Combustible Gas Leak Detector finds leaks in industrial systems

PRO-Chek CG Combustible Gas Leak Detector (CG-1000) provides a safe and effective way to detect gas leaks in industrial systems.
PRO-Chek CG Combustible Gas Leak Detector (CG-1000) provides a safe and effective way to detect gas leaks in industrial systems.

Industrial maintenance technicians need to be extremely vigilant in inspecting gas systems to ensure they’re working to maximum capability. Without proper attention, the results can range from gas losses, gas purity issues and other safety concerns—including fire or asphyxiation. Spectroline PRO-Chek CG Combustible Gas Leak Detector (CG-1000) provides a safe and effective way to detect gas leaks in industrial systems.

This specialty tool is ideal for finding leaks in natural gas systems, propane tanks, pipelines, regulators and valves, heat exchangers and much more. The unit detects natural gas, propane, ammonia, methanol, ethanol, ethane, butane and other gases.

The PRO-Chek CG is certified intrinsically safe for use in combustive/explosive environments. It’s twice as sensitive as competitive units, and features an adjustable sensitivity control that helps pinpoint the exact location of every leak fast.

Additional features include a variable-intensity audible alarm and flashing LEDs to quickly determine the size and strength of the leak. An auto-zeroing function blocks out background gas levels in the test area. The detector’s chrome-plated, flexible metal probe allows leak checking in tight places.

The PRO-Chek CG comes complete with a field-replaceable sensor, (2) D cell batteries and a rugged carrying case.

Proposed pipeline protection eases environmental concerns

Pipeline-related oil spills are costly and cause public outcry. A new construction and operation method using double-wall pipes may help ease those concerns.

Pipelines move millions of barrels of petroleum products around North America in any given year. Most of the time, the process is entirely uneventful – oil goes in one end of the line and comes out the other at its destination.

Predictive models stop spills before they happen

The use of specialized software is expanding, with more and more kilometres of pipe being looked at before problems arise.

According to the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association’s 2015 Pipeline Industry Performance Report, there are more than 110,000 kilometres of transmission pipeline in Canada that move more than 1.2 billion barrels of liquid petroleum products and 5.3 trillion cubic feet of gas each year. On those pipelines last year, there were 122 spills or releases reported, four of which were classed as significant by industry standards – and that’s just main transmission lines. There are many more kilometres of smaller pipes criss-crossing oil and gas fields across the country.

Forego fusion: new methods for joining HDPE pipe

HDPE couplings like this meet or exceed specs for pressure, end pull load and other uses.

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe is beneficial in oil and gas applications because it provides flexibility, durability and abrasion resistance more cost effectively than lined steel pipe. Fusion, considered the standard joining method for HDPE, presents significant challenges in conditions that aren’t ideal. The industry has sought alternatives and manufacturers have answered with various mechanical joining methods. However, none of these have unseated fusion as the incumbent, and the methods have, for the most part, remained specialty joints.
