Gas Detection System Power Generation Industry

Power Generation Industry - Flame & Combustible Gas Detection


The Power Generation Industry increasingly demands CONSPEC Controls equipment for the detection and monitoring of carbon monoxide, methane, and other toxic or combustible gases found in coal-burning plants, including those using Powder River Basin (PRB) coal. CONSPEC’s CO gas detection system can provide early warning of fire to increase personnel safety and decrease equipment downtime for greater productivity.

The increased use of (PRB) coal has presented special challenges in fire prevention at power plants. PRB coal’s lower BTU and higher moisture content produces more coal dust than regular bituminous coal. The PRB Users Group recommends carbon monoxide detection for fire prevention in bag houses and silos.

All CONSPEC gas detectors can serve as complete stand-alone equipment, or integrate with preexisting PLC or SCADA networks. These detectors can be tied to a central computer where alarming, trending, and historical storage will take place. After a baseline is set, audible and visual alarms will alert personnel to take action when an upward trend in CO concentration levels has been identified.

With increasing liability insurance premiums in the coal-fired power and cogeneration industries, and a growing need to increase productivity in these power plants, it is more important than ever to employ preventive measures.
