With over 40 years of experience in environmental services, we’ve seen it all. Lately, the focus has been on air quality and emissions.
Ever-changing standards, regulations, and an increase in public scrutiny of air quality and corporate transparency have made us more aware of the importance of not just monitoring, but quality. data and the timely delivery and dissemination of this essential information.
A better way
It used to be that monitoring was a straightforward proposition – fixed sensors in and around a facility, fence sensors at its perimeter, and data collection manually extracted, collated, analyzed, and distributed. This was a time-consuming process that limited the data collected to that obtained within and around the perimeter of a facility. We saw a better and faster way to solve this problem: our real-time platform.
By centralizing data monitoring and management, Real Time provides the most comprehensive, system-independent environmental intelligence platform available. It is both a customizable software and data aggregation tool for linking advanced analytics and reporting to continuous, real-time air monitoring – a true decision.
Why real time?
Real time means integrated services. Data is captured, recorded, analyzed and reported automatically. The result? Real-time change for you and your mission. Real-time, sensor-independent environmental monitoring, including:
- Incident Detection and Alerting: Instant notifications on incidents and contamination events with data collected from existing/emerging sensor technology
- Efficiency gains and centralized data storage: immediate impact with secure and centralized storage and backup
- Customizable dashboards: turn data into dynamic visuals in real time
- Quality Assurances: Complete solution systematizes LDAR, closeout, and security processes to meet regulations and compliance; automated data validation improves reporting
Critical Applications: Oil & Gas
An energy sector client hired us to provide air monitoring for the development and maintenance of a new facility and community monitoring network. We set up 10 local test sites and used our mobile monitoring truck to collect, analyze and make them available through a dedicated website and smartphone app.
This monitoring provides critical data to the public and helps monitor many VOCs. The public and organizational benefits of this capability are that it can send incident alerts, track events and hazards, improve awareness, and improve well-being.
Monitoring air quality affected by forest fires
Wildfire smoke poses risks to industrial operations and the employees who perform them. With the marked increase in wildfires on the West Coast, the U.S. Forest Service and California Division of Occupational Safety and Health have introduced regulations and standards to ensure worker safety from the effects of wildfire smoke. .
Real-time tracking provides data to compare against the Air Quality Index for particulates – giving you vital information on whether it is safe for your staff to be exposed to potential hazards, ensuring their safety and your compliance with exposure regulations.
