Fire and Gas System
This course has been designed to provide participants with an understanding of the operation and basic hardware associated with fire and gas systems. The attributes and characteristics of toxic gasses and how they behave when they are released in an uncontrolled manner will be covered.
Participants will gain a basic understanding on the use of the fire and gas system. They will also be exposed to the structure of the system and how each part is connected to protect the plant and personnel.
Upon completion of this course participants will have a better understanding of how the system is programmed and how signals are generated to trigger shutdown action. Display systems will also be discussed.
Fire and Gas Hardware
- Hazards and hardware
- Alarm indication
- Distributed control system
- Final control elements
Participants will be exposed to the basic principles of a typical fire and gas system and the characteristics of the gasses that will trigger the sensors on day one of the course. Fire and gas hardware consisting of sensors, alarm systems, graphic display systems, and control logic to operate final control elements that mitigate or eliminate the hazard will also be covered on this day.
Fire and Gas Operation
- Testing and maintenance
- Confirmed fire an gas
- Combined Safety System (CSS)
- Cause and effect drawings
- Local VDU panel and F&G P&IDs
On day two, the participants will become familiar with the operation, testing, and documentation involved when using the fire and gas system. They will learn the connection between the fire and gas and emergency shutdown systems. In order to become familiar with the fire and gas system, participants must become familiar with cause and effects and P&IDs.
This course is mainly targeted to process operators, process technicians, and laboratory and maintenance personnel. The course can also be applicable to employees working with equipment and materials purchasing, equipment procurement, job planning, and immediate supervisors to working technicians.
Participants should have some recent exposure to fire and gas system terminology in the oil and gas industry.
