Fire and Gas Philosophy

The Fire and Gas philosophy drives the design basis of the entire gas detection system. The philosophy should provide general direction, intent, specific performance goals, and effective strategies on how to implement the gas detection system. It clearly specifies the chemicals of concern and the intended purposes, i.e., detection of toxic or combustible levels, voting requirements, alarm rationalization, and control actions.

aeSolutions' Fire and Gas team can support gas detection systems from conceptual design through field installation. This includes developing a Fire and Gas philosophy, technology selection, ensuring an appropriately sized system, and fire and gas mapping using the Geographic coverage approach and/or Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) scenario-based modeling to determine gas detector placement.
