A liquid explosive detector systems approved by the UK Department for Transport for use in aviation security.

A liquid explosive is easy to pass off as something harmless. The Kromek liquid explosive detector makes it easy to screen any liquid while keeping the packaging and the bottle intact and sealed.

ECAC approved to the highest European performance standard, Type B Standard 3, the Kromek Identifier liquid explosive detector is an easy to use, fast, reliable and cost-effective system for screening liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) in all types of containers presented at airport transit and any other central checkpoints.

The Identifier liquid explosive detector is specifically configured to identify the presence of hazardous liquids (explosives, precursors and component parts), aerosols and gels in sealed containers between 80ml and 2000ml. Threats are measured against a secure, customer-specified database, which can be easily upgraded as new threats emerge.

The system was developed to meet the specific challenges for the aviation security market and ports of entry and exit to identify the presence of hazardous materials within containers. The Identifier can also be used for specific threat screening for facilities, buildings, perimeters and events.

See the Identifier in action

“It is a reliable machine, there have been no negatives to its use. We still have the dip-kits as a back-up but looking back on the way we used to do things before the Kromek Identifier it seems very old-fashioned now, it was like going to a New World. Passengers realise the need to do this testing but that doesn’t stop some complaints about the inconvenience. It certainly helps that the Identifier is so quick and non-invasive.”
