PNG Gas Leak Detector

PNG (Methane), chemically known as CH4 is highly flammable, lightweight gas with LEL at 5% Vol = 100% LEL.

Methane gas detector series is highly robust, industrial grade, flameproof or explosion proof gas detector for methane leakage detection or LEL monitoring. Methane is also available in form as a natural gas, pressurized natural gas (PNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The detector is used for online, continuous monitoring of the flammable concentration of methane in %LEL or %Vol terms in ambient air or in duct or pipeline. It is ATEX, IECEX, PESO certified with SIL 2 safety integrity level for hazardous area installation Zone 1 and 2.

The sensor transmitter offers linear, proportional analog output in industry standard current signals, over measuring a range of 0 ~ 100 % LEL (lower explosive limit). The detector works on highly sensitive catalytic bead-based pellistor sensor cell, with low response time. It has the unique feature of an auto diagnostic watchdog with zero point tracking feature. Due to its 12-bit microprocessor based control unit, it offers high accuracy over the long term. The detector is also equipped with a sintered filter with flashback arrestor for enhanced safety.

It also offers optional features like inbuilt LCD display, flashing alarm LEDs, onboard potential free relay contacts (24VDC @ 1 A), RS485 serial interface with Modbus RTU communication.
