The Second Sight® gas detector identifies the gases that are registered into its database. In the case of the Ammonia (NH3), the calibration was first realized in laboratory conditions. In order to validate the identification of this gas, INERIS supports Bertin Technologies engineers to manipulate safely this gas outdoor and realize a test in real conditions with adapted devices.
The Second Sight® detects and identifies the gas releases of Ammonia from 25m to 110m and with a quantity from 5g to 5kg. The detection sensitivity is higher for the gaseous form compared to the biphasic form.
