Air Sampling

vesdafamsmKeller Fire & Safety offers air sampling equipment that detects the presence of particles in a very early stage of combustion, even before smoke is visible. This allows you the valuable time you need to prevent fire loss.

The VESDA® LaserPLUS system provides the industry’s most trusted line of products for air sampling early warning systems. The system utilizes Detector modules, Display modules, and a Programmer Module to provide the best aspirating detection system available today. VESDA® also now has a LaserCOMPACT™ system. LaserCOMPACT™ offers a simple and cost effective solution to protect single environments, and small areas.

Air aspirating smoke detectors, also known as air sampling smoke detectors, are designed to detect the presence of smoke in a building or other space. These types of smoke detectors work by continuously drawing air through a network of small tubes or pipes and analyzing the air for the presence of smoke particles.

The purpose of air aspirating smoke detectors is to provide an early warning of the presence of smoke, allowing people to evacuate a building or take other appropriate action in the event of a fire. These types of smoke detectors are typically used in large commercial or industrial buildings, where the risk of fire is greater and the consequences of a fire could be more severe.

Air aspirating smoke detectors are more sensitive than other types of smoke detectors, and are able to detect the presence of smoke particles at very low concentrations. This allows them to detect the early stages of a fire, when there may not be enough smoke present to trigger other types of smoke detectors.

Air aspirating smoke detectors are also able to detect a wider range of smoke types and particle sizes, making them more effective at detecting fires that may not produce traditional smoke. For example, they can detect the presence of flaming or smoldering fires, as well as fires that produce toxic gases or other types of smoke.

Overall, the purpose of air aspirating smoke detectors is to provide an early warning of the presence of smoke and help prevent fires from spreading, ultimately saving lives and property.

Gas Detection

Keller Fire & Safety offers gas detection systems that can detect and monitor combustible and toxic gases as well as oxygen.

Gas detection is important for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, it helps to protect people from the dangers of toxic gases. Many gases, such as carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulfide, are odorless and colorless, making them difficult for people to detect without the help of specialized equipment. By continuously monitoring the air for these gases, gas detection systems can alert people to the presence of these hazards, allowing them to take appropriate action to protect themselves.

In addition to protecting people, gas detection is also important for protecting the environment. Many gases, such as methane and sulfur dioxide, are harmful to the environment and can contribute to air pollution. By detecting these gases and taking action to reduce their emissions, we can help to protect the environment and preserve it for future generations.

Finally, gas detection is important in a variety of industries, including petrochemical, mining, and manufacturing. In these industries, gas detection systems help to ensure the safety of workers and protect against costly equipment damage or downtime due to gas leaks or spills. Overall, gas detection is a vital tool for protecting people, the environment, and industry.

Leak Detection

dripKeller Fire & Safety is proud to offer leak detection systems that detect the presence of liquid, whether it is water, chemicals, or fuels.

Leak detection is an important aspect of industrial facility maintenance and operation for several reasons:

  1. Safety: Leaks can be dangerous and pose a risk to the safety of workers, the environment, and the surrounding community. For example, a gas leak could lead to an explosion or fire, while a chemical leak could result in hazardous exposure to workers or the release of harmful substances into the environment.
  2. Efficiency: Leaks can also lead to the loss of valuable resources, such as water, gas, or chemicals, which can affect the efficiency and profitability of the facility.
  3. Compliance: Many industrial facilities are required to meet regulatory standards and guidelines, including those related to environmental protection and safety. Leak detection can help facilities meet these requirements and avoid fines or other penalties.
  4. Reputation: Leaks can also damage a company’s reputation, as they can lead to negative publicity and public concern about the safety and environmental impact of the facility.

Leak detection is the process of identifying and locating leaks in pipelines, tanks, or other systems that contain fluids or gases. Leaks can be caused by a variety of factors, such as corrosion, damage, or wear and tear. Leak detection is important because leaks can cause damage to the surrounding environment, as well as to the equipment itself. They can also lead to costly repairs and downtime.

There are several methods that can be used to detect leaks, including visual inspection, pressure testing, and the use of sensors or other specialized equipment. The most appropriate method will depend on the type of system being tested and the nature of the leak. Some methods, such as visual inspection, are relatively simple and can be performed by trained technicians. Other methods, such as pressure testing, may require specialized equipment and expertise.

In general, the goal of leak detection is to identify and repair leaks as quickly as possible in order to minimize any negative impacts. This may involve identifying the source of the leak, repairing the damaged component, and testing the system to ensure that it is fully sealed.

Overall, leak detection is important for ensuring the safety and efficiency of an industrial facility, as well as for meeting regulatory requirements and maintaining a positive reputation.
