LGR’s new Fast Methane/Ethane Analyzer (FMEA) reports measurements of methane and ethane, the two major components of natural gas, simultaneously. The analyzer is available in either the acclaimed ultraportable or rackmount package. The ultraportable unit is compact, crushproof and travels anywhere. Small enough to be carried on-board aircraft (TSA approved size) or vehicles, and requiring only 70 W, the portable FMEA offers new opportunities to quickly and accurately measure and unambiguously find natural gas leaks anywhere. The standard rackmount unit includes a fast internal vacuum pump and reports data at 5 Hz to yield extremely fast time response.
For comprehensive measurements of natural gas leaks while driving, LGR offers MobileGuardTM, the Natural Gas Leak Detection System, which incorporates the FMEA with a sonic anemometer, GPS, and LGR’s proprietary leak location software to quickly identify the geographical origin.
