  • The Dangers of Gas Leaks

    One of the scariest things I remember from my childhood was when we had a gas leak in our house. The alarm went off and we all had to hurry outside while my dad called the fire department to come check it out and make sure nothing dangerous was going to happen to us or the house. When you are little, anything that disturbs your night of sleep and forces you to leave your warm bed is an unwelcome thing, especially if it is something as scary as an invisible...

  • Prevention and Prepared

    All over the news recently we have seen the fires that are running wild in the western United States. The fires are raging so fiercely that the Air Force has been called in to assist the problem. The slightest spark in such dry and hot weather is able to ignite and spread rapidly, destroying everything in its path. And while this may be a situation that cannot be planned for, no one could have predicted them to rage for so long, the simple fires or sparks that occur can be...

  • Flue Gases and the Need for Gas Analyzers

    Flue gases are emitted into the world regularly. Living in Michigan, our fireplace is constantly burning in the winter months. Flue gases are able to escape with every fire burned, along with every drive to work in the car each morning. In addition to these there are industry stacks that contribute massive amounts of flue emissions. Flue gases emitted include nitrogen, carbon dioxide, particulates, oxygen, water vapor, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides. Some of these gases can be harsh on the environment and hazardous to human health. For...

  • No More Waiting for Lassie, Gas Detectors

    Stories of homes exploding or people almost losing their lives because of gas exposure are going down, but still occur far more than they should. When it comes to gas leak detection, you can never be too careful. Hundreds of people lose their lives to carbon monoxide poisoning each year. To prevent this from happening to you, or those around you, strict monitoring must be put in place. By simply placing a gas detector in your home, you can greatly reduce the risk of being exposed to this toxin. Gas...

  • The Importance of Gas Detectors

    Leak detectors are important in any climate, season and time of year, but it does seem that they become increasingly important during the cold holiday months. In these months, people seem to use their stoves to cook and their heat to warm up their homes for family parties and events. The excessive use of these appliances is expected during these months, and it is important to know the safety measures and precautions that could save your home from a unforeseen disaster during these happy times. One of these disasters could...

  • Leak Detectors will Save your Life and your Business

    by Jenny Knodell, IQS Editor In your home and on the job, gas leaks are always something to worry about. If gone undetected, leaks of all kinds could do serious harm and put people's health at risk. Some leaks could result in an explosion or death, while others waste money and create unsafe working conditions. Regardless, a gas leak, whether it be natural gas, Freon, or air, causes all sorts of unwanted problems. But don't start panicking just yet instead of putting your family or employees at risk, wasting your...

Industry Information

Gas Detectors

Gas leak detectors are used to pinpoint the source of a leak. Gas detectors use tracer gases like hydrogen and helium to find the leak. After filling the chamber with helium or a hydrogen/nitrogen mix, the gas loss is measured with a mass spectrometer that detects the helium or hydrogen. Gas and vapor leaks are common in virtually any industry. In fact, just about anything that uses gas will likely leak.

A gas leak detector is used to determine the amount and composition of the gas being leaked from a machine or system. It also monitors the amount leaking so that no potential danger to the equipment or the health of individuals in the vicinity occurs. One other concerning factor, is how fast the leak occurs, whether it be a small amount by the second or a small amount every thousand years. The corresponding action to deal with the leak cannot happen without the gas detector warning and monitoring information. Occasionally gas leak detectors will work in conjunction with other gas analyzing tools, such as leak testers and gas analyzers, which normally precede the use of a leak detector. There are many types of gas leak detectors. Mass spectrometry is one method used by a leak detector to measure gas loss and is a complicated scientific process. To put it simply, it uses a magnetic field to gauge the ion content in the air. By measuring the mass-to-charge ratio of a gas through the ion reactions, it is able to identify if something is leaking and what specifically the substance is.

Gas leaks can be found via electronic, chemical, and sound-sensitive technologies. Most leak detectors are hand-held devices that are programmed to monitor specific conditions. The mobility of a leak detector is important because of the tight and complex networks of piping that are sometimes used to house a gas or a liquid. Most methods of gas leak detection are operator dependant, although they also run by way of an automatic pump. The halogen leak detector is one example. Different types of detectors are used for specific duties, such as the actual gas detection at the spot of the leak, the amount that is coming out, and the type of gas. Sometimes a tracer gas, like helium or a mix of hydrogen and nitrogen, is used to help aid in the detection of other gases.
