Multisensor Systems is a developer and supplier of Environmental Monitoring instruments based in the United Kingdom. Our instruments provide a very high level of sensitivity and also the facility for on-line reporting, which optimises your response time to pollution events or accidental spillages. The low maintenance and calibration requirements minimise the ongoing cost of ownership. Our technology is based around the use of industry leading sensor products, innovative signal processing techniques and the understanding and implementation of our customer’s needs. Our success depends on customer service, whether that is in quality of our systems, the advice and assistance we provide to our customers in product choice and application, or the onsite training provided to ensure the full benefit of the instruments are realised.
The systems we design and build are used by water utilities, businesses and Government agencies to provide protection from spills, process control and security in the event of uncontained pollution events.
Our products are designed and built to the highest quality standards and are used to:
- Protect Water Treatment facilities and Waste Water Treatment Works
- Provide pollution control to Boreholes, Rivers and other water courses
- Monitor the quality of Drinking Water in the Distribution Network
- Measure emissions from commercial, industrial, land fill and agricultural sites
Multisensor Systems started life in the University of Manchester. The company was the brainchild of Professor Krishna Persaud, an acknowledged authority in the development of sensors for the detection of gases.
The original development was for an instrument to detect heavy organic loads in waste water, allowing treatment works to respond to the loading with changes in dosing or storage of waste until it could be processed.
This was followed by an instrument to detect very low concentrations of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in clean water to protect drinking water treatment plants. This instrument became the MS1000 and has been supplied to many customers.
2007 - The success of the MS1000 caused the University of Manchester Intellectual Property (UMIP) company to inject seed funding and establish Multisensor Systems Ltd as an entity.
2009 - With sales increasing there then became the need for full time management and support staff and so the company sought funding to take it to the next stage of development.
2010 - Funding was obtained in March and the first staff employed. At the end of August 2010, the company moved from the University campus to the current premises in Cheadle, south of Manchester.
2011 - A new upgraded version of the VOC instrument was released as the MS1100 VOC Pollution event monitor, featuring a smaller footprint and updated software.
2013 - Further new distributors were appointed in Canada and the USA and, due to customer demand, an ATEX approved monitor for use in environments with an explosive atmosphere was developed and produced - The MS1100-ATEX.
