Currently 80% of all mining accidents occurring in China are caused by gas explosions. In an effort to improve safety and reduce accidents the Chinese government has started investment to improve and extend gas testing in coal mines. The Fushun Branch of CCRI, which is located close to Shen Yang in Liao Ning Province, conducted extensive testing in both the laboratory and coal mines before selecting City Technology’s MICROpeL®75M combustible gas sensor for use in their fixed point gas detection systems.

 

Dr Eric Tan, City’s Business Development Manager for the Far East and Asia, said “We are very pleased that the Fushun Branch of CCRI has chosen the MICROpeL®75M for use in China’s coal mines. This sensor has been developed specially for use in mining and is already being used in mines in Europe and South Africa.”

 

Wang Jian Guo, President of the Fushun Branch of CCRI commented, “Our cooperation with City Technology is the beginning of a time of change for coal mine safety equipment in China that will contribute greatly to improved safety in our mines.”

 

City Technology has been supplying a wide range of gas sensors to Chinese customers for more than 10 years. To meet the ever-growing needs of current and future customers City Technology opened a Representative Office in Shanghai in May 2004.
