Groveley system installed.

A gas storage facility in Germany is the first site to install Groveley Detection's new remotely-operated gas detection aspirator system. Designers at hazard detection specialist Groveley developed the system to monitor potential methane gas leaks at a regeneration gas-fired heater, which dries gas that has been stored in underground storage caverns before being fed into the main grid. Managing director Robert Bennet said: "Remote operation from a control room means personnel can avoid going into the hazardous area during operation, which can reach temperatures of 800AC. "It also allows the system to be used intermittently -- only when the heater is in operation -- and to automate the system's line purge to clean the sample line with compressed air." The aspirator incorporates Simtronics GD-10P gas detectors.
