Gas Detection and Leak Detection Systems are required for virtually all heavy industrial manufacturing, processing and storage facilities. Petroleum refineries, Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) processing and storage facilities, Power Generation and Metals Processing, as well as Chemical and Material manufacturing, have significant Life Safety / Hazardous Material Emergency Alarm System requirements. These industrial facilities have an extremely large quantity of hazardous materials onsite creating safety challenges that scale as the transport and storage quantities increase – truckloads and train cars rather than smaller cylinders and containers.
The specific hazards in these industries arise from three sources: dangerous toxic, flammable and corrosive materials. They are transported into the facility to complete the required production processes – coming in by ship, by rail and by a truck in enormous quantities. Refined products of equal – or even more concentrated danger are created, stored and shipped to end-users. Finally, the waste material – sometimes hazardous in itself requires specialized disposal. Every step of the process requires an industrial emergency alert system.
Code Compliance is a legal requirement!
While many industries have their own standards for safety, Life Safety / Hazardous Material Emergency Alarm Systems that include Gas Detection and Leak Detection Systems must also meet the requirements of the International Building Code, the International Fire Code and comply with standards from National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Additionally, Hazardous Materials in the workplace require compliance with OSHA regulations.
Finally, no system is complete without regular maintenance including calibration and annual certification. Ino-Tek’s highly trained technicians perform thousands of maintenance and calibration procedures every year – making certain we keep your employees safe.
Whether you are building a new facility or have an existing one, talk to one of our Field Service Engineers to make sure it meets all compliance requirements.
