LNG

Safety Protection is Paramount

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is economical and its global
use is growing, but the process has risks.

Det-Tronics are pioneers in the field of flame detection and protection systems with over 40 years experience as a trusted global solution provider for hazard and critical process areas.

LNG Hazard Detection Challenges:

  • Performance and design requirements vary by facility/zone/area
  • Flammable and non-flammable hazards create need for multiple detection types and technologies
  • Environmental factors such as wind and extreme low temperatures increase complexity of design
  • False alarm sources increase potential for unitended activations

Complete Solutions Must:

  • Provide reliable detection under varying environmental factors
  • Include detector types and technologies to address needs at different parts of the process
  • Provide immunity to false alarm sources and be unaffected by electromagnetic interferences
  • Integrate detection, notification, and suppression functionality
  • Automatically initiate corrective action, including engaging the emergency shutdown system
  • Place and aim detection equipment for optimum coverage
  • Validate performance during commissioning
  • Use performance-based design that adheres to codes and standards

Protecting LNG processing and storage sites and transportation vessels requires high-performance flame and gas detection and suppresson systems. Det-Tronics understands what is needed to meet and exceed the requirements of the Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).
