Automated 24/7 monitoring
scanfeld® is the world's first early warning solution for comprehensive monitoring of entire chemical parks. Wherever gas accumulates, scanfeld® identifies, localizes and images the gas cloud. Completely automated, around the clock.
Conventional sensors work like the sense of smell, which can only pick up a signal if they are directly where the gas is. In most cases, however, it is not clear where the invisible gas accumulates. The result: Over one third of major gas releases are not detected by traditional gas sensors.
The scanfeld® early warning system uses remote sensing, or measurement at a distance. It works more like a watchtower. Even large areas with production and storage facilities can be monitored remotely for hundreds of compounds, 24/7, up to several kilometers away, and in any altitude profile, with no calibration needed. Gas distribution and propagation direction is made visible in real time. The system reacts to a wide concentration range – from single-digit ppm to double-digit percentage values, which helps distinguish safety related events from technical emissions.
