CONCEPT OF OFFSHORE PLATFORM FIRE DETECTION
Recent tests conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Coast Guard have shown that ultraviolet (UV) detection equipment provides the rapid response to the occurrence of fire that is essential in high-hazard areas such as offshore oil-production platforms. The performance and reliability of UV detectors have been improved by the development of the "optical integrity" system which is here described. The system incorporates special features and circuitry to eliminate the problems of false responses and loss of sensitivity due to smoke.
