Early detection of gas leaks and flames can help prevent the escalation of dangerous incidents; therefore, safety engineers must design and implement the most effective detection system possible. Engineers pour over flame and gas detector spec sheets, and they consider safety manufacturer certifications. But high-quality detectors that are improperly placed might not meet detection goals.
Safety experts have long known that wise placement of the devices into a specific application leads to effective detection coverage, which in turn leads to the best scenario for successful mitigation. Yet UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) statistics indicated that 40% of major gas releases in the North Sea offshore installations were not detected by gas detection methods.
