Plumecast Airborne Plume Modelling

Richard Paul Russell Stand: N40
Plumecast manages risk from airborne plumes
Plumecast is a real time display of areas at risk from airborne plumes

Richard Paul Russell Ltd and Plumecast are launching a partnership within the UK market at the Emergency Services Show 2019, showcasing Plumecasts innovative software solution for real time display of actual and potential dispersion of atmospheric pollutants on stand N40.

With over 27 years expertise, Richard Paul Russell Ltd have combined Plumecast with the highest quality ultrasonic anemometers, their own SpaceLogger data logging technology and cloud solution WeatherFile. Accurate real time dispersion modelling uses live measurements taken at or near the source of the release delivering greater accuracy and the unique ability to automatically react to changing circumstances.

The Plumecast concept is simple. It combines software running on a PC with the output from an ultrasonic anemometer. The Plumecast software the runs a dispersion model updated every second, displays the area at risk from an accidental release and, in a real emergency, also displays the estimated present location of an airborne plume. Ultrasonic anemometers measure turbulence characteristics directly, making the real time dispersion modelling much more accurate.

Intended for top-tier COMAH sites, nuclear facilities and any site used for storage of material that could result in airborne toxic releases, installing Plumecast is the best way to demonstrate a capability to provide the information required for off-site emergency plans.

Mike Brettle, meteorologist and developer of the Plumecast system said " I am very excited that Richard Paul Russell Ltd. with their knowledge and expertise will be offering Plumecast to the UK emergency services market.

“We are really looking forward to the Emergency Services Show and introducing Plumecast to our existing and new clients. We believe Plumecast is an essential tool for managing risk from any toxic releases, David Ellis (Sales & Marketing Director).
