Product Announcement from Senscient Inc.

ELDS™ 1000 Series Methane-Image

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 Methane

  • Reliable, open path detection of methane at levels low enough to provide early warning for leakage of this highly flammable gas. Detection Limits for methane leak detection are orders of magnitude lower than any other OPGD product.
  • 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!

Offshore Platforms, FPSO's, Onshore Petrochemical facilities and Refineries.

Theory of Operation:
Using a separate transmitter and receiver configuration, ELDS™ 1000 Series OPGD systems can detect and measure methane over distances between 5 and 200 m. The ELDS technique measures the Harmonic Fingerprint™ introduced onto the transmitter's laser beam(s) by absorption by any target gas in the monitored path.
