Gas Leak Detection Simulation Tool

Nov 30 2009

Gassonic (Denmark) has developed the World’s first gas leak simulation tool. The new Simulator can be accessed in a trial version on Gassonic’s website www.gassonic.com/simulator. The Simulator makes it
possible to experience why ultrasonic gas leak detectors are widely used for quick gas leak detection in challenging conditions found on most outdoor oil and gas installations on- and offshore.

As the Simulator shows, the major advantage of implementing ultrasonic gas leak detectors for fixed detection of high-pressure gas leaks is the fact that the system responds to the distinctive ultrasound created by the leak. This means that the detectors pick up gas leaks at the speed of sound without having to wait for the gas to accumulate and physically enter a point sensor head (conventional point detector) or within a narrow beam
(open path gas detector). The acoustic detection method is thereby also unaffected by unknown factors such as wind conditions, gas dilution, and leak direction.
