Det-Tronics provides flame detection, gas detection and hazard mitigation systems for manned and unmanned offshore drilling platforms around the world.
The company designs, manufactures and commissions SIL-2 capable fire and gas safety solutions to protect personnel, equipment and processes in settings where the risks and potential costs of fire are high.
Products include flame detectors, combustible gas detectors, toxic gas detectors and explosion-proof smoke detectors, as well as the certified Eagle Quantum Premier® (EQP) Fire and Gas Safety Controller for integrated detection, notification and suppression control.
Flame detectors certified to global and offshore standards for your safety
Det-Tronics products carry performance and safety certifications from globally recognised third-party testing agencies and approval bodies. The X3301 Multispectrum Infrared Flame Detector is performance certified to FM 3260, EN 54 and VNIIPO to respond a wide range of fuel sources. It also carries DNV/MED Type approval for deck installation offshore and is NFPA 72 compliant. The optional Weather Shield minimises accumulation of condensation, rain and snow on the optics of X-series optical flame detector to reduce weather-induced fault conditions.
Combustible and toxic gas detectors with global certifications, safety awards
Combustible gas and toxic gas detectors from Det-Tronics use a variety of technologies to provide reliable fixed detection solutions that keep people and operations safe. Detectors measure gases via acoustic, infrared (point and line-of-sight), catalytic bead and electrochemical technologies.
Calibration and configuration can be done through a variety of displays and gas control panels.
For hydrocarbon gas detection, the PointWatch Eclipse® PIRECL IR detector carries life-safety performance approval to ATEX EN60079-29-1 as well as FM and CSA approvals. The fast-response version has been certified to FM, CSA, IECEx and ATEX requirements for detecting methane or butane in as little as 1.5 seconds. PIRECL Eclipse detectors are constructed of rugged IP66/67 stainless steel construction and certified SIL-2 capable.
The FlexSight™ LS2000 line-of-sight IR gas detector provides continuous monitoring of combustible hydrocarbon gas concentrations between two points with infrared technology while enduring harsh environments. Units are globally certified with SIL, FM, CSA, ATEX, IECEx, CE, DNV and other approvals.
The FlexSonic® Acoustic Gas Leak Detector provides instantaneous response to pressurised gas, detecting leaks without gas contact. Performance is unaffected by wind direction or leak location, and a patented “learn function” customises detection to ignore ultrasonic false alarm sources.
Det-Tronics line-of-sight and acoustic gas detection products are both exida safety award winners.
The GT3000 Electrochemical Toxic Gas Detector is designed with sensors to detect each of these toxic gases: hydrogen sulfide, hydrogen, oxygen, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, ammonia, chlorine or sulfur dioxide. The unit is certified SIL- 2 capable and has been third-party-tested to the IP66 rating.
System controller integrates detection, notification and suppression with ease
The Eagle Quantum Premier® (EQP) Fire and Gas Safety Controller is an addressable-loop, fault-tolerant safety controller. Compliant to NFPA 72 per FM Approvals, the controller supports Det-Tronics flame and gas detectors as well as third-party devices.
The controller is certified for annunciation and releasing, and it has the capability to communicate with process control and communication systems. The EQP is hazardous-location rated by FM, CSA, ATEX and IECEx, is FM performance approved, and CE marked. The result is a fire- and gas-safety controller that can incorporate smoke detection, flame detection, and combustible and toxic gas detection, as well as other detection technologies for high-risk applications into a single safety system.
A global leader in flame and gas detection technology and hazard mitigation systems since 1973, Det-Tronics products and systems currently protect drilling platforms and other special hazard environments from the North Sea to South America to Southeast Asia, often in remote locations and extreme environments.
Det-Tronics offices worldwide provide expert local assistance at every project phase, from oil and gas project definition to commissioning to post-sales support. Customer service is available through a global network of highly trained service personnel. Det-Tronics is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corporation.
