Samis is an automatic system that detects, block and recovers substances accidentally spilled, it can be used for hydrocarbons or other toxic substances.
Automatic Monitoring System specifically designed and developed for groundwaters.
SAM systems (groundwater monitoring and protection), and SAMIS (Automatic system for detecting and blocking pollutants) are patented. Through detection probes they are able both to detect, with continuous measurements, the presence of contaminants (like Hydrocarbons), and to activate alarm and / or retrieving groups. Both operating systems are currently installed on behalf of oil companies such as Eni S.p.A. and Irminio S.r.l. and companies operating in the environmental remediation field such as Petroltecnica S.p.A.
The SAM system is a Samis configuration to automatically detect and, if required, recover contaminated fluid in a groundwater monitoring well. The system can be set to track changes in the water table over time. The SAM system was successfully installed in 2016 in an oil extraction field in Italy to monitor the presence of crude oil in underground wells near extraction points.
