Monitoring Air Intakes in Turbines
Turbine failure causes fast growth and movement of flammable gas clouds which if not detected quickly, can result in uncontrollable explosion. A major hazard is formation of gas clouds and their possible migration to the air intake of a turbine or into the ventilation or air conditioning system. The flammable gases may be rapidly sucked into the turbine and reach the combustion chamber or be ignited by hot spots.
The key is fast response and SafEye Duct Gas Monitors rapidly (within 2-3 secs) activate the turbine emergency shutdown when a high flammable gas concentration is detected.
Safeye duct mounted open-path gas detectors provide rapid and reliable warning of ingress of combustible gases into turbine air intakes or ventilation systems.
