With an existing ‘gas library’ of over 70 species, the Duvas sensor can be tailored to detect numerous chemicals. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has purchased the Duvas sensor system to use in their mobile measurement test facility to monitor for leaks around refineries and thus forewarn that action needs to be taken to prevent leakage of potential toxic substances. The unit was deployed on a vehicle driving around the perimeter of major refineries to identify hazardous chemicals such as Benzene. This method of deployment enables a far greater area to be covered more rapidly than with multiple traditional sensors.
