Gas detection system manufacturer Det-Tronics has released a new explosion-proof smoke detector that is suitable for hazardous, industrial and commercial applications.
The Det-Tronics® SmokeWatchTM U5015 Explosion-Proof Smoke Detector features signal processing, advanced photovoltaic operation and a rugged design in order to handle extreme environments.
When used in tandem with the Q5016 Duct Mount Accessory, the U5015 smoke detector can be easily installed onto the exterior of duct walls for air-handling duct monitoring applications. The Q5016 senses differential pressure between inlet and outlet tubes to drive a continuous air sample through the SmokeWatch measurement chamber.
The new device has been especially designed for heavy industrial applications, such as offshore oil rigs, wastewater treatment plants and other high-hazard environments to provide crucial safety measures.
Headquartered in Minnesota, US, Det-Tronics is a leader in fire and gas-safety systems and provides premium flame and gas-detection and hazard-mitigation systems for high-risk processes and industrial operations.
Equipment designed especially for hazardous areas is critical in the production and distribution of industrial, medical and specialty gases. The February 2017 issue of gasworld (US Edition) will shine the spotlight on the essential safety equipment used throughout the industry.

Acetylene is one of the most dangerous flammable gases. Because of its molecular triple carbon bond it inherently has a great deal of stored energy able to be released either in a controlled process, such as welding and cutting, or in an uncontrolled fashion during decomposition.
