BREAKTHROUGH FIRE SUPPRESSION PRODUCTS FOR OVER 80 YEARS.
DIMES ensures the readiness of an inert gas system by digitally monitoring cylinder contents 24/7/365 — and sending a notification in case of a leak. Before DIMES, traditional monitoring methods relied on cylinder pressure alone to calculate contents. This can lead to "false reads" due to the effect that variation in temperature has on inert gas pressure. Now, DIMES is the first to be able to adjust for temperature variations on pressure to deliver a precise real gas reading. DIMES measures both pressure and temperature and calculates contents with 99.9% accuracy. A digital display shows the fill level and a software interface is available for remote monitoring.
