The Tri-City Herald of Kennewick, Wa. has published an article on the RJ Lee Group’s mobile chemical detection unit. The commercially available van, which is outfitted with a mass spectrometer and other scientific instrumentation that detects and measures chemicals in the environment, is currently being field tested at the Hanford tank farms in Hanford, Wa. Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS), a Department of Energy contractor, will decide upon completion of these tests whether the unit will be integrated into the existing technology at the tank farms.

WRPS is considering using our mobile chemical detecting unit due to concerns that brief, intense releases of vapor could be causing respiratory symptoms in the Hanford workers. The unit offers real-time analysis, low detection limits, and detailed chemical analysis. To read the article, please click here.
