Blackline Revolutionizes Confined Space Entry

World’s first cellular-connected gas detector with integrated pump changes gas monitoring

At the 27th World Gas Conference 2018, Blackline Safety Corp. (TSXV: BLN) announced a new multi-gas cartridge with built-in pump to monitor atmospheric hazards when entering confined spaces and performing leak checks. With keynote presentations by global energy company CEOs and Energy Ministers, the World Gas Conference welcomes 12,000 participants from over 100 countries every three years.

“Around the world, thousands of employees enter confined spaces every day, including sewers, tanks, silos, storage bins and underground vaults,” said Glen Silver, Director of Sales, North America at Blackline Safety. “Confined space entry is a high-risk, heavily regulated activity. Using our G7 Insight package with G7c detector, pump cartridge and online data analytics software, businesses will know which personnel are entering confined spaces, what spaces are being entered, the time spent inside and whether gases were encountered.”

Blackline’s G7c is the world’s first and only connected gas detector with plug-and-play gas sensor cartridges. Shipping in the fourth quarter of this year, all G7c detectors can be equipped with the new multi-gas pump cartridge for use during confined space entries and leak checks. Blackline offers customers a lifetime warranty for all gas sensors and pumps — should a sensor fail testing or calibration, or if a pump stops working — cartridges are easily replaced in seconds with no downtime and at no additional cost to the user.

Mr. Silver added, “Businesses routinely perform leak check surveys but data collection and documentation is a manual process. With G7c and our new pump cartridge, all gas samples are automatically uploaded to the Blackline Safety Network, driving our data analytics software. If any leaks are found, businesses will know where they are and can plan proactive maintenance to reduce emissions and prevent issues from becoming worse over time.”

Blackline’s new multi-gas pump cartridge is part of the award-winning G7 connected safety portfolio that delivers leading wireless gas detection, real-time compliance, business analytics and productivity-improvement within a single, wearable device. G7 solutions are supported by industrial-grade, cloud-hosted software and services that support a range of options including a broad line of gas sensors, proprietary indoor location technology, real-time alerting to a live monitoring team, emergency response management, mass notifications, two-way voice calling and satellite connectivity.

The World Gas Conference features over 40,000 square feet of exhibition space with over 350 exhibitors. Blackline Safety is showcasing G7c and its new pump cartridge for confined space monitoring and leak checks at booth number 1555.
