Product Announcement from Senscient Inc.
ELDS™ is a new open path gas detection (OPGD) system from Senscient Inc, based on innovative Enhanced Laser Diode Spectroscopy™ (ELDS) detection technology. ELDS™ OPGD systems provide many unique and attractive features designed to fulfill the promise of truly fit-and-forget open path gas detection.
Detects both toxic & flammable gases for up to 80% reduction in comprehensive gas detection project costs with true Fit-&-Forget functionality. FIRST and ONLY Toxic open path system to meet current industry Safety Performance Standards. FIRST and ONLY gas detector with Simu-Gas, an electronic, remote functionality check. 3 orders of magnitude greater sensitivity for combustible gases versus conventional OP systems. Perfect for detection of hazardous gases in critical applications. Backed by a network of industry-leading gas detection solutions providers. Proven technology, tested to meet oil and gas industry safety standards.
ELDS™ 1000 Series Cross-duct and HVAC Features / Benefits:
- Reliable, rapid detection of methane at the lowest levels required for cross-duct and HVAC applications.
- 100% continuous measurement of the amount of gas in the duct enables rapid detection of gas without the false-alarms associated with systems that make measurement flashes just a few times a second.
- Fully heated optics and no retroreflector means no problems with condensation or hoar frost.
- No false alarms from any other hydrocarbon gases including diesel fumes or oil mist.
- True ease-of-installation, with vibration and misalignment tolerant optics.
- SimuGas™ feature provides ability to accomplish on-demand, remote functionality testing right from the control room or PLC.
HVAC ducts, turbine inlets, turbine acoustic enclosures.
Theory of Operation:
Using a separate transmitter and receiver configuration, ELDS™ 1000 Series OPGD systems can detect and measure methane in ducts between 0.5m and 5m wide. The ELDS technique measures the Harmonic FingerprintTM introduced onto the transmitter's laser beam(s) by absorption by any target gas in the unit's path.
