WHAT IT DOES
The GasFinder3-DC and the associated Measurement Heads are a field deployable Open-Path Tunable Diode Laser (OP-TDL) based gas analyzer system that is primarily used for:
- Leak Detection – provides immediate and unambiguous detection of fugitive gas releases in industrial safety applications
- Ambient Monitoring – Continuously monitors gas concentrations over open area and/or point sources for environmental monitoring applications
This technology is also most commonly referred to as Open Path Gas Detection (OPGD) or Line of Sight (LOS).
This particular technology is ideal for detecting or monitoring for a number of different Toxic, Combustible, Hazardous, or Greenhouse Gases.
Core System Components
GasFinder3-DC: is the analyzer or also known as a CCU or Controller. The GasFinder3-DC houses the laser and electronics.
Measurement Head(s): attachment used to form the Active Measurement Path and provides the direct sample for the GasFinder3-DC to analyze. There are three core Measurement Heads available for the GasFinder3-DC – Open Path (OPX) Head, Remote Point (RPX) Probe, and the Stack/Duct (SDX) Probe.
Accessories: additional components used to provide additional functionality or increase ease of use for the end-user.
Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) Monitoring in Alkylation Unit:
Early warning for the release of the toxic Hydrogen Fluoride is critical. The wide area coverage, one second response time, and very low detection limits make Open Path Laser Gas Detection ideal.
Methane (CH4) Monitoring on Tank Farm:
The Open Path Laser Gas Detection is more than capable of monitoring atmospheric concentrations of methane. Boreal Laser is known as the gold standard for ambient methane monitoring not only by industry but with academia and researchers as well. This technology is perfect for remote applications as there is no requirement for routine calibration or intervention.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Monitoring on Heat Exchanger:
Boreal Laser’s GasFinder3-DC and Open Path (OPX) Heads are often used in applications where traditional technology cannot survive the harsh environment or application. Since our Open Path Gas Detector use laser light as its measurement sensor it is well suited to the troublesome applications in your facility.
