During the eighties, as part of his PhD, Michel Gantès, played an active role in the development of an oxygen sensor designed to predict imminent volcano eruptions.
In close cooperation with Haroun Tazieff’s team, he developed a technique to predict eruption of a volcano, based on the magma’s rise and the evolution of its gaseous phase. This technique is based on the measurement of oxygen partial pressure. Today, Michel is the Executive Director of SETNAG.
The experience Michel Gantès gained in a leading research laboratory in this field, working in the difficult domain of volcanoes, close to fumes and in tough conditions, enabled him to develop innovative gas analysis solutions.
SETNAG was the logical conclusion of this human and volcanic story. A company on a human scale. A 100% French team of oxygen specialists.
SETNAG was founded in 1986 by Michel Gantès, its current Executive Director, to develop and market a specific oxygen sensor, which is now called MicroPoas®. The technology has been continuously advanced and improved in order to meet SETNAG customers' requirements.
The strength of the SETNAG team derives from a wealth of entrepreneurial and human values, making the company focused on achieving customer satisfaction. Everyone plays an essential role in project implementation, through his or her know-how, expertise, and professionalism.
Advice, innovative solutions, safety, accuracy are the best words to describe SETNAG's activities, whether it is product manufacturing or service provision.
