Compact control panel
05 June 2013
Like the existing Vortex FP, the FP Compact is designed to monitor toxic and flammable gas detectors or fire detectors where there is a need for the control system to be installed in Atex Zone 1 and 2 hazardous areas.
Its more compact size, however, means it is suited to confined spaces such as analyser shelters in refineries, offshore rigs or FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading) installations.
Operations can be performed without opening the panel’s enclosure and gas levels, alarms and faults are viewed at a glance through a window.
This means the system can be checked without a ‘hot work’ permit being required, and so adjacent areas can remain online, saving time and money.
