A Cordless Industry
It seems wireless technology is the way forward, both with how we live and how we work, especially in potentially dangerous environments.
In the past, when dust explosions have occurred from rapid combustion of fine particles, companies utilised wired explosion vent detection systems to try and prevent these incidents. While an effective solution, the systems needed to be hard wired, incurring an additional cost.
Rupture disc experts Elfab has designed and created GSM-Tel, a traditional explosion vent detection system with GSM technology that could potentially eliminate wiring costs in the future. This provides a modern and wire-free bursting disc detection system, providing instantaneous notification of explosion vent activation within remote conditions.
The solution is appropriate for any of Elfab’s explosion vent designs. It’s the first of its kind and is capable of interfacing with both single and multi-layer setups.
Remote locations are no exception. GSM-Tel is specifically designed for remote locations, allowing for improved explosion vent monitoring from afar. In the event of explosion vent activation, users will receive a fully customisable text message signifying panel rupture without being adjacent to the process.
Wiring costs could easily add up and take budget away from other necessities. As well as eliminating wiring costs, maintenance charges are similarly low. The battery-operated GSM alert system is reusable after explosion vent actuation for long-term reliability and minimal maintenance.
Safety is key and wireless technologies are working to make industries safer by preventing potential incidents which not only occur additional costs but could cost a company employees. As developments are made and systems grow more intelligent, we can expect heightened safety in the coming years — which is good news for everyone connected to the sector.
