Gas Monitoring


Underground gas monitoring presents its own unique set of challenges. This applies particularly to sites that rely on methane drainage to supplement traditional fan-based ventilation systems.  However, monitoring these vents can prove difficult, as they are often located in areas without an electrical power source nearby and as such may not be monitored regularly. Commonly, the first evidence that a methane drainage system may not be operating efficiently (or not operating at all) can be an increase in methane concentrations at a return air shaft - or worse - underground where the workforce is exposed to the risk of a methane explosion.
