SEC GAS DETECTORS MONITOR
MAINTENANCE FACILITY AT MCTA
MCTA in Swiftwater, PA installed a Sensor Electronics combustible gas detection system. The system monitors the Maintenance area for potential combustible leaks. The 3-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 MCTA. 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.
