Gas detection - Bertin Instruments

Gas detection

Explosive or toxic gases are a constant threat to industry as well as civil and military security. Second Sight is an innovative instrument to protect infrastructures and population based on an early warning system.

Bertin Instruments initially developed the gas detection system Second Sight for early warning and real-time visualization of suspicious clouds. This ruggedized instrument based on an infrared (IR) gas cloud detector is dedicated to chemical area surveillance in open field and harsh conditions but has also been adapted to industrial safety.

Explosive gas leaks are an immediate threat in refineries. Leaks may accumulate into dangerous clouds that can ignite when they reach a certain concentration. Current leak detection methods deploy point detectors at various locations in the refinery that measure specific chemicals. When a single explosive accident can cost billions, Bertin Instruments is offering, thanks to Second Sight equipment, a full scene coverage gas cloud tracking system that adds another layer of safety.
