SEC INFRARED GAS DETECTORS
MONITOR MAINTENANCE, STORAGE AND
WASH BAY AREAS FOR METHANE LEAKS
INDIGO in Indiana, PA (famous actor Jimmy Stewart’s birthplace) installed a Sensor Electronics combustible gas detection system. The system monitors the Maintenance, Storage and Wash Bay areas for potential combustible leaks. The 14-point combustible methane gas sensors are used to detect possible methane leaks for the transit authorities compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles. If the system detects a gas concentration of 20% LEL (Lower Explosive Limit) audible and visual alarms are energized, exhaust fans turn on, drive through doors open and the security company is called by telephone. The CNG fueling station that is currently under construction will be used by IINDIGO and general public. The CNG fueling station has two J-W Power CNG Compressors. The compressors are equipped with Sensor Electronics infrared methane sensors designed to detect CNG compressor leaks.
