Retaining all the features that has made it stand out from other detectors – ultralight weight, easy handling, methane selectivity, high sensitivity, capability of detection through glass – the latest GAZOSCAN offers new functionalities and over 100m (330ft) range of detection capacity that represent a major step forward for conducting natural gas leak inspections safely and efficiently or emergency interventions in hazardous circumstances and hard-to-access areas.

With a doubled detection distance, the GAZOSCAN fully complies with the US Emergency Guidebook recommendation of a 100m (330ft) safe distance from leakage.

Its three measuring speeds – ‘Fast, Medium and Slow’ – and with a shortest response time of 0.1s – this enables rapid locating of methane gas before determining with precision the source as well as the concentration level of the leak.

Remote targeting with precision is now extremely easy. The built-in sight on the detector’s barrel will show a red dot to help hit the target point at a distance, even in bright sunlight. The targeted point, aim indicator, red dot and large display screen, all remain within the user’s field of sight.

The device is calibration free and intrinsically safe. Bluetooth enables data transfer in real-time and, as an added option, the device can connect to the GAZOSURVEY app on the operator’s mobile phone, thus facilitating GPS leak localization and survey traceability, note entry as well as picture capturing and storage.

‘The first reactions to the new GAZOSCAN have been extremely positive not only across the gas industry, but fire brigades and even police force departments have shown a great interest’, says Alan VIDAL, GAZOMAT’s Managing Director. ‘They can see all the equipment’s potential for securing their teams’ interventions. Identifying rapidly any explosion hazard before penetrating a site on fire makes a tremendous difference for emergency responders. Quite frankly, it is more often than not a life and death issue’, underlines Alan VIDAL.
