BOTTLE LIQUID SCANNER
- Can easily scan clear, translucent and frosted unopened glass or plastic bottles
- Quick analysis time of 20 seconds
- Uses low energy powered laser <100mW
- Easy to understand results: Potential Threat / No Threat
The RespondeR Bottled Liquid Scanner (BLS) is a desktop system that can accurately distinguish threat liquids from benign liquids in unopened glass and plastic bottles, regardless if they are clear, translucent or frosted. The ability to screen liquids in sealed bottles reduces inspection time, increasing throughput while screening for potential threats. The RespondeR BLS utilizes field- and lab-proven Raman Spectroscopy technology, also in the RespondeR RCI used by emergency responders worldwide.
The RespondeR BLS features a touch screen display with a simple user interface. Bottles are placed inside a safety enclosure where its contents are scanned with a 785-nm near infrared laser source. The safety enclosure is designed to protect the operator and public from exposure to the laser.
The scan and analysis are completed within 20 seconds with results compared to the on-board threat library, which contains an assortment of different chemical substances that could be used in the creation of a homemade or liquid explosive device. The standard library can be easily modified as threats change.
If no threat is detected, the display reads “NO THREAT FOUND” in green and the next bottle can immediately be scanned. If a match is made to a chemical in the library, the display reads “POTENTIAL THREAT FOUND” in red. In this case, the operator can refer the person for additional screening and continue with his duties, or he can perform an optional secondary scan. The secondary scan is completed in less than two minutes and displays the name of the potential threat, which is vital for determining how to proceed with a confirmed threat substance or clearance of a nuisance alarm.
Alarms are stored on the internal computer and can be exported via USB memory device.
Applications include security checkpoints at airports, special events, high-profile facilities and at building entrances.
