MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2010) -  Sierra Monitor Corporation (OTCBB: SRMC), a Cleantech focused company that designs, manufactures and sells electronic safety and environmental instrumentation, announced that it has shipped its first order of life safety gas and flame monitoring equipment for use by the Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO).
