Flame Detector Selection

Flame Detector Selection - Ian Davidson - There are two distinct flame detection families:

  • Radiation flame detectors consisting Ultraviolet, Single Frequency Infrared, Combination UV/IR, and Multiple Frequency Infrared.
  • Visual Flame Detectors

Radiation-type flame detectors collect radiation from the area under surveillance, sum the total radiation within the field of view...

Fire Protection

The following technical information is from FireFly and PROdetec:

How to Protect Industrial Processes from Fire and Dust Explosions - Anything that has been transformed into fine particles can explode. Unfortunately, all too often it does. Every year, many serious fires and explosions occur in industrial plants as a result of dust. Yes, dust. Fine inflammable material is explosive! The statistics speak for themselves. Dust explosions lead to considerable material damage and...

Health and Safety

The following are useful articles on health and safety for personal use.

Decommissioning Chemical Plants - A Proven Roadmap - The current economic and socio-political environment has made product lifecycles of chemicals much shorter. Also cost pressures, regulatory pressures, influence of non-state actors and changing market geographies, mean that manufacturing plants (examples are chemical process plants, Oil & Gas facilities, hydrocarbon processing plants and...

Most Projects Fail because Preliminary Engineering was not done!

Here are the first steps to success!

Clearly Defined Requirements.

The Preliminary Engineering Proposal Presented by:

INX.INC

Preliminary engineering consists of three parts:

  1. Define the process by generating an ISA standard P&I diagram of all necessary equipment. This documentation will then be used as the media for defining the control system. It will be used to develop the required scope of work.

  2. Meet with...
