Keeping travellers and staff safe
The Kromek Liquid Explosive Scanner is primarily used in airport check-in areas and other security screening environments.
The Identifier Bottle Scanner detects the presence of hazardous liquids (explosives, precursors and component parts), aerosols and gels in sealed containers. Threats are measured against a secure, customer-specified database, which can be easily upgraded as new threats emerge. ECAC approved to the highest European performance standard, Type B Standard 3.
How the liquid explosive scanner is used at this airport
The client has a liquid explosive scanner in the main security area of the airport. It services all the security search areas to check any liquids or gels that warrant further investigation.
The alarm protocol used by the airport is that all liquids are tested if it fails the initial screening.
The Kromek liquid explosive scanner has made life easier and safer for staff and travellers
Before the bottle scanners arrival, the staff would use chemical testing kits. This required any outer packaging to be opened and the liquid container itself broken into so that the staff could dip test the material. This was not something that travellers were happy about. It also took longer to do than using the Kromek Bottle Scanner and needed more staff time and attention. The Bottle Scanner is easy to use and easy to interpret with a simple pass or fail notification.
Failed liquids are sent for further investigation.
