With new gas infrastructure being installed across Australia, it’s now time to learn how to safely use the new technology to check if you’re at risk of natural gas leakage.
Key points:Gas leaks are the biggest threat to human health in Australia, but not the only threatThe robot, developed by an Australian company, can monitor gas leaks for up to six monthsGas leaks can be caused by a range of factors including:Poor ventilation and heat control, improper installation of valves, inadequate ventilation, poor insulation, faulty or improperly sealed or bolted insulation, inadequate cooling or power supplies, improper wiring, and failure of other systemsGas leaks from gas pipes are the most common cause of health problems in Australia.
According to the National Health and Medical Research Council, there are more than 2,500 natural gas leak incidents each year in Australia and about one million incidents occur every year.
The gas-assisted detection system developed by the Australian gas company Alcoa has been tested on a number of people and has shown a good response rate.
However, experts say the system does not have enough data to be a reliable way to monitor the situation, and can’t be relied on for detection of all leaks.
“The system is a good thing, but it’s not enough.
It doesn’t tell us the true level of risk,” said Dr Simon Poulin, an expert in public health and toxicology at the Australian National University.”
We’re trying to understand what the true risk is, so that we can be better informed about what to do.”
Alcoa is one of the world’s largest gas producers and has more than 10,000 gas stations across the country.
In its first two years of operation, the company has been testing and monitoring the gas leak detection system on the community, with the aim of ensuring that it is working correctly.
Alcoas chief operating officer Dr Paul Eger said the company was keen to learn more about the system, and wanted to provide some advice on how to properly use it.
“Alco’s been testing it on people for about two years now and we’ve got an understanding of how it works,” he said.
“It’s just a matter of getting that information to the public so that they can decide whether it’s a good use of their money.”
And so we’re really looking at it as an opportunity to really understand what we can do to improve the technology in the future.
“The system works by recording the amount of gas that leaks out of the pipe at a given time.
Alcoas is also able to measure how much the system is being used, which means that when there is a leak, it can be used to help people identify the cause of the problem.
Dr Eger says that in its first year, the gas-detection system had a response rate of 80 per cent.”
Our response rate is pretty high, but I think the most important thing is we’re using the system correctly,” he added.
Dr Pouin said that in the first few months, the system was not performing as well as it should.”
When you have a leak you need to take measures to protect yourself and your family,” he explained.”
I think that’s the biggest risk in the sense that it’s going to be quite difficult for you to be able to get out of there.
“But then there’s the risk of the system failing and not being able to detect a leak at all.”
You’re really only able to make a small fraction of the information about the level of pressure you’re in and the level you’re venting out, so you need a lot of practice to make sure you’re doing everything you need.
“Gas detection can also be a good way to prevent natural gas spills.
Dr Michael Poulter, a former director of the Australian Institute of Chemical Engineers, said the gas detector is a great way to protect the community and ensure that residents are protected from a leak.”
There’s not really any good reason to be using gas detectors,” he told News.au.”
They’re not reliable and they don’t work well.””
I don’t think that people realise that the gas sensor you put in your house is actually not that accurate.
“In some areas, the sensor is not even working, and it’s basically just an electronic display.”
“In terms of the health of the population, it doesn’t really do us any good.”
Dr Poulters concerns about the gas system and safety are shared by many others, including the former Australian Water and Wastewater Association chief executive Peter McBride.
“A lot of people think, ‘Well, it might be a bit of fun to use the gas sensors,’ but it really doesn’t do much of anything,” he remarked.
“If you have an open leak, the pressure will rise to an unsafe level, and the sensor won’t be able be used.”
