Flame Detection Consideration Services – MSA Safety

  • MSA’s fire and gas mapping is a solution that assists in the evaluation of flame and gas risks within a processing facility and reducing these risks towards an acceptable risk profile.
  • Fire and gas mapping considers the application, sensor technologies, detector placement, zoning, probability of alarming with voting and non-voting systems, and the best measurement range to achieve the highest possible detection coverage – ultimately determining the optimal number of detectors.
  • Fire and gas mapping includes placing of detectors in appropriate locations to achieve the best possible detection coverage.
  • Fixed flame and gas detector systems are designed and installed to protect large and complex areas filled with process equipment from risks of combustible or toxic gas leaks, explosions and flames.
  • For these systems to be effective, it is important that they offer a high likelihood of detecting the presence of flame and gas hazards within monitored process areas.
  • Determining the optimal quantity and location of flame and gas detectors is therefore critical to ensure the detection system’s effectiveness.

 

Key benefits

  • It’s important to remember that there is no such thing as a “perfect flame detector” and the most suitable flame detector has to be selected for the specific application, based on the below design criteria:
    • The type of fuel (hydrocarbon or non-hydrocarbon) to be detected will determine the sensor technologies that can be used
    • Possible sources of nuisance radiation which may be detected and may result in the flame detector giving a false alarm
    • Size of the risk area
    • Where the flame detectors can be positioned, as this will determine the detection range
    • What size of fire needs to be detected within the required response time
    • What percentage of the risk area needs covering for the specified size of fire
    • Does the total risk area need monitoring by a single detector or two detectors for a 2ooN voting system
