Laser Based – Gas Detection/Monitoring
You’ll see a general theme here and that is Boreal Laser’s line of Laser Based – Gas Detectors thrive where other technologies to do not survive.
Here is a quick re-cap of applications within the Oil & Gas Industry such as: Refining + Petro-Chemical.

FIELD PROVEN EXPERIENCE
Below are the applications that Laser Based – Open Path Gas Detection has been proven.
Inferred Hydrogen (H2) Open Open Path Gas Detection
Inferred Boron Trifluoride (BF3) Open Path Gas Detection
Boron Trifluoride (BF3):
Technical Information from Honeywell
Leak Detection – Page. 12 of 27:
Under normal atmospheric conditions, Boron Trifluoride does not exist as such due to the instantaneous reaction of BF3 with atmospheric moisture (see discussion on Aqueous Chemistry of BF3). Therefore, no detectors have been developed specifically for BF3. The hydrate of BF3 formed is a dense, white cloud visible at a level less than 1 ppm. Visual observation via closed circuit television is often used to monitor BF3 processing areas for leaks. HF specific point source monitors set at less than 10 ppm detection limits have been employed to detect the intermediate hydrolysis product resulting from a leak. This method cannot be used to quantify the amount or concentration of BF3 only to indicate the existence of a leak.
