Application Note LGD: Methane Leak Search


Leister Corporate, Axetris, Laser Gas Detection

Leak detection of methane – a major component of natural gas – along gas distribution networks is growing in importance. A large number of leak detection OEM’s have decided to design their solutions based on the Axetris LGD F200.

Detection of leaks along natural gas distribution networks

Natural gas is one of the most important fuel types in today’s world economy. A safe distribution of this fuel through long-range gas pipelines, as well as through city gas distribution networks, is absolutely essential. Unfortunately, a large part of such distribution networks are old and prone to leaks, with no reliable system in place to detect and repair gas leaks. Methane emissions from gas pipelines are a major safety hazard, as well as a serious challenge for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution.

Tunable Diode Laser Spectroscopy (TDLS) is fast becoming a very popular method to detect methane due to key advantages such as quick response time, high selectivity, exceptional accuracy and lower cost of ownership than traditional NDIR or FID technologies.
