In a positive pressure habitat, the overpressure is used to prevent ingress of potentially explosive substances and gases during Hot work, such as welding, grinding, cutting, sandblasting in hazardous areas. This allows the execution of hot work during regular operation of oil and gas related installations and plants. StS gruppen has developed the Flexi Habitat System which can be delivered in three different setup layouts and which is scalable according to the customers' specific requirements.
In order to accommodate a variety of purposes and customer requirements, StS gruppen has developed three different standard designs for its habitat system.
This configuration of StS Gruppen's Flexi Habitat system has been the first system to offer the patented automatic shutdown system developed by the company.
Besides the automatic shutdown system controlled by the central unit, the system is equipped with two emergency stops.
In this second setup design, StS gruppen has cut the system down to its core functionality. Due to advanced modifications, the fan can take over the shutdown control as the gas detector is integrated into the fan. This setup is a failsafe system designed for smaller operations.
This newly developed setup is specifically designed to offer additional functions, e.g. for the simultaneous operation of multiple habitats.
Living up to highest safety requirements, StS Gruppen's Generation 3 Flexi Habitat System is equipped with a completely re-designed control system for up to 4 habitats.
