Technologies that have traditionally been used in fixed installations to detec hydrocarbon gas leaks, such as Catalytic / IR Point Sensors and IR Open Path Sensors all have one limitation in order for a leak to be detector, the gas itself must either be in close proximity to the detector or within a predefined area.
Unfortunately, ourdoor environmental conditions such as changing wind directions and quick dispersion of the gas cloud froom a leaking outdoor installation often cause traditional gas detection system to fail simply because the gas never reaches the detector.
Gassonic ultrasonic gas leak detectors, are based on robust microphone technology; they detect outdoor leaks by sensing the distinct high frequency ultrasound emitted by all high pressure gas leaks. With the unique ultrasonic sensing technology found in all Gassonic products leaking gas itself does not have to reach the sensor - just the sound of the gas leaking. By adding Gassonic Ultrasonic Gas Leak Detectors faster reponse times and lower operation costs can be obtained.
