Fire Detection for Transit Vehicles
Gas Detection System Description
Gas monitoring systems are pre-engineered systems designed to be utilized on any type of alternately fueled vehicle. The system can be installed by the vehicle OEM or retrofitted. Its advanced technology can detect: Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), Propane (LPG), Hydrogen and any other hydrocarbon fuel vapors.
Typical Applications for Gas Detection Systems
Light, Medium and Heavy Duty Vehicle, School Buses, Shuttle Buses, Taxi Cabs, Paratransit Vans, Transit Buses, Postal Vehicles, Delivery Vehicles, Over the Road Trucks, Waste Trucks, Fork Lifts, or any vehicle utilizing an alternate fuel.
Functional Description of Gas Detection Systems
The systems installed by General Fire utilize multiple sensors for identifying misdirected gas. The systems operate with both a visual and an audible alarm to warn the vehicle operator of potential danger. The system alarms at a trace level (20% LFL) and significant level (50% LFL) of gas concentration. System and sensor operation are constantly monitored and feature zoned sensing capabilities. In addition, the systems feature an optional internal relay for automatic control of auxiliary devices (i.e. engine shutdown, fuel valve shutoff, auxiliary alarm, etc.)
