TWL-1SV

Online Heat Stress Weather Station

TWL-1SV is the advanced heat safety solution with remote heat management capabilities. Using TWL and WBGT algorithms, it calculates heat stress indices from ambient temperature, humidity, radiant heat, wind speed, and direction. Real-time data can be viewed and downloaded on Scarlet heat monitoring web portal remotely. Users can receive instant heat alerts via browser or email, ensuring proactive safety measures.

Cloud-Based
Heat Monitoring

TWL-1SV collects heat measurements and connects via ethernet to provide real-time data and visual alerts directly to the Scarlet online heat monitoring portal. The web portal enables you to monitor multiple TWL-1SV stations, ensuring comprehensive heat management.

Receive TWL alerts from all TWL-1SV stations on your display, regardless of location.

Remote
Visual Alerts

Based on TWL values, it alerts of heat risks at worksites with color codes—red (high risk), yellow (medium), and green (low). The alerts include a hydration plan and are accessible via email and web browser. This helps prevent heat-related illnesses, ensuring effective safety management.

Why Thermal Work
Limit (TWL) Alerts?

Getting TWL alerts is crucial for maintaining workplace safety in heat-intensive area. It informs if the worksite is in high (TWL< 115), medium (115 < TWL < 140), or low risk (TWL>140) conditions for workers to work. By receiving immediate notifications of TWL changes, managers can take adjustment of work conditions, ensuring a safe and productive environment.

Protect Workers from Heat-Related Illnesses

Extreme hot weather can put workers at risk of heat-related illness, injury or even death in extreme cases. Some of the illness includes heat exhaustion, heat cramps, or heat rashes, and heat stroke. The effective way to manage heat stress in the work place is to first by determining the heat index level.

The TWL-1S has been tested and validated by Health Authority – Abu Dhabi in the extreme high temperature and high humidity Gulf region as well as the mines in Australia. The TWL algorithm used by TWL-1S device is the latest version attested by the research team in Curtin University, Australia.

Scenario

Risk assessment for heat-related illness in the worksite is quite essential in high temperature environments. TWL-1S can be applied at outdoor and indoor working environments. For instance, a health and safety officer can place the TWL-1S at the “hot spot” zone in worksite and continuously monitor environmental parameters. With 200 meters transmission distance of wireless signal, the paging system can actively warn safety officers in real time. TWL-1S is able to help managers set work/rest cycle and hydration plans for workers.

As TWL is to mimic the effects of the working environment on laborers, it is suggested the TWL-1S unit should be placed on the worksite where the majority of workers are located. For example, if there is no shade provided on the worksite, the TWL-1S should be exposed to sunlight as most workers are.

However, in order to prolong the machine life, you can place TWL-1S under sunlight while measuring. Before pushing the TWL button, please allow TWL-1S at least 10 minutes in the working environment to get balance. After the TWL level shows up, you can put it back to shade.

The TWL is the thermal work limit. It’s an advanced heat stress index and research found it more useful in workplaces.

The TWL predicts the maximum level of work that can be carried out in a given environment, without workers exceeding a safe core body temperature 38.2 °C (100.8 °F) and sweat rate (< 1.2 kg or 2.6 lb per hour). WBGT does not incorporate a direct measure of wind speed and requires estimation of metabolic rates, which can have a margin of error up to 50%. Heat stress indexes such as WBGT and ISO 7933 do not take into account the effects of long hours of hard work, dehydration, or the impact of personal protective clothing and equipment. WBGT and heat index are too conservative and inappropriate for practical in the extreme working environments such as Middle East countries or high-temperature process industry or mines. Scarlet TWL-1S incorporated both WBGT and TWL index features. You can simply switch heat indices for your need.
