New Portable Fluorescent Leak Detector

General Monitors (USA) is pleased to announce that the Gassonic Observer is now FM and CSA certified. FM and CSA certification assures customers that the Gassonic Observer has been evaluated through independent scientific testing and found safe and reliable. FM Approvals and CSA International are leading providers of product testing and certification that test products for compliance with hazardous locations and product performance standards.

Ultrasonic gas leak detection adds an important layer of protection to General Monitors’ gas and flame detectors. The detection technology enhances gas detection efficiency by producing sensors that quickly respond to the ultrasonic noise generated by escaping gas. Ultrasonic gas leak detectors can detect gas leaks regardless of ventilation rate, gas dilution, or the direction of the leak – and without the gas having to make physical contact with a sensor element. The instruments are the ideal choice for rapid detection of pressurized gas leaks in open and ventilated areas.

The Gassonic Observer features a robust microphone and a detection radius of up to 20 meters at a leak rate of 0.1 kg/s. In addition, the detector offers the Senssonicâ„¢ integrated acoustic self-test, which periodically verifies the integrity of the electronic circuitry and the operation of the acoustic sensor. The detector is FM certified to IEC 61508 as SIL 2 suitable and is also approved under ATEX, C-UL and IECEx norms.
