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. Thanks to its notable value, which includes a fast speed of response (typically T90 in less than 5 seconds), fail-to-safety operation, immunity to poisons and ability to work in inert atmospheres, IR detection is fast becoming a popular method of detection - particularly within the oil, gas and petrochemical industries.
