Fire & Gas System Design
The FireBus engineering team includes Professional Engineers, NICET Certified personnel, and specialized engineering affiliates all of whom provide a wide range of capabilities to the organization, and all of whom have a knowledge base rooted in the Fire & Gas industry. FireBus has the capability to design safety systems based on a variety of platforms to fill the needs of our industrial customer base. From ordinary locations up to Class I, Division 1 areas and everything in between, we have a solution that can meet the need.
Fire & Gas Mapping
As a result of this experience FireBus engineers using a range of Fire and Gas Detection Mapping Tools can provide an estimate of the performance of Fire and Gas Detection coverage taking into account the target hazard types and sizes and effects on detection equipment from the local environment. The combined experience of the FireBus and their team partners offer the industry world-class engineering services with in-country support.
Fire and Gas Detection systems play a crucial role in Loss Prevention on many sites. Formal Safety Assessments such as Quantified Risk Assessments (QRA) often assume that Fire and Gas Detection Systems will reduce risks, yet their design is often a matter of “black art”; it is often difficult to quantify the parameters involved and there is little guidance to define required performance or to relate achieved performance to safety requirements.
Modern fire and Gas detection designs tend towards hazard based approach featuring recognized and quantified hazards, for example ranging from highly sensitive items such as hydrocarbon Gas Compressors through to lower risk items such as Produced Water vessels.
Using highly developed assessment methods together with custom software the FDA (Flame Detection Assessment), GDA (Gas Detection Assessment) and HDA (Heat Detection Assessment) packages FireBus is able to review and assess arrangements from initial designs through construction and onto existing installation. The assessments are used to optimize and validate designs and maybe used in formal safety studies.
