Natural gas leak detector targets methane and localization of leaks
Q.E.D. Environmental Systems, Inc. now offers the Huberg LASER One natural gas leak analyzer for sale in North America.
This state-of-the-art portable natural gas leak analyzer detects methane using tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy. This highly-sensitive detector offers all of the advantages of optical detection in a highly compact and portable device, making it ideal for surveying networks.
The LASER One instrument provides precise and reliable findings when detecting methane leaks, with accurate detection of leaks of down to 0.5ppm in a response time of 2.5 seconds or 3.5 seconds with a probe. It is not sensitive to cross-gas contamination and does not require a gas cylinder for operation, which makes it ideal for the detection of natural gas leaks in underground natural gas distribution networks. However, it can be used for both underground and above ground pipelines and it quickly warms up in just 30 to 60 seconds. This is why the Huberg LASER One leak analyzer is trusted by leading natural gas mains distribution network operators (DNOs), and gas utility and service companies.
"Having a production and calibration facility means the Huberg LASER One natural gas leak analyzer gets great results since our lab has more precise methane quantification- this means higher accuracy, even with biogas leaks," said Peter Bloem, Huberg Business Unit Manager for QED.
The LASER One instrument is ATEX and IECEX-certified for safe operation in Zone 1 areas. Proprietary software offers DNOs the ability to integrate into their data reporting systems.
