Q.E.D. Environmental Systems Inc., a leading manufacturer of innovative environmental products and subsidiary of Graco Inc., has introduced the Huberg LASER One natural gas leak analyzer for North American market.
This state-of-the-art portable natural gas leak analyzer detects methane using tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy. This highly sensitive detector offers all of the advantages of optical detection in a highly compact and portable device, making it ideal for surveying networks.
The LASER One instrument provides precise and reliable findings when detecting methane leaks, with accurate detection of leaks of 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 ideal for the detection of natural gas leaks in underground natural gas distribution networks. However, it can be used for both underground and aboveground pipelines, and it quickly warms up in just 30 to 60 seconds.
“Having a production and calibration facility means the Huberg LASER One natural gas leak analyzer gets great results since our lab has more precise methane quantification. This means higher accuracy, even with biogas leaks,” said Peter Bloem, Huberg business unit manager for QED.
The LASER One instrument is ATEX and IECEX-certified for safe operation in Zone 1 areas. Proprietary software offers distribution network operators (DNOs) the ability to integrate into their data reporting systems.
Established in 1987, Huberg is known among industry professionals as a top manufacturer of safety instrumentation systems for gas suppliers. Through the years, Huberg has provided customers with well-engineered products, continuous innovation, professional information, consulting and customized services, all to guarantee the highest quality and reliability. QED acquired Huberg in 2019 and now distributes Huberg products to American markets.
