Global safety equipment manufacturer MSA Safety Inc. (MSA) has acquired Senscient, Inc., a leader in laserbased gas detection technology that can be used in a broad range of industrial, oil and gas production and petrochemical processing applications. The acquisition of Senscient (pronounced Sen-Sy-Ent) strengthens MSA’s leading position in the global market for fixed gas and flame detection (FGFD) systems, representing a key step in the execution of MSA’s Core Product growth strategy. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Senscient’s patented Enhanced Laser Diode Spectroscopy (ELDSTM) technology was launched in 2009. Capable of detecting a wide range of toxic and flammable gases, ELDSTM technology eliminates false alarms and enables faster, more reliable detection of hazardous gases, thereby improving worksite safety while reducing operational costs.

“This technology is significantly changing the way facility operators protect their personnel and assets from leaks of hazardous gases,” said Gustavo Lopez, MSA’s Global Product Business Director for Detection. “High false alarm rates, slow detection and poor reliability are problems that frequently plague worksite operations when dealing with gas leak detection.”

Senscient’s ELDSTM technology broadens MSA’s opportunities in areas of the world where oil production has the additional danger of high concentrations of H2S, like the Middle East and Kazakhstan, as well as across various industry applications, including gas and pipeline processing, ammonia and fertilizer production, refineries and petrochemicals production, waste water, photovoltaic, marine, and the process analytics industry.

"MSA’s commitment to safety and technical leadership is the perfect cultural fit with Senscient and our core values,” said Rajat Barua, President and CEO of Senscient. “For us, this combination delivers significant value and provides Senscient with an excellent platform to drive accelerated adoption of our technology with customers around the world.”

Kerry Bove, Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer for MSA, who is also responsible for the leading the company’s acquisition activities, added that the acquisition of Senscient immediately strengthens and fast tracks MSA’s new product development efforts in the area of laser-based, open-path gas detection. “Senscient’s innovative technology provides the perfect complement to our existing fixed gas and flame detection portfolio. Equally important, it provides further technical and competitive differentiation to MSA’s fixed gas and flame detection business,” Mr. Bove concluded.
