Tiger detectors used as part of Chinese metro security
ION Science provide 30 handheld PIDs to Harbin Metro Group Ltd which are being used to check passengers’ luggage and bags during security screening.
Harbin Metro, the first Chinese underground rapid transit system, is expected to ease traffic congestion in Harbin, the capital city of Heilongjiang province.
The metro system will be expanded to five lines, covering a total length of 143km by 2020.
The driver-less metro train can accommodate up to 1,888 passengers at a time and run at a maximum speed of 80km/h and an average speed of 35km/h.
Each train is installed with two high-powered air conditioning systems to ensure the mild temperature during winters. Electric heaters are installed in the seats to keep passengers warm, despite the outside cold.
Further demonstrating the flexibility of its advanced gas monitoring instrumentation, ION Science has recently supplied 30 Tiger Photoionisation Detectors (PIDs) to Harbin Metro Group Ltd. Purchased via distributor, ChuWah, the well proven Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) monitors are being used as part of a security and anti-terrorism screening process to check passengers’ luggage and bags.
“The need to introduce new security measures led Harbin Metro Group to choose a significant amount of Ion Science Tiger VOC detectors. These are being used for monitoring passengers, luggage and bags during security screening.”
