Safely safeguarding chemical facilities

CCTV Handbook 2019 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Industrial (Industry)

Hanwha Techwin is playing a major role in ensuring a safe working environment for Hanwha Chemical, Korea’s leading petrochemical company. Hanwha Techwin’s network cameras, the Wisenet T industrial surveillance lineup, have been installed at the Hanwha Chemical Ulsan 1 Production Site 1 (hereafter called Hanwha Chemical).

Hanwha Chemical takes precautions to avoid potential industrial incidents such as fires, explosions, or leakages of toxic chemicals. Thus, explosion-proof and stainless steel cameras from the Wisenet T series have been selected to ensure the safety of employees and nearby community, in addition to protecting assets within the facility.

The explosion-proof cameras (TNU-6320E) were installed both in and out of the facility including on the peripheries, laboratories, and chemical warehouses. These cameras accommodate the stainless steel SUS316L housing that prevents explosions triggered by any internal or external factors, ensuring safe operations at chemical and industrial facilities. Further attesting to their high safety is that they have been certified to ATEX II, a European certification of explosion-proof products. Furthermore, the built-in wiper automatically removes snow, rain, dust, or dirt on the lens for clean and clear monitoring.

Stainless steel cameras (XNP-6320HS) were also installed throughout the site in locations that do not handle any explosive materials, yet require highly durable cameras due to chemical sources. Made of a stainless steel enclosure that is both strong and highly resistant to corrosion and acid, they provide superior protection against corrosive chemicals and are optimised for monitoring industrial facilities. In addition, the cameras are waterproof and vandalproof and have the IP67, IP66, NEMA4X, and IK10 certifications, offering a stable operation even under extremely low or high temperatures. Their design also allows easy cleaning and maintenance, making them ideal for places that require strict hygienic standards such as chemical plants, medical facilities, or food manufacturing facilities.
