The Gassonic Observer ultrasonic gas detector is used to detect fugitive gas leaks in compressor stations. It is a non-concentration based gas detector that responds tothe airborne ultrasound generated from gas releases in open, well ventilated areas. Since the Gassonic Observer responds to the source of a gas release rather than the dispersed gas, it is unaffected by changing wind directions, gas dilution and the direction of the gas leak. The unit features:
- Detection radius of up to 20 meters at a leak rate of 0.1 kg/s.
- Senssonic™ integrated acoustic self-test, which periodically verifies the integrity of the electronic circuitry and the operation of the acoustic sensor.
- CSA, FM, ATEX, IECEx and C-UL compliance.
- A high pass filter to remove frequencies below 25 kHz, effectively eliminating interference from audible and low frequency ultrasonic noise.
