The OX-AN® brand has been at the forefront of gas detection systems and gas detection equipment for over 3o years.
OX-AN®’s Brownfield & Landfill Site Gas Detection Systems are designed for personnel safety monitoring in:
Since 1990, OX-AN® has been providing purpose built gas monitoring solutions for buildings constructed on brownfield sites. Methane and Carbon Dioxide gases from disused industrial sites, power stations, mine workings or landfill sites may, if undetected, pose a potentially serious threat to anyone living or working nearby. It is essential that such risks be minimised by the use of continuous and accurate gas monitoring within all voids, cavities, rooms and cupboards.
The system offers a cost effective, accurate and reliable solution for the continuous sampling of potentially harmful gases from contaminated sites. The system is available for commercial and industrial buildings, and can be configured in a special outside enclosure for residential housing.
OX-AN® Landfill Gas Safety Monitoring Systems use infrared sensors to measure the concentration of Methane and Carbon Dioxide that may be present.
Our system can monitor up to twelve spaces or compartments from a single installation. Air is sampled from each compartment through a series of solenoid valves via a highly reliable diaphragm pump on a time-shared basis.
The brown field / land fill site gas detection system is designed to operate continuously with service intervals of one year.
When a gas concentration greater than 0.5% Methane or 1.0% Carbon Dioxide is detected, the system will remain sampling from that area enabling the readings to be observed until the concentration falls or the system is reset.
The system is set to trigger the warning amber LED arrays if gas levels go above 0.5% Methane or 1.0% Carbon Dioxide and trigger the full system alarm red LED arrays and 90dB sounder should the gas levels exceed 1.0% Methane and 1.5% Carbon Dioxide.
A fast cycle override makes it possible to check the gas concentrations in all areas at three minute intervals when the need arises.
The analyser may sample air from any part of the building whether accessible or not. This is useful to detect ingress of gas through the slab by positioning the sample pipes in positions such as the mains water and electricity inlets. This is usually agreed at the planning stage with the Architects or Consultants.
Key Features of the OX-AN® Landfill/Brownfield Gas Monitoring System
Should the gas detection/monitoring system be activated by the detection of high levels of gases on a brown field / land fill site, the remote panel indicates the affected zone and whether the status is “warning” or “alarm”. This is sited in a position clearly visible from the outside (usually the foyer) and is invaluable to the emergency services who may assess the situation without entering the building.
How many sensing points do I need?
The number of sensing points required to adequately monitor a space depends upon a number of factors. Please contact us for free technical advice or a site visit.
