Gas Detection

New Employee Orientation
• In the great majority and toxic gases
or vapors, have no color or odor,
which will never be recommended to
rely only on our senses to determine
the quality of air in a confined space

. . • 5 ) Solubility in fluids of human tissues . • 3 ) State of dispersion (particle size or physical state ).” • The important environmental analysis of a hazardous atmosphere is considered to relate the existing concentration or the minimum dose from which the product becomes dangerous • 1 ) Concentration or quantity of product. • 4) Affinity with the tissue of the human body." All substances are poisons . • 2 ) Exposure . is the dose that differentiates between poisons and medicines . • 6 ) Sensitivity of the organs or tissues of the human body..

three possible dangers following ( in
this order ) :
• Oxygen deficiency or enrichment ;
• explosion , and
• Toxic atmospheres .

ANY PREPARATION FOR AN ENTRY
SHOULD FOLLOW THREE GUIDELINES
• First - the atmosphere should be
evaluated to determine if it is acceptable
for an entry permit ;
• Second - the atmosphere should be
assessed upon entry to verify that the
conditions are still maintained at an
acceptable level ;
• Third - in some situations , it will be
necessary to assess the exposure of
workers to contaminants possibly
generated by processes during entry .

56 ) .97 ) . Are considered less dangerous . . • The gas density less than 1 are lighter than air and therefore tends to rise.05) .DENSITY • The gas density greater than 1 are heavier than air and therefore tends to decline. Are considered the most dangerous . for example : Propane ( 1.59 ) and carbon monoxide ( 0. for example : Ammonia ( 0. Butane ( 2.

Why this is importante? • This is an important criterion to determine the positioning of gas detection devices in order to have a qualitative and quantitative analysis needs .

because as we saw in the definition of density.ATMOSPHERIC • This pressure can vary. and in places the sea level is higher. • Besides temperature . . The lower the pressure on the surface of a liquid . Therefore . the vaporization is easier because the liquid molecules are less resistant to abandon it and turn into steam . in higher places the pressure is lower . atmospheric pressure also influences the change in state. the weight of the gas column that rises is determined because of the altitude level that we are relative to our atmosphere .

elasticity is the property that a gas has to compress or stretch under pressure and the space available on which it acts .ELASTICITY The gases are elastic . Therefore. In short . . Can either be compressed . we believe that the same quantity of a gas can occupy a small or large volume. that is they are compressible and extensible. as may be extended when it is spun by a pulling force .

EXPANDABILITY • It is the ability of a gas to spread or expand the space . They only become increasingly distant from each other . for example. the number of its molecules does not increase. A practical example is one that occurs with ammonia . . when we open the container in which it is packaged quickly realized his presence by the strong odor. occupying an increasing volume. An important detail here is that when a gas expands occupying an increasing space . • This occurs because the particles of ammonia rapidly expanding space.

products which have a low flash point are potentially explosive atmosphere to generate more easily. • Alcohol : + 22 ° . • Diesel : + 43.FLASH POINT • It is the lowest temperature at which a fuel vapor releases sufficient to form a flammable mixture quantity.38 ° . • In general. For classification purposes flammable liquids having flash point < 60 ° C. Are identified • Petrol : . .3 ° .

• Acetylene : +305 ° . . • regardless of the existence of an external source of heat. • Carbon Monoxide :+605 ° . • Hydrogen : +560 ° . • Methane :+ 595 ° .AUTO-IGNITION TEMPERATURE • It is the lowest temperature at which the gases given off from a fuel body form a concentration of flammable gas that explodes on contact with the oxygen in the air . • Kerosene : + 210 ° . • Propane: + 470 ° .

. middle and bottom.Evaluated at confined space • The confined space must be evaluated at the top. because of the stratification of gases and vapors . ie . • It is very important to know the density of the gas in order to identify their behavior . if he . the leak will rise or will be deposited in the lower layers of the site.

Long horizontal confined spaces must also be fully evaluated for its entire length. OSHA determines that the readings are made at least every 4 feet apart. .

. Opening other manholes If this is not possible. will be required.Some confined spaces can be adequately assessed from the same manhole used for input.

. each with its • advantages and disadvantages . In gas detection for confined spaces will use portable • equipment as a complete analysis . at all levels . Can be fixed or portable reading providing two types : direct and indirect .GAS DETECTION EQUIPMENT • There is a variety of equipment identification and measurement of gases and vapors • . to be stepped into the compartment is • required.

.GAS • Are read directly used to detect more than one substance at the same time equipment. NR -33 requires that the detector is intrinsically safe. carbon monoxide and H2S gases or vapors ) and can get up to 5 gases . • Work with two or three types of sensors installed. as in the last generation where there is a recognition of flammable gases or vapors in inert equipment areas .MULTI . is normally used to detect gases at least 4 ( in the oil & gas industry are applied to the most oxygen .

• The disadvantages of these sensors are sensitive to changes in humidity and at high concentrations of calibration easy . Cl2 . HCl and organic vapors . Are inexpensive .• The intelligent sensors are electrochemical sensors ( for each individual substance) where a gas is diffused inside the sensor and responds by producing a current that results in information indicated concentration . Are indicated for most of the chemical. SO2 . NH3 . HCN . can be replaced and are interchangeable depending on model of equipment . O2 . H2S . . CO .

• Must be certified.CERTIFICATION • The certification of equipment is mandatory by Order No. tested for its performance by the agency responsible and accompanied by a Certificate of Compliance . 83 of INMETRO.

TEST ANSWER • The equipment must have their tested with a standard gas to maintain its response due to the presence of the gas sensors. It is only safe way to ensure that your sensors are working perfectly. .

As it is a requirement that the atmosphere be continuously evaluated during the execution of work in confined spaces due to the possibility of developing dangerous products generated by the service itself running. the use of these devices allows employees themselves can receive accurate and immediate information on the atmospheric conditions of the environment in which they are inserted. .PERSONAL DETECTOR • As the name already indicates are for personal use and therefore should not be used for gas analysis.

PIPE BOMB COLORIMETRIC + ACCURO Are indirect readout equipment. Inside the tube there is a mixture of reactive substances. if use of the principle that the chemical reaction causes a color change to a precise indication of the . in contact with a contaminated atmosphere.

• Increased number of possible substances to be recognized (more than 5 different substances). • Large range of measurement (allows measurements of high concentrations). .The advantages of this device are: • Low cost.

Although certain confined with a small setup and receiving good natural lighting spaces may waive the use of lighting. So it should always be planned to support an artificial lighting (by wire or laptop) to facilitate the performance of tasks within the confined . and are appropriate for use in potentially explosive areas.787 provides that the lighting fixtures should also be available for confined space entries.

FALLS LOCK • Tripods and monopods are usually equipped with cranks that contain a galvanized steel cable approximately ¼ inch in diameter. The devices function as fall arrest fall protection system in case of failures in the main cable or have incorporated cranks becoming rescuers. although larger diameters and stainless steel cables are also used. . Are used to ascend or descend stairs where people or other means of access are not available.

Entry Supervisor The entry supervisor is responsible for determining if entry conditions are acceptable at a permit space where entry is planned. and for terminating entry as required by this procedure. Normally. the entry supervisor is the supervisor of the crew entering the confined space. Each entry supervisor has the following responsibilities: . for authorizing entry and overseeing entry operations.

• Verifies that all tests specified by the permit have been conducted. including information on how exposure might occur and on the signs. • Verifies that the appropriate entries have been made on the entry permit. • Ensures that each member of the operation is trained in confined space work and their . • Briefs the entry team on the circumstances of this particular permit-required confined space. and consequences of the exposure.• Knows the hazards that may be encountered during entry. symptoms.

• Ensures that the confined space has been drained and cleaned • Ensures that the permit space has been thoroughly ventilated. • Verifies that all procedures and equipment specified by the permit are in place before endorsing the permit and allowing entry. vapors should be exhausted from the top of the space) • Verifies that all mechanical devices are disconnected from their power source and proper lockout procedures have been followed. preferably with fans or blowers (whenever practical. .

• Verifies that rescue services are available and that the means for summoning them are operable. • Removes unauthorized individuals who enter or attempt to enter the permit space during operations • Verifies that entry operations remain consistent with the terms of the entry permit and that acceptable entry conditions are maintained .• Terminates the entry and cancels the permit if conditions warrant.

• Makes a copy of the permit and returns the original to the appropriate client personnel department .When work inside the confined space has been performed. • Notifies the appropriate department that the confined space is ready to be placed back into Service. the entry supervisor will complete the following: • Be present with the individual who is to close the hatchways and/or covers to confirm that everyone is out of the confined space.

The other end of the retrieval line shall be attached to a mechanical device or fixed point outside of the permit space so that rescue can begin as soon as the rescuer becomes aware that .Personal Protective Equipment An individual who enters a confined space shall wear a chest or full-body harness with a retrieval line attached at the center of the entrant’s back near shoulder level or above the entrant’s head. Wristlets may be used in lieu of the chest or fullbody harness if it can be demonstrated that the chest or full-body harness is infeasible or creates a greater hazard.

Additional Safety Information • When flammable materials are being used (coating. • Air tools should be used whenever possible. paints. the perimeter and hatchways of the confined space must be flagged off to identify the flammable materials being used. cements. lining. or solvents). • Electrical lighting shall be low voltage (12 volts) with an approved guard over the bulb and/or shall have properly installed ground fault circuit interrupters. .

• Where multiple companies are to occupy one confined space. appropriate controls will be defined prior to entry operations so that work activities will not create a hazard for other employees. . Incidents will be investigated immediately by the Safety Department in conjunction with the Operating Department.Additional Safety Information •Any incident involving a confined space shall be reported to the Safety Department. Examples of controls include seal decks between work locations. safety nets. work practices. etc.

GFCIs are not approved for flammable atmospheres and must be located in an area where flammables are not present or a hot work permit must be issued. • Wiring of 110-volts inside the confined space must be protected from mechanical damage by routing the wiring inside flexible or rigid conduit from outside the confined space opening to the light fixture or by routing wiring away from areas of potential damage. Lighting may be 12 volt or 110 volt with ground fault circuit interrupters(GFCI). .Lighting • Lighting used for confined space entry must be suitable for the confined space.

Passageways or entryways into potential IDLH or inert-purged confined spaces will be fitted with a protective barrier (e.g.. orange construction fencing) to inhibit entry in addition to the “DANGER – DO NOT ENTER” sign. .DO NOT ENTER” signs remain in place until the conditions in the confined space have been tested and the permit approved and signed.DANGER – DO NOT ENTER” Signs • “Persons opening the confined space shall place a “DANGER – DO NOT ENTER” sign at each passageway or entryway as soon as the passageway has been opened or an entryway has been made. • The entry supervisor must ensure that the “DANGER .
