DuPont showcases burn injury evaluation device in Kuwait

DUBAI, December 9, 2014

DuPont, a leading chemical company, demonstrated its Thermo-Man life-sized instrumented mannequin system, an advanced thermal burn injury evaluation device, at the Kuwait Fire Services Directorate Complex.

The demonstration was aimed at providing more safety and protection to the country’s oil and gas workers along with those who work in the humanitarian sectors such as fire fighters, said a statement.

The presentation highlighted the ability of the unit to measure second- and third- degree burns and also to predict the level, extent and location of potential burns of the whole garment in a stimulated flame exposure, it said.

Amr Al Moniem, general manager, DuPont Gulf, said: “We are extremely delighted to receive an overwhelming response to the debut demonstration of Thermo-Man in Kuwait. It is a manifestation of our continuous commitment to provide effective solutions for fire and other occupational hazards in the region through DuPont’s innovative technology.

“Following the success of this demonstration, we look forward to strengthen our presence and investment in the country in order to further secure the working environment for people in the oil and gas field as well as humanitarian workers.”

The DuPont Thermo-Man demonstration also provided a burn injury comparison between the flame-resistant protective apparel made of DuPont Nomex with a variety of other flame-resistant garments in order to reflect the difference the quality of material used can make when exposed to an open flame, said the statement.

The highly advanced unit has been used by many industries all over the world – including oil and gas, petrochemicals, chemicals, electricity, and fire-fighting services – since the 1970s to test burn injuries for flame-resistant clothing, it said.

It is capable of evaluating different occupational hazards and dangers while maintaining the highest levels of safety and protection. It also determines the degree of burns and locates them on clothing when exposed to flames, it added. - TradeArabia News Service
