Gas Detection System for Silane, Hydrogen, & Other Laboratory Gases


A military research facility designed a series of research and development labs.  The bid request included design and build requirements.  The construction contractor was to provide a gas detection and emergency alarm system that met all building codes and special requirements.  These labs utilized hazardous flammable and toxic gases.  These gases were used in chemical vapor deposition stations and a number of other specialty processes.  The different gases all needed different sensing technologies.  The design had to include several types of gas detection technology.

Project Results

Ino-Tek provided assistance to the design and build team.  The design concepts developed by Ino-Tek were a component in the winning team’s presentation.  The final design combined three types of gas detection integrated together in a single system.  The final design was simple to understand, operate, and maintain.  It was tied into both the building management and security systems.
