Detecting flammable and toxic gas leakages and fires early enough has been a challenge for process plants. It is common knowledge that process plants often fail to detect gas leaks and fires at an early stage, even after employing hundreds of detectors all over the plant. This is often due to inadequate optimisation of the location of these detectors, coupled with a general lack of understanding of the detection techniques.
This course covers the principles of fire and gas detection and various types of detectors, various performance criteria to detect fire, flammable gas as well as toxic gas, and how to develop an optimised detector layout.
