Gas analysis and detection

Simtronics' GD10P/PE Gas Detectors now SIL2 certified

Simtronics is pleased to announce that its GD10P and GD10PE infrared gas detectors are now certified SIL 2 and SIL 3 capable.The GD10P series detectors are 4-20 mA analog Point Infrared combustible gas transmitters with long life and very low maintenance.

The Simtronics GD10P detector is the benchmark for combustible gas detection on offshore installations. It has set the standard for gas detectors in the areas of safety, stability and low maintenance. The GD10P comes with 5 years warranty on the complete transmitter and a 15 year warranty on the IR Source. The GD10P has been designed with features that provide an effective response to the detection of gas hazards in a wide range of industrial environments from boiler plant rooms to offshore petrochemical installations.

These infrared gas detectors differ from all other models, because they utilize silicon based solid-state infrared sources. The complete optomechanical design and construction is so stable that an ultrafast speed of response of less than 2 seconds can be achieved whilst providing unparalleled service life and detector stability, thus saving on maintenance and service costs.

We offer the longest combined detector and IR source warranty on the market. For retrofit applications, a bridge interface is available allowing the detector to be connected directly to catalytic systems, using the existing cabling and control modules.

The detector is supplied with worldwide performance and hazardous area approvals. An industry standard HART® interface is used for configuration of the optical fast response time and special fault levels as well as access to extended maintenance data.

Now all of these features are covered by TÜV Rheinland Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2 certification for a single transmitter, and SIL 3 certification for installations with redundant transmitters.

Simtronics in profile
Simtronics, a subsidiary of Scott Safety, a TYCO group company, is a world-class provider of sophisticated gas and flame detection systems. The company has more than 25 years´ experience in supplying gas detection for use in applications ranging from plant boiler rooms to offshore petrochemical facilities.

Industrial SafetyTechnologies (IST) was acquired by Scott Safety, a Tyco business, from Battery Ventures in March 2015. The combination of IST, a global leader in gas and flame detection, and Scott Safety makes Tyco one of the largest global designers and manufacturers of gas and flame detection products, and reinforces Tyco´s commitment to growing its gas and flame detection business.
