Secure gas MONITORING when working in tanks and CONFiNED spaces KTV Group has been managing gas measurement in tanks for several years on rig classification projects. We have followed the development of requirements for gas measurement in tank and enclosed spaces up close. Today KTV Group have 15 certified gas certificate issuers.
The cost is reduced.
In recent years, the demands have become greater in relation to the documentation of air quality. The industry has found that the need for documentation is necessary to ensure the safety of workers in these environments. But has the industry done enough?
All readings available live online (web).
Most areas have requirements for measuring every 6-24 hours, in addition to the requirements of personal measures on workers. KTV Group has over a long period of work and during many projects noticed the following problems: - When working in tanks the environment changes quickly. If changes happens it doesnâ€™t help much if the gas measurements were taken an hour earlier. - Individual monitors are often damaged due to stress from the work environment and can lead to a false sense of security for the worker. - There is often a lack of individual monitors, or they are not used, even if the entry certificate requires so. - There have been a number of cases where hot work has been initiated without a valid gas certificate. - Gases from solvents, cutting torch or other hazards are not captured during work. - The cost is high due to the cost of certificate per tank. - No quality control on the documentation of the air quality in the tank if there is an accident. KTV Groupâ€™s development section has for six months been working on a solution to all these challenges, and now we will present a method that solves them all.
Introducing the AQ MONITOR system The AQ MONITOR system measures the gases in the tank/ confined spaces continuously 24 hours a day. No individual monitors necessary. The system also measures vapors from solvents/flame cutting.
Complete measuring history during the entire period. Sensors tailored to customer requirements.
So how does it work? No 1. Planning. Usually we know the scope of work before the rig is docked. Therefor the number of sensors can be mobilized and ready before the rig docks. No 2. Placement of the monitors. Our coordinator ensures placement of monitors in all places where work will be carried out. This is done in cooperation with the rig management. No 3. The monitors will stand on the outside of the tanks. When the values exceeds the assigned values, the monitor will make an alarm sound and the warning light signal will start blinking. The guard can start to evacuate the tank or confined space immediately. No 4. The measurements starts and the certificate issuer puts the appropriate certificates on all measuring locations. The certificate is valid until there is an alarm. When an alarm goes off the certificate issuer will take the appropriate action and then he will re-certify the entry certificate. No 5. In our control center we monitor all measurements 24 hours a day. Our on-site coordinator is in contact with the control center if incidents should occur. The control center will report to the customer. No 6. The customer can follow all the monitors measurements via web if desired. The control center ensures that the documentation is satisfactory. If there is network problems and the control center loses contact with the network, the on site certificate issuer also has a portable monitor to capture alarms. No 7. Project ends. KTV Group stores complete history of all measurements and monitoring on the web. These data will be available for the customer as long as the customer desires - even after the project has ended.
Locations We perform these services world wide.
