Vehicle Mounted Gas Leak Detection – OMD (Optical Methane Detection) HEATH

OPTICAL METHANE DETECTION – VEHICLE MOUNTED – HEATH OMD

OMD

The Optical Methane Detector (OMD™) was specifi­cally designed for the mobile inspection of buried natural gas distribution, transmission and gathering pipelines

This field proven technology combines sensitivity, selectivity and speed through the use of optics and electronics.

Field experience has proven that given adequate survey and meteorological conditions the OMD increases productivity 50% or more over current mobile survey.

A contributing factor to the increased productivity is the instantaneous response to leak indications versus the time delay present with cur­rent flame-ionization technologies.

Much of the maintenance associated with flame-ionization units, including moving parts, external fuel gases, outside sources of dust, dirt, moisture and water ingress, is eliminated with the OMD.

The OMD is mounted on the front of a survey vehicle.

It employs an infrared (IR) light beam that shines across the front of the vehicle. An optical filter in front of the detector transmits methane IR wavelengths from the light source. In the absence of methane, these wavelengths are unaffected and produce a steady output signal from the detector. The presence of methane causes a signal, audio and visual, which is transmitted to the display in analog and digital form inside the vehicle. The OMD can detect leak indications in concentrations of less than 1 part per million (ppm) at 10,000 measurements per second.

OMD-optical-methane-detection

The Heath OMD is calibrated by the driver or technician from inside the vehicle eliminating potential hazards such as explosive calibration gases. Leak indications are both audible and visual inside the vehicle at concentrations of less than 1 part per million (ppm) at 10,000 measurements per second. Data can be sent to a data logger or translated to a ground positioning satellite (GPS) system. Adding-on the Heath Survey Tracker will allow the ability to log mobile leak survey data and GPS locations of all natural gas leaks detected.

NO BUMP TESTING, SELF CALIBRATING …

DPIR_infrared_gas_leak_detector1

The DPIR features a self-test and calibration function which verifies operation and adjusts calibration for maximum sensitivity.  A test gas cell is integrated within the instrument.  While in operation, the DPIR continuously monitors several internal parameters to ensure that it is functioning properly.  Should any of these parameters go outside of operational limits, a constant audible alarm will sound and an ERROR icon is displayed.

Cal’ Gas, Cylinders, Regulators, Risk Assessments and bumping procedures are not required.

Available to rent or buy from Heath Pipeline Services this  instrument is intended to replace traditional Flame Ionisation methods with next-generation technology utilising an infrared light beam.  The DP-IR has been designed to be highly selective to detecting methane gas and WILL NOT FALSE ALARM on other hydrocarbon gases which may be encountered during a normal natural gas leak survey.

Heath RMLD (Remote Methane Leak Detection)

REMOTE METHANE LEAK DETECTION – HEATH RMLD-IS

Heath_RMLD

The intrinsically safe Remote Methane Leak Detector (RMLD-IS) manufactured by Heath USA, is an eye-safe laser-based natural gas detector (methane) that can quickly and efficiently detect leaks up to 30 metres away.

Our consultants use this infrared gas detector for residential surveying or to remotely detect methane emissions in areas that are difficult to access, such as; busy roadways, locked yards, underground piping, compressor stations, offshore platforms, plant/industrial inspections, gas processing plants, gas gathering, drilling sites, landfills, difficult terrains and more.

When the infrared laser beam is transmitted from the launch port, some of the laser light is reflected back and converted to an electrical signal that carries the information needed to deduce the methane concentration. The RMLD-IS has proven to be a highly effective gas leak survey instrument, compared to flame ionization and similar equipment, but with the added advantage of remote detection.  By design the RMLD-IS is capable of achieving significant productivity gains and can drastically reduce operations and maintenance costs.  Superior operator safety is achieved through the use of this gas leak instrument.

This same technology has been extensively tested and further developed by Heath USA for incorporation into drones technology.

And because Heath RMLD-IS is an infrared device and does not require bump testing or calibration, hence it delivers significant time savings and capital benefits to the astute customer.

The Heath RMLD-IS is available to purchase or hire through Heath Pipeline Services.  Training services are also available.
