Gas Leak Detection Ultrasound Gas Leak Detection For Open installations

Editor: Dominik Stephan

Well ventilated spaces or open installations can be challenging in terms of gas leak detection – So why not use a monitor that goes for the leak and not the emitted gas? General Monitors new Gassonic Observer–H combines ultrasound detection with modern communication systems.

General Monitors introduces the Gassonic Observer–H Ultrasonic Gas Leak Detector for leak detection in pressurized systems. Fitted with HART communications, Modbus with single and block transfer modes, Emerson AMS Intelligent Device Manager support, and event logging, the Gassonic Observer–H is suited for compressor stations, drilling rigs, FPSO, gas handling or storage facilities or applications in the petrochemical industry.

The device detects gas leaks by sensing the airborne ultrasound emitted from leaking gas at high pressure and can therefor be used in open, well-ventilated areas, where traditional detection methods may be unsuitable or dependent on ventilation.

Since the gas leak detector 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 leak. The Gassonic Observer-H’s wide coverage zone makes it possible to supervise areas up to a 20 meter radius, for the detection of leaks as small as 0.1 kg/sec., with only one device.
