FastCalGas™ FAQ’s

Please see below the most common questions we’re asked about the FastCalGas™ from our customers. If you need to know anymore, then please get in touch with our friendly team using the form below.

What should you be testing for?

Instrument configuration is based on the tank and vessel type. The three main considerations are usually:

  1. Monitor for sufficient oxygen
  2. Monitor for explosive gases
  3. Monitor for toxic gases

Oxygen and explosive gases are easily determined as necessary to monitor, but deciding which toxic gases to monitor depends on the tank and vessel type.

Where do you need to test?

  • Cargo Tanks – Cargo tanks can carry a wide variety of liquids depending on the vessels IMO classification.
  • Water Tanks – Entry into the vessels water tanks requires at least an O2 sensor.
  • Ballast Tanks – Ballast tanks can contain anything from seawater to rotten fish. They should be tested for LEL, O2 and H2S and Chlorine.
  • Fuel Tanks – Entry into the fuel tanks requires a gas monitor with at least LEL and O2 sensors.

Testing on different types of vessels

Container Vessels
These vessels require the standard LEL and O2 sensors to clean, repair and inspect the fuel and ballast tanks. There are fumigants (methyl bromide), coolants (ammonia) and many additional applications on board container vessels that require a monitor capable of monitoring both the basics (LEL, O2, and H2S) and a broad range of chemicals (PID).

Chemical Tankers
Chemical tankers are usually configured with O2, LEL, H2S, and PID with a pump. It is used for tank inspections and as a deck monitor during the loading and unloading of chemical products.

Bulk Cargo Carriers
Bulk cargo carriers will usually require O2, LEL and H2S, plus any additional tests specific to the cargo being carried.

Ferries (RoRo Vessels)
RoRo vessels and ferries use monitors configured with O2, LEL and CO with a pump. An additional area of concern is the importance of NO from diesel-driven vehicles.
