Gas leak detection is an important part of every
plant safety program. Many industrial processes require the
use of potentially toxic gases, and other processes may
generate hazardous gases as a byproduct. Such hazards can
be managed through careful equipment maintenance and
regular monitoring for early signs of leakage.
The Cool Air Inc. LBW-HHS portable gas leak
detector is a versatile tool for performing regular leak
checks in gas storage areas, around process equipment
and piping, or in confined spaces prior to entry. Designed
for easy one-hand operation, the detector contains an
internal sample pump and a flexible sampling wand to
allow pinpoint location of the source of leakage. A large
character display insures that measured values are easily
visible, and a back-light for the display insures
readability in low or no light conditions.
Sensors used in the LBW-HHS are the
newest miniaturized smart sensor modules. Each sensor
module is actually a sensor, amplifier, and memory
module in one compact package. Because of this design,
sensor modules can be calibrated independently and
simply plugged into any detector for immediate use.
When installed in a detector, calibration data is loaded
into the microprocessor so that no adjustments are
needed. The result is that a detector can, for example, go
from phosgene measurement to ammonia measurement in
less than one minute.
LBW-HHS Gas Detectors are supplied in a padded
carrying case for easy storage and transport. Space is
provided for an extra battery plus up to two sensor keepers,
which means up to 8 extra sensors ready for immediate use.
