Oil and gas industry

Because of the presence of toxic and explosive gas, oil and gas production, exploitations and treatment sites can be highly dangerous environments for workers. Gas detection solutions must be implemented against these hazards to ensure safety.

gas detectors and personal protective equipment for the oild and gas industry

GazDetect – with its partners 3M Gas & Flame Detection, Dräger, Honeywell Analytics and Industrial Scientific – offers a complete range of gas detectors (4 gas detectors, area gas monitor, fixed system), optical flame detectors and respiratory protection devices (gas masks, escape respirators, self-rescuer masks and self-contained breathing apparatus…)

Portable gas detection for the oil and gas industry

4 gas monitor

This is the prime multi-gas detector and the most commonly used for oil & gas applications like exploration, drilling, refining, storage or transport. It simultaneously detects combustible gases (methane, VNG, LPG, hydrocarbons, solvents…), hydrogen sulfide (H2S) – a very toxic gas – carbon monoxide (CO) and oxygen (O2) deficiency.

Area gas monitor

In addition to portable gas detectors or for particular situations (offshore platforms, periodical technical shutdown works in refineries), using area gas monitors to cover a production or work zone allows complete monitoring and higher safety levels for workers and infrastructures. Actually, the oil and gas industry is a major user of area gas monitors: these devices are used on production sites all over the world.

Fixed detection for the oil and gas industry

Combustible gas detector

Combustible gas detectors (for natural gas, hydrocarbons, solvents and alcohols) are the main gas detection systems used in the oil and gas industry. There are two major detection technologies depending on targeted gases:

  • Catalytic sensor: This sensor technology is used for almost any combustible gas. It is very efficient but its lifetime shortens as residual combustible gas is more or less present.
  • Infrared absorption sensor: This technology should be selected for any field of activity with permanent residual presence of combustible gases. This is the technology to use for the oil and gas sector.

Open-path gas detector

Using an open-path gas detector is particularly suitable for some applications like offshore platforms, pipelines or large scale storage areas. An infrared open-path detector detects gases and hydrocarbons and features a scope of up to 200 meters. This is an attractive solution as it is easy to implement and cost effective.

Optical flame detector

An optical flame detector reacts to any flame radiation. It has been designed to quickly alert of any fire ignition. These devices are thus particularly adapted to refineries, pipelines, pumping stations, and are great solutions for filling centers, storage structures or offshore platforms.

Respiratory protection for the oil and gas industry

Escape mask and self-rescuer respirator

For emergency evacuation in presence of different toxic gases, people need to wear escape masks. These respiratory protective units are gathered into two categories: air purifying respirators that use ABEK specific filters, and air supplying respirators (self-rescuer masks) well-suited for emergency escape in highly toxic or poorly oxygenated atmosphere.

Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA)

Using a self-contained breathing apparatus – SCBA – is required for heavier interventions in non-breathable, poorly oxygenated, toxic or asphyxiating (important gas leak) areas.

Area gas monitor – RADIUS BZ1

The Radius BZ1 is a high performance area gas monitor. As it is made with rough materials, it suits in the most demanding ATEX standards and the harshest environments.

Industrial scientific area gas monitor Radius BZ1 for workers safety
  • Detection of combustible gases, Cl2, CO, H2, H2S, HCN, NH3, NO2, O2, SO2 and VOC.
  • Duplicate 108 dB audible alarm and red & blue LED visual alarm
  • Runtime: 168 hours without pump (7 days) and 84 hours with pump
  • Dimensions: 29 x 29 x 55 cm – weight 7.5 kg – 11.2 cm LCD display
  • Available with optional LENS wireless technology
Additional information

Designed in an impact and weather-resistant polycarbonate alloys housing, the Radius BZ1 area gas monitor is an extremely flexible solution to monitor a clearly defined area or a confined space. Moreover, the Radius BZ1 area gas monitor is equipped with the DualSense technology and is available with optional LENS Wireless technology.

 

DualSense technology uses two sensors of the same type to determine the concentration of a target gas in the atmosphere and reduce the risk of instrument failure while improving gas reading accuracy.

 

LENS is the first wireless gas detection solution that allows personal monitors and area monitors to communicate gas readings and alarms with one another. Thanks to the 360-degree gas path and all-weather sensor use, the Radius BZ1 area monitor can accurately detect gases regardless of environmental conditions and avoid false alarms.

 

The special nature of this gas detection area monitoring device lies in its SafeCore® module. This unit concentrates every critical technology pieces such as software, pumps and sensors. this module can be easily removed to be placed in any base in order to have a smaller fleet of instruments, easily dock it on a socking station – to download data logs and alarm events, bump test, calibrate and change settings – or to adapt each configuration to changin environment.

 

In case of anormal concentrations, powerful audible (108 dB at 1 m) and visual (ultra-bright blue and red lights) alarms will alert any operator working in the area, even in high-noise and dark environments. Custom alarm action messages like “EVACUATE” or “VENTILATE” can furthermore be configured in case of emergency situations in order to quickly and safely take corrective actions.

 

Lastly, the Radius BZ1 area gas monitor is equipped with a long-duration battery with 7 days (1168 hours) or typical runtime. An optional external extended battery can extend it over one month.

Easy to mount and to remove, this pump requires no tools and is it very easy to switch from diffusion mode to pump mode.

 

Compact and discrete, this portable 7 gas monitor features 3 navigation keys and a colored display for easy and swift measurement values readout. Very convenient, this detector has been engineered for one-handed operation. As it is also robust and rugged, this multi gas detector is extremely efficient in hostile environments and in the harshest conditions.

 

This device also features three bright LED indicators based on a color code compliant with the NF EN 60079-29-1, NF EN 45544-1 and NF EN 50104 standards. This way, the red light indicates an alarm due to hazardous concentrations gas; the yellow light an alarm is related to a device failure –like a low battery status for example - and the green light indicates the proper operation of the device and that it is ready for use. In case of an alert event, audible (110 dB at 30 cm) and vibrating alarms are activated in addition to the visual alarm.

 

The 7 gas monitor X-am 8000 also integrates an impact detection system. This way, any mechanical impact that can damage the device is stored in the device’s memory. This data is stored in the device internal memory that can also store data on hundreds of exposure hours.

 

Lastly, the X-am 8000 portable mutli gas detector is powered by a lithium-ion battery that can be charged through an induction charger. Thanks to this innovative non-intrusive charging system, common issues from standard charging systems are removed – such as pin corrosion and contact problems.
