Leading the Way in Commercial FGFD Safety

The HVAC industry presents a wide variety of gas detection needs, from boiler rooms, to engineering and research labs, transportation maintenance facilities to a number of other industrial building and facility applications. To enable personnel to work safely within these environments, monitoring of toxic gases, oxygen enrichment and deficiency and combustible gases is crucial.

Top protection for the most important part of your building.

A building’s mechanical room is the hub of its heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. This can include central utility plants, boiler and chiller rooms, mechanical and electrical rooms and fuel rooms. The equipment within these rooms has the potential to leak harmful combustible or toxic gases, including costly and environmentally harmful refrigerant gases.

Chillgard® 5000 Refrigerant Leak Monitor

The Chillgard 5000 Refrigerant Leak Monitor provides the earliest level of detection of costly refrigerant gas leaks in mechanical equipment rooms. Sampling system with patented photoacoustic infrared (PAIR) technology detects leaks as low as 1 part per million (ppm). Intuitive, touchscreen user interface makes it easy to operate. Predictive maintenance and diagnostics keep you operational.

Most of the global production of ammonia is based on steam reforming of natural gas. During synthesis, natural gas molecules are reduced to carbon and hydrogen. The hydrogen is then purified and reacted with nitrogen to produce ammonia. The process requires feeding the reactants over iron catalysts at a high pressure and temperature.

An additional source for obtaining the hydrogen necessary for ammonia production comes from water electrolysis. The process splits water into hydrogen and oxygen by using electricity. Electrolysis of water using wind, water or solar power are viable alternatives that offer a zero-emission cycle.

The processes involved in ammonia production require gasses to be under high pressure which poses the risk of gas leakage. Ultrasonic technology greatly supports traditional catalytic bead gas detectors for the detection of hydrogen resulting in faster leak detection. Additionally, installed hydrogen flame detectors allow for identification of invisible fires and helps prevent consequential explosions.

Another risk is related to outdoor exposure to ammonia, from leaks and spills at production plants and storage facilities. Open path toxic gas detectors help to mitigate that risk covering large areas where quick dilution of leaking gas can be a significant issue.

Z-Gard® DS MPO Dual Gas Sensor

The Z-Gard DS MPO Gas Sensor connects directly to a building automation system for dual gas monitoring solutions. It detects the presence of carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide. The Z-Gard DS MPO Sensor communicates with one of several industry standard protocols, providing seamless integration with commercial automation systems.

Cold storage isn’t without combustion risks.

Ammonia (NH3) is commonly used as a refrigerant in large industrial cold storage facilities. Ammonia leak detection systems can be installed to help mitigate the risks of toxicity and explosion.

Chillgard® 5000 Ammonia Monitor

The Chillgard 5000 Ammonia Monitor accurately detects ammonia gas leaks as low as 10 ppm for early notification, keeping your plant safe according to ANSI/IIAR and EN 378. Using Photoacoustic Infrared (PAIR) technology provides a more accurate measurement and requires less maintenance than traditional electrochemical gas sensors for lower cost of ownership.

Enhance the safety of all of your occupants.

Building systems that employ Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems have long refrigerant piping runs that have the potential to leak into occupied space if not properly monitored.

Chillgard® VRF Refrigerant Leak Detector

The Chillgard VRF Refrigerant Leak Detector is the first industry detector for Variable Refrigerant Flow Systems (VRF) with integrated BACnet capability. Therefore, it can be directly connected with any Building Management Systems (BMS). MSA applies its proven Photoacoustic infrared sensing technology that provides a stable zero baseline, minimizes cross-sensitivities and offers low cost of ownership through minimum maintenance required.
