Gassonic Develops World’s First Gas Leak Simulation Tool

Gassonic has developed the world’s first gas leak simulation tool. The new Simulator can be accessed in a trial version on Gassonic’s website. The Simulator makes it possible to experience why ultrasonic gas leak detectors are widely used for quick gas leak detection in challenging conditions found on most outdoor oil and gas installations on- and offshore.

As the Simulator shows, the major advantage of implementing ultrasonic gas leak detectors for fixed detection of high-pressure gas leaks is the fact that the system responds to the distinctive ultrasound created by the leak. This means that the detectors pick up gas leaks at the speed of sound without having to wait for the gas to accumulate and physically enter a point sensor head (conventional point detector) or within a narrow beam (open path gas detector). The acoustic detection method is thereby also unaffected by unknown factors such as wind conditions, gas dilution and leak direction.

Gassonic is the world leader in ultrasonic gas leak detectors serving the industry since the mid 1990s. We have more than twelve years’ experience developing and perfecting ultrasonic gas leak detectors for instant gas leak detection and full failsafe operation. As part of the General Monitors family of companies you will find local representation throughout the world.
