TeQ Shield™ featured in leading industry magazines and columns
Since its launch at the Global Petroleum Show in June last year, the TeQ Shield™ has invaded industry publications and columns on safety. HSE Now, SPE’s new web- and app-based publication featured the TeQ Shield™ in October and again this month, as an innovative technology designed to do confined space monitoring.
Two other components of the TeQ Shield™ have also been introduced at ADIPEC 2015 such as the Bio and Therma. The TeQ Shield™ Bio is a system that can monitor vitals such as heart rate, breathing rate, and core body temperature of up to 64 workers simultaneously. TeQ Shield™ Therma, on the other hand, is an innovative temperature control system based on compressed-air technology.
