This course intends to give a basic overview and fundamentals of combustible and Toxic gas detection applications and systems. It will cover the theory, operation, maintenance, and calibration of various systems, including personal, portable, and fixed gas detection and environment monitoring applications. It will cover the basics required to understand how these systems function, including draw tubes, portable vacuum pumps, and fixed-mounted systems.

Integral to the training is the understanding of the personal safety and facility protection these systems provide from hazardous and combustible gases. Students will understand the measurements that these instruments will provide. Whether it is parts per billion (ppb), parts per million (ppm), L.E.L, U.E.L, % per volume, and what each of these indications means.

Discussion on the integration of the daily work environment of personal monitors. Understand the criticality of peruse bump tests, alarm levels, interpreting readings, data recording, calibration, and general use.

The course will also discuss fire, smoke, and heat detection systems and how best to maintain and troubleshoot these systems. Discuss maintenance of fix systems and how they can integrate into DCS and PLC control systems. The course is intended for anyone working with detection equipment, their managers and supervisors, and anyone requiring a better understanding of how detection systems can protect life and limb and be used to monitor and protect.
