Oil refineries, petrochemical plants, LPG plants, offshore platforms and chemical plants all utilize or produce a wide range of hazardous gases including combustible gases and toxic gases. In addition, the processes could produce non-toxic gases which, when accumulated in confined spaces, could deplete the oxygen in the room causing a hazardous oxygen deficient condition dangerous to individuals entering the area without proper protection.
Where the hazardous conditions are the greatest, it is necessary to have a plant-wide monitoring system that can constantly monitor the conditions even if humans are not presently in the area. Personal gas monitors cannot detect build-up of combustible gases in a non-occupied area that could cause a hazard to the facility. Depletion of oxygen would be hazardous to individuals entering the unoccupied area, and even small amounts of toxic gases can cause serious injury or death to workers entering an unoccupied area.
Having a means to provide an early warning systems for chemical, combustible threats which stem from leak is critical. That is why Acxodus exists. Bringing breaking ground technologies, helping industries to bring detection to a new level, so that they can focus on what they do best in their business.
