The SafEye duct-mounted open path gas detector has recently been employed to provide gas detection at a global pharmaceutical plant.

The detector was required within the plant to detect a variety of gases, including acetone, ethanol, ethyl acetate, methanol, toluene and isopropyl alcohol. This prevents gases from building up either within a closed area or within a pipe and producing potentially explosive gas clouds.

The SafEye duct-mounted gas detector uses its source and detector to detect gases at the 3.4µm wavelength with the ability to determine the concentration of the gases, before they reach explosive levels. Relevant precautions can then be taken to ensure that an explosion doesn’t occur.

Spectrex is a technology leader in optical flame and open path gas detection (OPGD). Our patented optical UV/IR and IR3 flame detector designs, as well as pioneering patented Xenon Flash designs in OPGD detectors, are now the standard for oil and gas projects.

A wide range of flame detectors are available, from ultra-fast (msec) detection time to high-sensitivity hydrocarbon and hydrogen flame detection, alongside the equally large OPGD range that can detect hazardous gases, from flammable hydrocarbons to toxic ammonia and hydrogen sulfide.

All Spectrex products can operate in the toughest conditions, from African deserts to Alaskan waters and are fully approved to meet relevant third-party Ex hazardous area, performance and reliability standards to the wide range of application challenges, worldwide.
