In the early 80's Micropack was involved in offshore process control and safety systems. This encompassed development, commissioning and support services to major clients and installations such as the Chevron Ninian field.
Micropack is also experienced in fire research work and the effects of offshore environmental conditions on optical detection methods.This work is what led to Micropack's development of a range of fire and gas mapping tools to measure the performance of fire and gas detection systems and we are considered a market leader in this field.
This experience led Micropack to apply its unique specialist knowledge and expertise in its own range of products, including the Visual Flame Detection System. Micropack's Visual Flame Detection System has been installed and successfully operated globally for over 15 years.
