Uniphos KwikSense Smart Digital Gas Transmitter detects toxic and flammable gases

KwikSense 1The international shipping industry is responsible for about 90 per cent of world trade, and something that is always top of mind is safety in the marine environment

That includes ensuring safe passage of ships to ports, but also the safety of personnel on board the vessels.

Shipping containers are used to globally transport materials and products including grain, crude and other commercial goods. They are typically 20 or 40 feet in length, and depending upon the cargo, may contain a number of toxic gases and vapours.

Other threats include lack of oxygen and risk of explosion from flammable gases and vapours. Cargo and ballast tanks, hulls and holds are a few of the examples of these potentially dangerous confined spaces.

This is why it is imperative to ensure that these confined spaces are tested for toxic gases and vapours before any exposure occurs to personnel who may be required to enter these areas.

The Uniphos KwikSense Smart Digital Gas Transmitter is a universal gas transmitter capable of detecting a wide range of toxic and flammable gases that may be present in marine environments.

It is a field mounted device which is compatible with all Uniphos Smart Gas Sensors and is suitable for the detection and continuous monitoring of hazardous gas leaks on marine tankers, cargo tanks, ballast tanks and container vessels. The groundbreaking Smart Sensor Technology, with Transportable Calibration, allows quick sensor changes with pre-calibrated gas sensors, saving time and money during quick vessel turnarounds.

There are a number of industries and users who would benefit from the KwikSense Smart Digital Gas Transmitter including:

-Shipping operators

-Ferry operators


-Offshore oil rigs

-Shipyard repair and manufacturers

-Marine chemists

-Coast Guards

-Lifeboat and fibreglass boat manufacturers

The KwikSense Smart Digital Gas Transmitter has numerous international certifications including ATEX, IECEx, MED and SIL2.

Additional features include:

-Digital Communication on MODBUS over RS 485

-Industry Standard 4-20mA analogue output

-3 x configurable on-board potential-free relay contacts

-Pre-Calibrated Smart Sensor capable of swapping between any sensor technology

-Non-intrusive calibration with a magnetic wand
