Leading the Way in Oil and Gas FGFD Safety

Oil, gas and petrochemical industries and their potentially hazardous and combustible materials require gas and flame detection and monitoring solutions. Chemical handling, storage, and possible spills and leaks require early detection and fast response using durable, reliable detection instruments. MSA designs and manufactures a complete line of world-class detection products for oil, gas and petrochemical facilities monitoring.

Whether upstream, downstream, or midstream, continuous combustible and toxic gas monitoring is critical.

Dangerous hydrocarbons can accumulate during separation, dehydrating and processing. Hydrogen Sulfide(H2S) gas can pocket during exploration and processing, posing risks to facilities and workers.

ULTIMA® X5000 Gas Monitor

The ULTIMA® X5000 Gas Monitor is the future of gas detection for oxygen, toxic and combustible gases. MSA XCell® gas sensors with TruCal® technology offer calibration cycles up to 24 months (local calibration respected). The gas transmitter's advanced, multi-lingual OLED display is easy to read and the unique touch-screen interface makes it simple to navigate.

From perimeter monitoring to point and flame detection, MSA offers detection suite that covers midstream applications.

FL4000H Multi-spectrum IR Flame Detector

The FL4000H is an advanced multi-spectrum infrared (MSIR) flame detector that provides superior false alarm immunity with the widest field of view. The FL4000H employs a multi-spectral optical IR sensing array with a sophisticated Neural Network Technology (NNT) system to reliably discriminate between actual flames and the vast majority of false alarm sources. The FL4000H detects typical fires such as alcohol, n-heptane, gasoline, jet fuels and hydrocarbons. It can also see through dense smoke produced by diesel, rubber, plastics and lube oil fires.
