IRwin® Methane Leak Detector

The IRwin® Methane Leak Detector is a portable methane leak detector for a fast and easy survey of gas pipelines. This unit can operate on different surfaces and situations during survey, is highly sensitive, responds quickly and has a short recovery time. The IRwin® is lightweight and durable, making it the perfect solution for days spent outdoors surveying. State of the art technology allows for fast data collection, secure storage, and updated analysis. IRwin® provides an integrated GPS to minimize operator risk and provide accurate data collection, while Bluetooth capabilities ensure faster download of data and enhance analysis through electronic grids and surveys.

 

The Irwin natural gas detector has the following key differentiators from our competitors:

 

  • Intrinsically Safe
  • Bluetooth interface to download the survey results to a laptop or other compatible device.
  • Built-in Integrated GPS for tracking your surveys with the date and time stamp
  • Chromatography Analysis – Ability to differentiators between natural gas and swamp gas (Ethane and Methane Analysis)
  • Durable design for tough environments

Description

IRwin® Methane Leak Detector is an innovative, portable natural gas detector for easy gas pipe survey and gas leak detection. The integrated proprietary infrared sensor system (patents pending) has a fast reaction and short recovery time. The system prevents false leak alarms and ensures correct and fast leak evaluation. The specially developed Gas Chromatograph (GC) and IR-sensor combination allows fast distinction between swamp gas and natural gas from all known natural gas sources. The IRwin® GC gives fast test results, even at low ethane concentration.

Intrinsically Safe

The IRwin® SX-models are Intrinsically Safe certified for use in Zone 0, classification Ex II 1G, Ex ia IIC T3 Ga, Intrinsically Safe Class I, Division 1, Groups A, B, C and D, T3.

Fast Gas Analysis even at Low Ethane Concentrations

The specially developed gas chromatograph (GC) and sensor combination allows near real time distinction between swamp gas and natural gas. This helps operators to rapidly determine if the detected gas comes from a leaking pipe, from other natural gas sources or from swamp gas. The GC inside IRwin® delivers fast test results, even at low ethane (from 0.5%) concentrations.

The data saved after a GC Ethane Analysis contains data for when and where the sample was taken. The data can be retrieved by the IRwin® APP (Windows application) that will create a PDF report for the analysis. You can save a large number of analysis data files for later report generation.

Survey Tracking with Integrated GPS

Documenting survey work minimizes risks for operator mistakes. Thanks to the integrated GPS, the route walked by the operator will be visualized on geographic information systems (GIS) for easy survey tracking. GPS data and survey measurements are transferred from the instrument to a computer wireless via Bluetooth® technology.

Bluetooth Communications

The Bluetooth capability of the IRwin allows you to easily transfer your log data and other information your computer.

  1. Transfer your log files from the device to your computer
  2. Delete unnecessary files from on your Irwin from your computer
  3. Real-time streaming from leak detector to computer
