Why acoustic gas leak detection?

Jan 19 2011 Read 1419 Times

Acoustic gas leak detectors are used in pressurized gas applications to complement conventional gas detection methods. In outdoor or ventilated locations, conventional detectors may miss gas leaks due to wind conditions, gas dilution, or leak directionality. Since the ultrasonic detectors pick up gas leaks by responding to the airborne ultrasound they do not rely on physical contact between the gas and the sensor element. This significantly improves total speed of response to dangerous gas leaks.

The Gassonic ultrasonic detectors are based on stainless steel electret condenser microphone technology, which ensures a high degree of reliability. The most advanced detector models feature the Senssonic™ self-test, a patented solid state self-test mechanism to validate operation at all times. The detectors have a detection radius up to 20 meters at a leak rate of 0.1 kg/s.
