Features of the new Laser Methane mini A new era in portable methane detection has arrived. Truly portable and handheld, the Laser Methane Detector (LMD) and Laser Methane mini (LMm) off ers users the ability to detect methane remotely. What once was a time consuming and resource draining procedure can now be completed in a fraction of the time by utilizing the best in Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS).
Current methods such as FID, require users to be within arm’s reach of a potential methane source, and to position the detector into the gas cloud, often requiring scaff olding or special access equipment to reach the area of interest. In stark contrast, the Laser Methane handhelds only need the emitted beam to pass through the gas cloud in order to detect methane.
By simply pointing the laser beam towards a suspected leak, or along a survey line the handheld detector will monitor the level if methane detected. Escaping gas carries with it a risk to the surveyor detecting the leak. Remote detection of methane enables the surveyor to operate a potential danger zone. Removing the surveyor from hazardous and hard to reach areas, reduces the risk of injiury. Laser Methane mini Speci cation SA3C32A It
