Net Safety Monitoring has introduced an ultrasonic gas leak detector to provide wide-area coverage in any hazardous-area application where pressurised gas is present.

The Banshee343 gas leak detector is designed to offer reliable gas detection, whether toxic and/or combustible.

Ultrasonic gas leak detection is commonly used together with traditional fixed detection technologies as a first line of defence against dangerous gas leak situations in oil and gas installations.

Acoustic (ultrasonic) gas leak detectors can be found in a variety of applications.

Ultrasonic gas leak detection technology offers several performance considerations: it does not have to wait until a gas concentration has accumulated to potentially dangerous concentrations; it offers a wide area of coverage; it does not require a gas cloud to eventually make physical contact with a sensor; and the response is instantaneous for all gas types.

The Banshee343 ultrasonic gas leak detector only triggers an alarm when inaudible ultrasound is detected (between 25-100kHz), which is only produced with the release of highly pressurised gas.

This makes for reliable and efficient performance by the detection system as there is no poisoning of sensors, it never requires field calibration and all background noise is effectively filtered.

The analogue, relay or Modbus outputs can communicate directly with any existing plant control system (DCS, PL/PLC, FireandGas panel or SCADA).

The Banshee343 also offers features such as: factory tuned sensors that are calibrated for life; four piezoelectric sensor heads sealed in a tough ceramic housing; no moving parts; a wider and more reliable coverage area – 20m radius, about 1,600m2 from centre; wide operational temperature; and the Soniccal diagnostic system, which automatically cleans the sensor head and gives a ‘true’ ultrasonic broadband self-test every 15 minutes to confirm continuous operation.
