Each year, a couple of hundred fires aboard merchant ships are registered, the majority occurring from leaks in the engine room. Some fires result in loss of lives, while others “only” means high costs for repairs and losses related to deriving logistic issues.
The electronics in the detector combines and analyzes the content of both the oil sprays and gasses, which are detected by a sudden increase of collected oil or by the electronic gas sensor.
No other solution on the market combines these two detection methods, or even using our patented technique as an indicator of fire and explosion risk.
Moreover, the large air flow is a much quicker indicator of potential risk than previously seen in other detection systems using i.e. light scatter.
The LAS-10 will help stop a fire before it starts providing security and a safe environment to the crew and passengers aboard. The LAS-10 is developed in close cooperation with A. P. Møller-Mærsk and has been tested and validated at the Technological Institute, Denmark. Daspos A/S launched the innovative idea behind LAS-10 and was nominated to “Enterpreneur of the year”, 2012. To develop LAS-10 Daspos A/S received financial support from The Danish Maritime Fund.
