ASME - Prevention of Fires in Coal-Handling Facilities: Continuous Monitoring of CO
While many power plants across the country now utilize coal-burning facilities, fires and explosions in these facilities are of increasing concern... (more)
COAL-GEN 2010 - Monitoring Carbon Monoxide and Methane for Early Fire Detection in Coal-Handling Facilities
While most coal-handling facilities today have some type of plant-wide monitoring and control system in place for fire detection, many of these still employ outdated devices and methods for effective suppression of fires and prevention of explosions.... (more)

Monitoring and Control of Carbon Monoxide Emissions in a Parking Structure
Carbon monoxide (CO) emissions from motor vehicles can have detrimental effects on the air quality inside subterranean parking garages. CO, an odorless, tasteless and colorless gas, is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in the United States. (more)
Xcel Energy’s Harrington Station
When Savage Energy Services began fuel-handling operations in two power plants in Texas, engineers there began to investigate methods to enhance the safe handling of Powder River Basin (PRB) coal. (more)
Xcel Energy’s Tolk Station
The coal-handling facility at Tolk Station is very similar to that at the Harrington Station with the exception of a rotary car dump... (more)

Combined Monitoring and Communications System for Active Shale Gas Drilling Sites
Problem: While the Marcellus Shale offers an abundance of natural gas, combustible gases such as methane or hydrogen sulfide can pose a danger at drilling sites. (more)
Marcellus Shale: Monitoring for Methane and other Combustible Gases in Compression Stations
Natural gas from the Marcellus Shale is a potentially vast energy resource and there are many reasons for tapping the natural gas in the shale. The main concern during the acquisition and processing of natural gas from the Marcellus Shale is safety—the need to protect human life—and also protect the processing plant, property and equipment against fire or explosion. (more)
Monitoring and Control of Carbon Monoxide Emissions in Parking Structures
A parking garage without adequate ventilation CO can easily exceed NIOSH and OSHA recommendations, putting workers, tenants and commuters at severe health and safety risks... (more)
Burning PRB coal: Problems and Solutions
One of the big challenges to the safe handling of Powder River Basin (PRB) coal is the fuel’s high concentration of fine particulates... (more)
