Lightning warning system – Process industry
Process industry lightning warning system from Biral. This easily installed system is represented exclusively by Derwent James Ltd in the UK process sector. The BTD-200 is a self-contained, standalone lightning warning system and is therefore particularly useful on process sites such as in the chemical, petrochemical and oil & gas sectors.
The BTD-200 lightning warning system is a complete detection and warning system
which has been developed from the Biral range of professional aviation grade lightning
detection systems. Its proven detection technology reliably detects the presence of
all forms of lightning out to a range of 22 miles from the sensor. Designed
to be quickly and easily installed, it comes complete with a universal mains voltage
power supply and the essential PC server application Lightning Works for monitoring,
warning and data logging of approaching thunderstorms.
The BTD-200 has many significant advantages over traditional field‑mill devices, including;
- Greater detection range
- No moving parts
- Longer life
- Lower service costs
- Lower false alarm rates
Therefore the BTD-200 is an ideal upgrade for users of field-mills in the process sector. Reliable thunderstorm detection allows chemical process operations to take the appropriate safety precautions in a timely manner and only when necessary. Once the storm threat has passed, normal operations can be resumed quickly and safely, so protecting plant and life whilst maximising operating efficiencies.
So is this system of interest to your chemical manufacturing or processing facility? How would it benefit you as an engineer, where would you install it?
For a relatively small cost this system will give you the heads up of any impending lightning strikes in your local area, that information can be monitored live in your control room, in your gate house, in key office areas at the reception desk. Worth a look at least?
