New generation of gas leak detection instrumentation

Gas detection and analysis instrumentation manufacturer QED Environmental Systems Ltd has launched the next generation of the Huberg METREX gas detection instrument.

The new METREX is ATEX rated and designed for pre-localization, localization and classification of leaks in natural gas distribution networks.  A robust design and intuitive user interface ensures the new METREX is ideal for first responder technicians who handle suspected gas leaks. Other key applications include bar hole gas measurement testing, purged gas lines and enclosed space monitoring.

The new METREX is significantly reduced in size compared to its predecessor and is also 50% lighter. It features ten-hour battery life and an easy to read and navigate LCD display. Gas measurements are displayed on screen to the user and easy to understand. The IP65 certified ingress rating adds to the robustness of the instrument when operating it in adverse weather conditions.

ATEX certified (II 2 G Ex db ib IIB T4 Gb) the new METREX has been classified to be safely operated in designated hazardous locations. Unlike traditional flame ionization detectors, the new METREX does not require a technician to carry calibration gas cylinders as the METREX can perform a user calibration in air.
