of hazardous flammable gas concentrations into air intakes of turbine engines and HVAC air ducts. Duct applications require that the small path across an air inlet responds with a very high sensitivity, full scale of 1 LEL.m for 2-6.6ft (0.6-2m) wide inlet and full scale of 2.5 LEL.m for 6.6-23ft (2-7m) wide inlet.
- Alarm up to 0.5 LEL.m
- 5 times more sensitive than the normal Open Path equipment
- Fast response time of typically 2 sec., max. 5 sec.
- 5 to 10 times faster than the commonly used Open Path detector and 20-50 times faster than the Point Detector.
High reliability, simple installation, alignment, and maintenance, equipment not subject to poisoning.
Used in air ducts on FPSO’s and offshore rigs for British Petroleum (BP), Shell, and ABB Lummus for turbines, air intakes, etc.
Specially designed to perform under extreme conditions such as high-speed airflows, high temperatures (up to 185˚F (85˚ C)), humidity, and corrosive gases, where point detectors may not be effective.
Standard Interface Options
Standard 4-20 mA outputs or RS-485 output to allow networking (up to 64 detectors) to a central monitoring/PC system.
This feature also enables easy maintenance and local and remote diagnostic tools.
Offshore Oil & Gas Rigs and FPSOs; Onshore Oil & Gas Terminals; Storage Farms and Filling Stations; Petrochemical and Chemical Industries; Power Utilities and Turbines areas; Automotive, Painting, Printing, Pharmaceutical Industries, and many more.
