Innovative Technology from AMETEK Land Leads to the “World’s Greatest!...” Television Series

Tuesday, February 23, 2021

AMETEK Land features on “World’s Greatest!…”, a leading US television production series that spotlights the innovative technology behind the company’s products. 

A film crew visited the LAND facilities in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to interview the experts behind the company’s innovations, which includes the VIRALERT 3, a human body temperature screening system.  

The end result is an episode that showcases the LAND facility, behind the scenes footage, informative interviews as well as visuals of how the products are produced. 

In particular, viewers will see how the VIRALERT 3 system works, with exclusive footage of the laboratories where it is developed and tested. 

VIRALERT 3 is a body temperature screening system that adds an extra level of reassurance to site operators looking to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious respiratory diseases. Unlike handheld thermometers, which compromise social distancing, VIRALERT 3 automatically scans from a safe distance that complies with safety guidelines, detecting elevated temperatures that could indicate a fever. 

Justin Smith, AMETEK Land Division Vice President, said: “We are really excited to be part of ‘World’s Greatest!…’. Our technology is world-leading, from developing a temperature system during the SARS outbreak in 2003, to VIRALERT 3 in 2020 and other systems in between; our innovation, expertise and knowledge is worth sharing to a global audience.”
