Gastronics Fixed Instrument Skid

The Gastronics Fixed Instrument Skid (FIS) provides real-time gas measurement for ammonia (NH3), total volatile organic compounds (VOC), nitrous oxide (N2O) and directional wind data. The system is specifically designed for long-term outside use and includes optional alarm signals, solar/battery power and wireless data transmission. The wind information measured by the units will be used to understand dispersion of chemical vapors and improve the accuracy of dispersion models. This data, along with other DRI instrument data, will be transmitted to the VMD data collection/management system, i.e. TFMCS and SAFER Systems.


In the pilot-scale demonstration, 25 units are deployed in and around potential vapor-release points in the A and AP tank farms to detect chemical vapors.
