Case Study: Gas Detector Battery Life Excels During Plant Shutdown

Case Study: Gas Detector Battery Life Excels During Plant Shutdown Continuous operational processes at an industrial plant are typically shut down 5% or less per year, yet 70% of major accidents occur during non-routine (start-up, plant shutdown, or online maintenance) operations. [i] Why? The situation during a plant shutdown is completely different from a normal day.

Case Study: Easy Calibration Gas with Auto Replenish Plus

Case Study: Easy Calibration Gas with Auto Replenish Plus A leading gas and electric company, with operations across the Midwestern United States, started with a small sample of Industrial Scientific products and quickly expanded. Today, with 150 gas detection instruments across 28 sites, and a “bump test once a day, calibrate once a month” policy, the customer goes through a fair amount of calibration gas. With the implementation of Industrial Scientific’s iNet® Exchange program,... Read More

Case Study: Lone Worker Solutions & Safety Controls

Case Study: Lone Worker Solutions & Safety Controls A large oil and gas producer was in the market to outfit lone workers with new safety equipment at one of its operations in the western United States. Lone worker solutions have come a long way in taking full advantage of current technology. While lone worker solutions are important, they only make up a small portion of the PPE (personal protective equipment) market. Challenge The challenge was to determine the best lone... Read More

Area Monitor Rental – An Orphan Well Case Study

Area Monitor Rental – An Orphan Well Case Study The first successful use of a drilling rig on a well drilled especially to produce oil was made in 1859. One estimate suggests that since then, 3.5 million oil and gas wells have been drilled in North America. Because many wells were drilled before well permit regulations were introduced, this number may be even higher, reaching estimates of 4 million. Ideally, when a well reaches the end of its life cycle, it is properly... Read More
