Shale shaker ventilations

Shale shaker ventilation

Reliable gas detection has been close to impossible in the dirtiest environments offshore. So far.

In the harshest oil and gas environments, achieving reliable gas detection is extremely challenging. One of the primary concerns in the drilling area of an oil rig, is hydrocarbon leakage from the well. The risk is that this may lead to a “blow out”.

Up until now, traditional IR detectors have been chosen for this task, due to a lack of other options. However, traditional IR gas detectors rely on close proximity to the source for the best results. This is not suitable in extreme conditions where the risk of detector pollution is extremely high, such as shale shaker rooms.
