GAS DETECTION SYSTEMS
The monitoring of gases and vapours is necessary in many industrial and commercial buildings in order to satisfy the legal requirements and guidelines for occupational / operational safety and for explosions and emissions protection. Sophisticated gas detection equipment is required for this purpose. Permanently installed, i.e. stationary gas detection systems which optimally cover the area being monitored, are used if there are risks of gas leaks in explosion-hazardous, Ox and Tox-areas. In the case of an alarm, safety measures must be triggered, such as an acoustic or a visual alarm. Ventilation systems must also be switched-on and equipment switched-off whenever necessary.
