Global drinks manufacturer, AG Barr, commissions ATi
AG Barr, a leading soft drinks company has commissioned the design and installation of a bespoke ATi gas monitoring solution for Carbon Dioxide and Oxygen.
ATi’s Innovation Hub worked closely with the global business to provide a tailored, smart gas detection system, utilising our GasSens control panel with multiple gas heads, to provide industry-leading measurement and logging for hazardous-area sensing.
The ATi controller is configured to monitor CO2 and Oxygen levels using our D12IR-Ex and F12 gas detectors, protecting operators from harmful levels during the bottling process for cans and bottles. The specialised configuration enables alerts to be sent to the operator when pre-determined levels are exceeded, while safely shutting down the system and locking the doors of the room to prevent unauthorised access, preventing harmful exposure.
Each gas sensor continuously monitors the atmosphere at the soft drinks production sites, reporting any hazardous conditions to the control unit for display by the alpha numeric screen, indicating the reporting sensor, gas type, concentration and alarm status. Alarm levels that are exceeded automatically activate signal outputs, including analogue and digital data and user selectable relays.
This ATi GasSens controller system operates on a 6-core cable network and has the capacity to monitor up to 14 addressable sensors. The bespoke monitoring solution features heated sensor holders to help with the damp location, along with splash and water guards for cleaning. The flexible system also allows the client to have full control of the network, tailored for the needs of their application, with automatic safety check diagnostics and system surveillance for complete peace of mind.
The ATi GasSens controller is capable of measuring over 60 different gases or vapours and was supplied ready to use with pre-calibrated gas sensors.
