The Technology behind SNIFF & SAVE®

SNIFF & SAVE - An Innovation in Fire Prevention and Overheating Alert.

The goal of SNIFF & SAVE is to enable the user as early as possible to intervene and stop a upcoming fire incident and it shall support the user to save devices, prevent material and financial damage and loss. It has never been easier to protect your investment in machinery and make use of an early warning solution that is as simple and effective as SNIFF & SAVE. Our Solution has been developed based on 4GENE´s innovative FLAVOR-ON-DEMAND Technology.

The FLAVOR-ON-DEMAND Technology is a biotechnical process and allows to transform a volatile odor molecule into a chemically bound non-volatile molecule. The chemically bound molecule can be stored for a long time and it can be reactivated when needed using one of many triggers. In this application the trigger used is HEAT (Pyrolyses). It is used to start the reactivation which will than release the odor that can be sensed by humans. The overheating alert works by the release of chemically bound non-toxic warning odors. These warning odors used are reminiscent of smoke and overheated carbohydrates. The released warning odors are also intuitively associated with abnormal heating processes and danger when being sensed close to technical installations. Once you observe the warning odor, it allows to switch off the overheated device in an early stage of overheating and long before a fire really starts.

The regular temperature that is needed to start the reactivation is 130°C (266°F). The temperatur that will start the reactivation can also be lower at 100°C / 80°C (212°F/176°F) using different formulations of the SNIFF & SAVE Odor-Mix. The release temperature can be adjusted according to your needs.

The SNIFF & SAVE Overheating Alert, available as Sticker, Pen or Spray, does not intend to substitute any other fire protection measures. Instead, it is designed to work independently from other safety systems or their hardware. It gives a direct alert via human olfactory sensation rather than by conventional acoustic or optical signals from technical devices. It represents an additional safety system layer, giving more safety to you and your installations. Additionally SNIFF & SAVE can be extended with various Options like "fluorescence", "color change", "used marker" and others. Fully equiped SNIFF & SAVE is a Multi-Layer High-Tech product.

Discover Our Main Product Benefits

Our Solution focuses entirely on the prevention of fire by overheating of Cables, Machines and Devices. We expect SNIFF & SAVE to be a new Layer of Safety for our Customers. There is nothing like it on the market today and nothing that is as easy to use and apply at the same time. The only Focus we have to Warn and Alert you as early as possible and SNIFF & SAVE does exactly this.
Despite the useful Hardware Sensors that are available at the market today we believe that rethinking the safety concepts and include SNIFF & SAVE as an additional Layer of Safety is worth exploring. The more time you have between being Alerted and the Fire actually starting, the more time you have to secure your Assets. More Time to save your machinery, your Devices and your employees. Not to mention the cost of business downtime and business re-opening cost.
No Fire - No Damage - No Financial Loss. But only once you have been alerted before the fire has started. According to statistics of Insurance companies the most difficult part starts with the business downtime and getting it up and running again. Only 25% of the Companies that have seen Business downtime because of a fire incident can rebuild business and reach the business levels from before the fire within 2 Years after the incident.
The handling of the SNIFF & SAVE products ist as easy as it can get. Peel off the Sticker - Place it - Done. Mark with the Pen - Check it - Done. Spray it - Check it - Done. We guarantee a two Year functionality. Using some of the Options might makes sense as well. And still it is the easiest solution to handle that simply works !
