Gas Detection in Energy Industry

Gas detection requirements for power generation can vary widely based on the fuel source, which includes coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear. Regardless of the type of power facility, gas, fire and other hazards pose significant risk to employee safety and also can disrupt the supply of energy to commercial and residential customers.

At Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection, our wide range of gas detection products meets the needs of all forms of power generation. Our century of experience, combined with advanced system design and multiple communication protocols, further positions us as your preferred partner.

Why is Field Data Important?

Data driven management enables business’ to utilize real data from their own organization to shape business and process decisions without estimation and guess work. Field Data can offer valuable insight into:

  • Workers exposure to harmful gases.
  • Process Efficiency.
  • Gas Detector Test and Maintenance routines.
  • Identification of “problem zones”.
  • Identification of ‘unsafe’ employee behaviors (e.g. slow response to alarm) supporting worker safety & training.

Accessing this information in a useful format allows decisions to be made that increases performance and efficiency, improves safety and ensures compliance. Using Field data in this way turns a safety alarm or leak locating device into a valuable data gathering tool, adding value to the business.
