Det-Tronics fire & gas detection/releasing system gets U.S. Coast Guard and Lloyd’s Marine approvals
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Detector Electronics Corporation (Det-Tronics) has announced that its Eagle Quantum Premier (EQP) system has received Type-Approval from the United States Coast Guard (USCG) and from Lloyd’s Register. Det-Tronics manufactures flame detectors, gas detectors and safety systems and is part of UTC Fire & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
Approval by the U.S. Coast Guard is required for flame and gas detection systems (including control panel, flame detectors, gas detectors, and accessories) in use where the USCG has jurisdiction – for example, in U.S. flagged vessels or vessels operating in U.S. waters.
The U.S. Coast Guard certificate was awarded after rigorous Factory Mutual Approvals (FM) witness testing proved the system and components meet the stringent USCG performance criteria. The products were verified to meet the U.S. Coast Guard's environmental requirements as described in 46 CFR 161.002.
Obtaining the meticulous Lloyd's Register of Shipping approval further verifies that the flame and gas detection system meets its specified performance requirements and is acceptable for operational use.
"We are pleased to obtain certification from these respected organizations," says Simon Pate, Director of Projects and Systems at Det-Tronics. "The hundreds of offshore sites and floating platforms that we currently serve worldwide can be assured of their wise choice for safety."
