About Us

Scent Detection is a trading name of Central Engineering Design Ltd.

We specialise in the design, development and manufacture of canine training equipment and vapour systems for remotely analysing scents by canine olfaction.

Coming from a background of medical, scientific and security products our expertise has been instrumental in the development and supply of carousel scent wheels for the military, police forces and border control.

We designed REST equipment for air freight security in the private sector, working closely with the DFT and the DSTL  

The design of our medical stands has aided research in the detection of Covid, leukaemia and seizure alert dogs.

All our products are made of the highest quality materials and come with a 2 – 5 year manufacturer’s guarantee and are not to be confused with cheap Aluminium versions. Our products are sterilisable and will give you many years of service with aftercare.

Our products are specifically designed, tested and manufactured for the application intended. We do not rebrand cheap imported domestic items for scent work, unlike some of our competitors!

Our products can be tailored to meet your individual needs and we can offer help and advice to achieve your goals.

We have an international courier service and can supply customers from across the globe.

What We Do

We have worked with many government agencies in the design and development of canine training equipment. We can design equipment for any specific application from vapour systems to simple scent hides. 

We are Engineers with a wealth of knowledge of canine and handler behaviour, coming from a surgical and scientific instrumentation background.

We offer free and friendly advice and are happy to help you turn your ideas into working prototypes. We have an NDA process and can help with Patents should you wish.

Eric Burchell & Hotsche Luik, Advanced Canine Technologies Ltd

Central Engineering has been integral part in the design, development and future proofing of a number of canine concepts that have advanced the training of military working dogs. This partnership has helped increase the quality of canines used for detection purposes.

As a project manager for a major defence canine contract for Afghanistan it was Central Engineering that we (MoD) turned too to procure bespoke equipment that will help dog handlers in the field, undoubtedly to save lives.

Central Engineering have also been involved in many private sector enterprises and their innovative ideas, flexible approach and as important cost, make them the ideal choice for any canine project.
