Dispersion Modeling Assessment for Positioning of Hydrocarbon Detection System

Emerson Automation Solutions awarded to carry out Fire and Gas Mapping Study for Dumad Depot at Indian Oil Corporation Limited, Dumad, Gujarat.


The scope of work includes following activities for Fire and Gas Mapping study for Dumad Depot.

  1. The LMW and HMW handling tank and its associated areas in the Dumad Depot is covered for the Fire and Gas Mapping Study.
  2. The dispersion pattern from the software (Phast8.22) was analysed to identify the location and mounting height of the detectors. Further, an overall Gas detection layout plan was provided using the 3D modelling software for the dispersion study.
  3. The F&G Study suggests the location, type and number of detectors that needs to be installed across various areas.
