Micropack Fire and Gas Detection Course

Micropack’s Fire and Gas Detection course provides delegates with a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of Fire and Gas Detection Technology; from performance based design (fire and gas mapping) through to practical maintenance requirements.

Target Audience:

Technician through to Senior Engineer level.

Course delegates will receive fire and gas detection course literature and certification once course is completed. Lunch will be provided for all course delegates.

Learning Objectives:

The following learning objectives are covered within the training course:

Comprehensive Understanding of Fire and Gas Detection Systems:

  • Industry Code of Practice

Strengths, limitations of use and characteristics of various detector technologies:

  • Flame Detection: UV, UV/IR, IR, IR3, Visual
  • Smoke and Heat Detection: Optical Point Smoke Detection, Ionisation, Beam Detection, Aspirated Smoke Detection, CCTV Smoke Detection, Point Heat Detection; Rate of Rise, Fixed, Rate Compensated, Fusible Loop, Fire Wire
  • Gas Detection: Catalytic Bead, Toxic Gas Detection; Semi-Conductor Sensor Point, Electrochemical Cell, Open Path Laser, IR Gas Detection; Open Path and Point IR, Ultrasonic Gas Detection.

Hazard Analysis

  • Considerations for Fire and Gas Hazards and applying hazard grades
  • Analysis of local hazards and subsequent detector locations

What people have said about the course:

“The practical demonstrations of flame detection depicting the strengths and limitations of all of the technologies on the market will allow me to use a more informed approach when designing a system”

“Very useful and practical advice was provided throughout the course.”

“Well tailored training course with frequent references to engineering technical practices. This helped me better understand the thinking behind some of the requirements and how to apply them in practice.”

“As a new graduate it was pretty much all useful to me, but particularly useful were : – Overviews of the detectors and their limitations and how engineering technical practices are applied.”
