Mining, Oil, and Gas

The oil, gas, and mining industries are increasingly looking for sensor detection for chemicals and radiation emitting from their activities. Compliance with EPA regulations is critical to avoid significant fines in addition to maintaining a safe workspace for their employees. Oil and gas pipelines can leak methane among other toxic gases. Uranium and rare earth mining expose radioactive elements to the air.

Fracking rock releases radon and other naturally occurring radiation from this process. Industries benefit from detectors and monitors, portable, installed, and flown (UAVs), by Technical Associates, a division of US Nuclear Corp.
