Chementator: Enhanced gas detection  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Launched at ISA Expo 2008 this month (Houston, Tex.; October 14 – 16), the ELDS line-of-sight gas detectors from Senscient, Inc. (League City, Tex.) is said to deliver three orders of magnitude better sensitivity for detecting flammable gases and false-alarm free, low parts-per-million gas detection. Units — initially designed for the oil-and-gas industry — can be configured to detect methane and hydrogen sulfide simultaneously, which can lower capital expenditures and maintenance costs up to 60% for comprehensive gas-detection installations, says the firm. The system is based on patented enhanced laser-diode spectroscopy (ELDS). Click here for a full pdf version of the Chementator Section
