Rajju Shroff, founder of UEPL, described that the company was set up with a plan to develop phosphine detection devices and extend the technology to other gases. Currently, UEPL manufactures more than 300 different types of tubes to detect various hazardous gases and vapours.

“Our company has succeeded by doing things differently, with a focus on research and development of new innovative solutions to help protect the safety of our customers and the environment,” said Shroff.

He also added that the professional team of R&D scientists and engineers at UEPL aim to develop products that meet current and future needs of the industries.

UEPL is the only manufacturer of two types of gas detection tubes, which are also the two most popular tubes used world-wide. UEPL provides its own proprietary Uniphos tubes in addition to the KwikDraw brand which was acquired from MSA Auer in 2014.

The original Uniphos tubes are five millimetre and used on a precision ASP-40 piston hand pump while the KwikDraw tubes are sevem millimetre and used on a bellows style pump.

“Both of these types of tubes are equally effective in industries ranging from large chemical and petro-chemical industries, oil refineries, government establishments, fumigators and many others,” Shroff added.

In its efforts to diversify and meet the evolving needs of customers, UEPL has developed a new KwikSense digital gas transmitter. This is a field mountable device suitable for the detection and continuous monitoring of hazardous gases at industrial locations like cylinder storage yards, chemical and fertiliser plants, oil and gas sites, steel industries or pharmaceutical plants.

Housed in an explosion proof wall mountable enclosure, the transmitter has been designed with an aim to use advanced micro-controller and non-volatile memory devices, thus allowing enhanced diagnostics and fault analysis.

The smart sensor technology provides hot swappability of any sensor available, which makes this unit a universal transmitter. The KwikSense transmitter is available for a wide range of toxic and flammable gases including many exotic gases. Other features include non-intrusive calibration, three fully configurable relays, digital MODBUS and Analog 4-20 mA outputs, sensor life indicator, bump test mode and counter.

“We believe the continued innovation of these types of technologies will keep UEPL at the forefront of the gas detection industry,” concluded Shroff.
