A Scientific Approach to Fire and Gas Detector Mapping and Why it Matters
Thursday, July 16, 2020 at 11:00 AM (CST)
Historically, the placement of fire and gas detectors has been based on experience and judgment. Detectors placed following this approach may provide valuable data and alarms, but detector placement is inconsistent from site to site. Performance-based detector placement using established consequence models, wind direction data, and 3D object interaction provides an approach that can be consistently applied across assets. When applied correctly, this scientific approach can save costs and increase safety at the same time.
Key highlights covered in this webinar:
- Scenario coverage approach - consequence-based F&G detector mapping
- Risk-based prioritization of F&G detectors
- Importance of validating the data with testing
- Example of F&G detector placement for a toxic shelter
