CTI Detectors are Designed for Fishing Vessels
A fishing vessel is a huge, vulnerable, floating factory. Catching, cleaning and freezing fish is a wet, dangerous, and messy process. Extreme conditions such as these require accurate, reliable, and rugged gas detection equipment.CTI equipment stands up to extreme conditions and prevents false alarms. Our mission is to protect people and protect property by detecting and accurately measuring refrigerant leaks so that you can take quick, automatic, and appropriate action based on the level found.
Fishing vessels crews are especially vulnerable to every type of equipment failure including toxic gas leaks. When options are few, stakes are high, and crews are busy, emergency responses must be immediate and automatic. CTI detectors not only detect a leak, but measure the amount of gas in the leak and take the appropriate action automatically. Does a vent need to be opened? Done! Does an alarm need to be triggered? Done! Does the compressor need to be shut down? Done! Does a valve need to be closed? Done!
Fishing vessels have unique conditions that present significant challenges to gas detection efforts. CTI detectors handle them all!
Gas Detection Challenges on Fishing Vessels
Temperatures can swing from -50°F to +140° during a defrost procedure.
CTI detectors function well despite extreme temperature ranges. An onboard heater regulates the internal temperature of the detector and keeps the sensor cell accurate and functional.
Conditions are often wet, moist, and humid.
CTI detectors can handle water and are resistant to condensation and corrosion. All circuitry is completely encapsulated in a urethane compound that is impervious to moisture of any kind.
High pressure spray downs from sanitation crews are a common occurrence.
CTI detectors stand up to high pressure hose hits. Our sensor cells are protected and our enclosures repel and drain water quickly.
Gases produced by processes like proofing and ripening can interfere with detection.
CTI sensor cells specifically detect their target gas and do not false alarm in the presence of other gases.
A multitude of refrigerant gases are used.
CTI has detection equipment for all industrial refrigerant gases on the market today. We specialize in ammonia but have excellent detectors for other refrigerants such as carbon dioxide, R22, R404A, R134a, R507, and many others.
Regulatory Agencies such IIAR and OSHA have rules and standards that must be met.
CTI equipment meets all standards from IIAR and OSHA.
CTI sales engineers are trained to help you understand and apply IIAR and OSHA regulations regarding gas detection in your facility
