    Reliable IR Methane Detection

Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection is introducing a new infrared (IR) sensor for its class-leading OLCT 100 XPIR (explosion-proof IR) fixed gas detector that will bring the advantages of stable and reliable methane detection measurements to the industrial, utility and laboratory markets. Methane poses many threats. Not only does it form potentially explosive mixtures with air, but it can also prove harmful to both humans and the environment. For these reasons, many sectors are keen to step up their methane detection capabilities. Increasing demand from the industrial, utility and laboratory markets stems from the need for enhanced measurement stability, aligning with the trend of lower alarm thresholds. 

High sensor longevity

To meet market demand for a more robust and cost-effective solution, Teledyne GFD is releasing a new IR sensor dedicated to methane detection. Designed for the company´s highly popular OLCT 100 XPIR fixed gas detector, the IR sensor ensures measurement stability and is impervious to catalytic poisons. Moreover, the solution offers a long lifespan, even with the presence of background gas, to deliver 100% LEL methane detection.

The ATEX-approved OLCT 100 XPIR, a proven performer in the detection of refrigerant, CO2 and combustible gases, comes with 4-20mA output ensuring safe and reliable operation. 

The same IR sensor technology is available with Teledyne GFD´s 700 series of fixed gas detectors.
