Detecting for Exposure on Vessels Conducting Area Monitoring Operations

For ships deployed to monitor large open areas of ocean for air contamination resulting from an oil spill, a connected and wireless gas detection system can be employed to continuously monitor for VOC (volatile organic compound) exposure levels.

Deployed on both port and starboard sides of a ship – in bow and stern locations – these wireless gas monitors can detect for atmospheric contamination from the deck of a moving vessel from the detectors’ sensors. Data can be relayed wirelessly to a central collection location, and results can be compared and tracked from other ships over extended periods of time.

Recommended RAE Systems Gas Detectors

For wide-area monitoring of hazardous gases, the wireless AreaRAE network is suggested. AreaRAE Steel monitors can be affixed at multiple locations, and as they monitor they can wirelessly transmit data continuously to a Ruggedized Host Controller base station established at a central location such as the ship’s bridge. By employing this type of system, there are no “blind spots” on the vessel, and using optional GPS on AreaRAE Steel monitors, location data is captured in addition to information about the air quality. AreaRAE Steel monitors employ rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries, as well as alkaline battery packs, which can be quickly exchanged to ensure uninterrupted runtime for days, plus they can continuously monitor during transfer from ship to ship.

In confined spaces such as shipholds, where toxic and explosive gases can accumulate and build up, and where oxygen levels can decrease to life-threateningly low levels, a MultiRAE Plus provides monitoring for explosivity, oxygen levels, and VOCs.
