Detecting Methane Leaks from up to 20 Metres away in Seconds

The organisers of WWEM 2010 (Telford: 10th–11th November) have announced a new programme of workshops dedicated to gas monitoring.

WWEM 2010 is the world’s largest environmental monitoring event and will offer visitors a choice of over 70 free Workshops. 12 of these have been organised by the Council of Gas Detection and Environmental Monitoring (CoGDEM) and will focus on issues such as detection technology, sampling, calibration, interpretation of data and the benefits to be gained from monitoring toxic, combustible or explosive gases.

Leigh Greenham, Director of CoGDEM, says: “Gas detection is an important part of risk assessment to help provide protection for workers in all industries, particularly in the water sector. Many of our members are leaders in the field of gas detection and their technical staff will be available to provide training on how to operate, calibrate and maintain instruments cost-effectively.”

An exhibition will run on both days of the event featuring the majority of the world’s leading providers of test and monitoring instrumentation and services.
Entry to the exhibition and workshops will be free (saving a daily admission fee of £20) to all pre-registered visitors, who will also be entitled to free onsite parking, free lunches and refreshments on both days of the event.

A number of new products will also be on show in the new gas detection zone. For example, Shawcity will show the PhoCheck Tiger next generation Photo Ionisation Detector for VOC monitoring, TVOC System+ Environmental Monitoring System for VOCs, the NXP Plug and Play Fixed Gas Detection System and the very latest GasClam unit for borehole gas monitoring which can now also detect H2S, CO and VOCs.

Finnish gas detection company Detector, will celebrate its first exhibition in the UK with a 20% discount for orders placed as a result from enquiries made during the exhibition.

GfG will showcase the next generation G460 portable multi-gas detector, which can incorporate up to 7 different gases simultaneously including technologies such as PID for VOC detection, and IR for hydrocarbon detection at %LEL and %VOL levels.
