  • Oil mist detection brings peace of mind in hazardous areas

    Oil mist detectors are an important piece of hazardous area equipment in their own right, but can also provide peace of mind about the explosion risks in hazardous areas such as engine rooms, platform legs and gas turbine enclosures. The HSE has published a new report into testing oil mist detectors, in order to assess their performance and whether their accuracy has degraded over time. "Oil mist detection with appropriate emergency response is identified as a significant risk mitigation," the HSE states. "However, there are gaps in the knowledge as to how to effectively locate, maintain and operate OMDs in different environments." Testing using isokinetic gravimetric samplers is one option, based on international standards, to provide a measurement of airborne mist and spray concentration against which the response of the OMD itself can be compared. "It is a fundamental method and not affected by changes in the physical properties of the droplets, taking around 1-10 minutes to carry out the measurement," the report adds. The study sheds interesting light on how hazardous area equipment can be tested on an ongoing basis, to ensure that it continues to provide the full level of safety for which it was originally installed.

  • Surge protection can help achieve rail safety aims

    The aims and ambitions of the Office of Rail and Road, which safeguards passengers and employees on the rail network, can be supported with good use of surge protection and other hazard-reducing electrical equipment. A newly launched consultation by the ORR is calling for all views relating to its safety remit, which encompasses not only the standard passenger railways of the UK, but also high-speed lines like HS1 and city metro and supertram services. The ORR holds Network Rail to account and aims for a reliable and punctual rail service too, as well as encouraging competition in the rail sector and giving freight operators fair access to rail routes. All of this together means a wide range of different people who are potentially at risk - from members of the public to freight operators, as well as those working in the rail industry itself. The ORR aims for zero fatalities to rail workers, or to members of the public caused by the industry's operations, as well as reduced injuries and other safety incidents. Surge protection equipment such as that exhibited at Railtex 2015 by Weidmuller back in May is just one way to help in this aim, by reducing the risks posed by the high voltages typically in use on the railways.
