By DJ Slater09 November 2020
Q.E.D. Environmental Systems, Inc., an environmental products manufacturer and subsidiary of Graco Inc., has introduced the Huberg Laser One natural gas leak analyzer.
The portable natural gas leak analyzer, available in North America, detects methane using a tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy. The detector offers all of the advantages of optical detection in a compact and portable device, making it ideal for surveying networks, the company said.
The Laser One features accuracy detection down to 0.5 ppm 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 suitable for detecting natural gas leaks in underground natural gas distribution networks. The analyzer can also be used for underground and above-ground pipelines.
The analyzer is ATEX and IECEX-certified for safe operation in Zone 1 areas. Proprietary software offers the ability to integrate into data reporting systems.
