RMLD-IS intrinsically safe remote methane leak detector is designed to "impact detection of fugitive greenhouse gas emissions."
As an eye-safe laser-based natural gas (methane) detector, it quickly and efficiently detects leaks up to 100 ft away. This enables remote detection of underground piping, compressor stations, offshore platforms, gas processing plants, gas gathering, drilling sites, as well as above-ground. When the infrared laser beam is transmitted from the launch port, some of the laser light is reflected back and converted to an electrical signal. This carries data to deduce methane concentration.
