A brief history of IR gas detection
Gas detection has been through a number of evolutions since the birth of the industry over 50 years ago. A major milestone in its history has been the introduction of Infrared (IR) gas detection, which uses a Hydrocarbon gas’ ability to absorb IR light at a pre-determined wavelength.
