ATLANTA, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) and INFICON Inc. announced today a portable, intrinsically safe INFICON DataFID™ Flame Ionization Detector and Trimble® SEMonitor™ software as a complete solution for surface methane monitoring of landfills. The landfill gas solution provides a more streamlined workflow for the environmental services professional, improving efficiency and reducing rework.
The announcement was made at WasteExpo 2014, North America's largest solid waste and recycling tradeshow. The new INFICON DataFID and Trimble SEMonitor solution will be showcased at the Trimble booth 4555 in the Technology Pavilion.
In the past, field technicians had to carry notebooks, maps, plans and the sensor to locate, mitigate and audit trouble points on site. The Trimble SEMonitor and INFICON DataFID solution combine to eliminate the need for pen and paper, increase communication capabilities in the field and improve work flow demands for field technicians, maximizing productivity and streamlining the workflow.
By leveraging Trimble's innovation and expertise in geospatial software solutions with INFICON's proficiency in portable, intrinsic safe detection equipment, environmental professionals can see increased efficiency in conducting their landfill methane surface emission monitoring, analysis and reporting.
"Collaborating with INFICON allows us to offer a more robust software solution while simultaneously addressing the entire environmental workflow from data collection through analysis for compliance and operational optimization," said John Rice, general manager of Trimble's Environmental Solutions Division. "Together, we offer the environmental industry a complete end-to-end solution for landfill methane monitoring."
"The Trimble SEMonitor adds a unique dimension to traditional monitoring practices by streamlining surface landfill gas data collection, analysis and compliance reporting. Communicating via the Bluetooth connection, the hardware and software solutions combine to improve efficiency, accuracy and effectiveness of surface methane monitoring," said ChingYue Yeung, product manager for the INFICON DataFID.
The INFICON DataFID Flame Ionization Detector and the Trimble SEMonitor software are currently available globally through Trimble or INFICON. For more information, contact Trimble at Environmental_Solutions@trimble.com or INFICON at firstname.lastname@example.org.
