and Environmental Monitoring
Some of the most dangerous hazards in critical infrastructure and manufacturing environments are invisible … yet their effects can be disastrous. From flammable gases such as hydrogen and methane that build up in battery rooms and utility tunnels to toxic gases like carbon monoxide -- proactive gas detection and environmental monitoring can help you avoid disasters.
Fike has long partnered with Xtralis to bring you the highly effective VESDA Aspirating Smoke Detection (ASD) technology. We are now introducing VESDA ECO™ by Xtralis™ … the first system to combine ASD with gas detection and environmental monitoring.
VESDA ECO uses the existing VESDA air-sampling pipe network to actively monitor for gas leaks and continuously ensure air quality in occupied areas. This simple expansion requires no construction and does not involve installing electrical conduit. The VESDA ECO system detects unseen hazards by conditioning or filtering the air to remove moisture, interferent gases, dirt and other particulates that can cause traditional point gas detection systems to false alarm or become contaminated.
Each VESDA ECO gas detector can house up to two gas sensors, and additional detectors can be added easily to the VESDA pipe network to monitor more gases if required. It also integrates with other building systems, including fire alarm control panels (such as the Cybercat), PLCs, HVAC and building management systems. For example, VESDA ECO can be used in a transportation hub to monitor carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide levels, activating variable-speed fans as part of a demand-controlled ventilation system, which controls costs and saves energy.
With Fike and VESDA ECO by Xtralis, you can proactively protect your facility with early warning fire and gas detection and maintain enterprise air quality - with cost savings up to 50 percent - and more reliable results over traditional gas detectors.
