Teledyne Gas & Flame Detection will shine the spotlight on its world-leading gas detection systems at ADIPEC 2021 (15-18 November, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates). From Booth 9413 in Hall 9, the company will showcase highly capable solutions such as its GD1 open-path laser gas detector and its GD10P infrared gas detector, which features upgraded software. Visitors to the booth will also discover how Teledyne will meet the gas detection demands of the giant Hail and Ghasha sour gas project that is currently in development off the UAE coastline.
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. As a result, the beam can penetrate harsh environments that competitor solutions may find difficult. 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. 2 with a proof test interval of 8760 hours. A further notable feature of the GD10P is its solid-state infrared source, which is sufficiently robust and stable to merit a 15-year warranty.
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.
The BM25 will be on display at the booth, alongside other Teledyne industrial gas and flame detectors – both fixed and portable, including the wireless CXT. Personal gas monitors on view will include the PS200, PS500 and Protégé ZM, while an ‘Innovation Wall’ will showcase upcoming new products, such as the DG MOS detector with Telecapteur asset management software.
Whatever the requirement, ADIPEC visitors are welcome to discuss their specific applications and challenges with Teledyne, which will have an experienced and knowledgeable team at the exhibition.
