LGR’s new Ultraportable Methane/Acetylene Analyzer (UMAA) reports measurements of methane, acetylene and water vapor simultaneously in a package that is compact, crushproof and travels anywhere. Small enough to be carried on-board aircraft (TSA approved size) and requiring less than 60 watts, the UMAA offers opportunities to measure anywhere. As with all LGR instruments, the UMAA is simple to use and starts recording data immediately after power on which makes it ideal for landfill tracer studies, compliance monitoring, leak detection, air quality studies, process monitoring, and wherever measurements of methane, acetylene and water vapor are needed.
In addition, the UMAA reports and stores all measured absorption spectra which allows the instrument to accurately correct for water vapor dilution and absorption line broadening effects and thus to report CH4 and C2H2 on a dry mole fraction basis without drying or post processing. Furthermore, LGR’s “Extended Range” option provides accurate methane measurements at levels up to 10% mole fraction (without dilution) without reducing precision and sensitivity at typical ambient levels - a unique capability to LGR. Moreover, only LGR’s analyzers provide reliable guaranteed measurements at mole fractions greater than 100 times ambient levels.
