Teledyne Gas & Flame Detection will showcase highly capable solutions such as its GD1 open-path laser gas detector and its GD10P infrared gas detector, which features upgraded software during ADIPEC 2021
The Teledyne GD1 open-path laser gas detector features a unique, customisable laser diode that, rather than emitting a conventional straight beam of light, travels as a cone from one point to another. In other words, the beam expands after transmission and is almost a metre in diameter when it reaches the receiver.
The GD1 also performs real-time auto-calibration and auto-proof testing, and provides a very high sampling or detection rate i.e. 8000 times/sec.
Another product taking pride of place at the company’s booth will be the Teledyne GD10P infrared gas detector. Thanks to a new software revision and upgrade, the GD10P is the only device on the market that provides IR detection to first-class SIL 2 high demand mode and SIL 3-capable IEC 61508 ed. two with a proof test interval of 8760 hours.
Teledyne’s product portfolio houses a variety of detection technologies, including fixed, portable and wireless, as well as area monitors. Sometimes a mix of solutions can improve reliability and availability, as evidenced in the company’s proposal for the enormous Hail and Ghasha sour gas development, which is set to go live in 2024.
The main contractor tasked Teledyne Gas & Flame Detection to ensure reliable wireless gas detection with 24-7 availability. As a result, the company proposed fixed gas detectors connected via a wireless mesh as a primary means of detecting LEL explosive gases and hydrogen sulphide gases. The solution also includes a second line of defence, utilising a mesh network of Teledyne's field-proven BM25 wireless area monitors. Implementation commenced in June 2021, with the wireless mesh network featuring independent supervision from field-mounted controllers and remote displays.
