CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, Oct.6, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Honeywell (Nasdaq: HON) today announced the release of two new® *-connected gas detectors that can provide continuous monitoring of hazardous gases even in foggy, rainy, snowy and other inclement weather, helping facilities keep their workers safe in oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical and others, as well as their industrial sites.
The new Honeywell Searchline Excel ™ Plus and Searchline Excel ™ Edge are the next generation of open path gas detectors that use advanced optics and high power infrared technology, allowing devices to stay online in weather conditions with worse visibility and at longer distances than before. The new gas detectors also feature Bluetooth connectivity which makes maintenance and calibration of devices faster and easier for plant personnel.
“The protection of construction sites and workers is the number one priority for any company,” said Jason winburn, Senior Product Manager, Honeywell Gas Analysis and Safety. Honeywell’s Searchline Excel Plus and Searchline Excel Edge systems can continuously monitor for leaks, even in inclement weather, giving plant operators the peace of mind of knowing their gas detection system can withstand a variety of conditions. exterior. “
Many traditional open-channel fixed gas detectors and monitors can be vulnerable to weather conditions such as fog, rain, snow, and fog. In these cases, signals from open path detectors can be blocked, taking devices offline and unable to monitor harmful flammable hydrocarbon gases. Thanks to Honeywell’s advanced optics and near-band infrared absorption technology built into Searchline devices, they have the ability to penetrate through thick fog with minimal visibility.
In addition, the Searchline Excel Plus and Edge have Bluetooth connectivity. These gas detectors can be combined with the Honeywell Fixed Platform application, offering simplified maintenance and testing procedures, which means more efficient and safer performance checks. For example, since workers can use their mobile devices up to 20 meters, or around 60 feet, to perform maintenance checks, they do not need to climb tall ladders regularly and risk falling to check. devices located at height.
Open path gas detectors play an important role in a facility’s fixed gas detection system, creating an invisible line that detects gases passing between the transmitter and receiver of the device. Searchline Excel Plus monitors short and medium range applications from 2 to 120 meters (6 to 393 feet), allowing workers to monitor specific areas or equipment for continuous safety applications.
The Searchline Excel Edge provides long range perimeter or fence line surveillance from 60 to 330 meters (196 to 1,083 feet). In addition to the direction and speed of the wind, construction workers can both monitor whether their facility could emit noxious gases to neighboring areas or whether neighboring factories may have their own leaks passing through the property of the. installation and need to be addressed. In either case, monitoring gas emissions demonstrates environmental due diligence and can be a factor in avoiding or reducing costly fines and litigation.
