New Technology Increases Safety for Confined Space Entry

Stay Safe by using remote visual inspection equipment and inspect from outside the space.

Keep safe by using redundant secondary atmospheric tests to ensure a safe entry, when an entry is necessary.

Tanker Inspection System

The Tanker Inspection System enables an individual to make a safe visual assessment of interior conditions, in dangerous and often inaccessible areas using detailed video images.

All areas of a tanker trailer or rail tanker can be safely viewed without the need for inspectors to make a confined space entry. The use of remote video inspection systems can play a role in reducing, and in some cases, eliminating the need for a worker to enter into a confined space, while conducting repair and/or maintenance operations.

SafeAirLADDER

This ladder system was designed to keep confined space entrants safe by performing a redundant secondary atmospheric test. The SafeAirLADDER will monitor and report environmental conditions prior to an individual making a confined space entry to both the on-location individual and off-location supervisory staff. This intelligent ladder integrates gas metering electronics and alarm annunciation that is used to facilitate entry into a space.

ASSE 2018 Tradeshow

Join us at ASSE 2018

Come visit us at ASSE 2018, Booth #434 for a look at some of our NEW confined space safety products. The show is being held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center located at 900 E Market Street in San Antonio, Texas. Once you arrive at our booth, you will have the opportunity to demo our SafeAir LadderTM and Confined Space Inspection Camera System.

Confined Space Inspection System 

The best way to avoid hazards and the related expense of a confined space entry is to avoid the entry in the first place. The Confined Space Inspection System is designed just for this purpose. Instead of sending a person into the confined space, the system sits on top of the manway and the camera is lowered inside. The range of motion and 40x optical zoom functionality of the system allows for a thorough inspection of the entire interior. The system also includes our WalkAbout DVR which permits video and still images to be recorded.

SafeAir Ladder SystemTM (Patent Pending)

If you must enter a confined space use our SafeAir LadderTM to ensure a safe entry. The SafeAir LadderTM is designed to perform a secondary test as well as monitor and report environmental conditions inside of a confined space prior to an individual making an entry.

A gas metering sensor is mounted to the base of the ladder and is designed to be inserted into a confined space. The top of the ladder mounts onto the manway and has an integrated alarm console, which remains outside the space. The console offers a visual (Red LED – Hazardous Environment, Yellow LED – indeterminate state or malfunction, Green LED – Environment Safe) and audible indication of atmospheric conditions as communicated from the metering sensor at the base of the ladder. When activated and inserted into a confined space the ladder can alert a worker prior to entry, (and management), that the atmosphere inside of the space is or is not suitable to sustain human life.

The Dual View Under Door Camera

The Zistos Dual View Under Door Camera is designed to provide visual information of an otherwise unviewable situation or environment – from underneath the door.  Its applications consist of hostage-barricade scenarios, dynamic entries, clearing a building’s interior, and many more. It can be an invaluable tool for a tactical team.

This system consists of a uniquely designed dual sensor camera that generates a video image, under low light conditions, when inserted into the small slot underneath a closed door.

The camera contains two low light sensors with invisible IR illuminators in its 5 mm thick tongue. One sensor points forward, the other points upwards.  The forward looking sensor lets you see into the interior of the room, while the upward looking sensor allows you to see back at the inside of the door and door frame.  Looking back at the inside of the door allows you to see barricades, booby traps, trip wires and other potentially deadly devices before entering the room.  The display image is toggled from the forward sensor or the upward sensor by adjusting the illumination control knob on the display unit.

The Dual View Under Door Camera is also equipped with a built-in audio listening device with advanced signal processing that makes it easier to hear subtle audio information and reduces the loud sounds and background noise.

The double hinged pole allows a tactical team member to insert the camera and pan the room while away from the door frame and outside of the fatal funnel.

Like many of our systems, this camera uses a safe and secure wired design and the camera images are viewed on our portable battery powered WalkAbout monitor. This means that sensitive video images cannot be viewed by unauthorized third parties as is the case with many wireless systems. The monitor is very rugged, shock and weather resistant, and features a bright display that offers the highest resolution for its size.

The Zistos Under Door camera is a valuable tool that can provide video intelligence that can help ensure success in a tactical mission. This camera is fully compatible with the other tactical surveillance tools manufactured by Zistos, such as our articulating and telescoping pole cameras, our IR zoom pole cameras, thermal pole cameras, videoscopes, and even our through the wall camera.

It rounds out a suite of tools that are interchangeable and allow a team to increase their real time situational awareness so that they have a better chance of accomplishing their mission goals in a safe and effective manner.

Saving Money Through Safety Makes Sound Economic Sense

Zistos Industrial Inspection products increase the safety and efficiency of performing any inspection.

Zistos industrial inspection video camera systems are purpose-built to allow users to inspect elevated locations and confined spaces, safely out of harm’s way. They include two main primary capabilities:

Extended Reach Pole video camera systems can be telescoped to 20, 30 or 40 feet to allow the operator to remain safely on the ground without a ladder.

Confined Space Inspection cameras allow inspection of tanks, vaults, hoppers and other confined spaces while safely performing the operation outside them. Lightweight, durable and all weather, the system is ready to go in minutes. Continue reading “Saving Money Through Safety Makes Sound Economic Sense”
