Gas leak detector

By Plant Engineering Staff October 3, 2008

The OptoAcoustic GLD-OA-01 gas sensor comprises two identical cells that act interchangeably either as a primary gas-measurement cell or as a secondary compensation cell. The dual-cell design eliminates the need for calibration, making the sensor operational 60 seconds after being connected to a power source. The secondary cell is also used as a redundancy measure %%MDASSML%% providing an active sensing element and a backup sensing element, within one unit, in the event of primary cell failure. Embedded with compensation algorithms that provide immunity from up to 95% humidity and temperatures under 150 F, the device is capable of continuously monitoring combustible gas leaks in a measurement range of 0 to 100% of the Lower Explosion Limit.
