Ashtead Technology has announced a new partnership with Gas Data, expanding the range of applications for its gas monitors (available for either purchase or rental).

The new Gas Data portable gas analysers include the GFM 400 series analysers, the Gazoscan and the Inspectra. With these instruments Ashtead’s customers can access a complete choice of technologies for the measurement of methane and other gases in applications like landfill, biogas, contaminated land, petrochem, gas leaks, gas utilities and wastewater.

All of these instruments are able to measure methane, which is a powerful greenhouse gas, (around 30 times stronger than CO2), and the subject of urgent global initiatives to lower emissions. Methane is the main component of natural gas and biogas, so it is essential for leaks to be identified and prevented. The Gazoscan employs a laser to identify leaks and sources over long distances, and the Inspectra fulfils a similar function but with a sampling rod and/or wheel for surveying and pinpointing gas leaks.

The GFM 400 series are able to measure a wider range of gases and enable users to choose the instrument that best suits their application. For example, the GFM 406 has an option for hydrogen measurement, which is increasingly being introduced into natural gas supplies. Other options include LEL, O2, CO and H2S; the latter being useful in odour investigations at petrochemical and wastewater plants.

With a fixed configuration measuring and logging CH4, CO2, O2, H2S and CO, the GFM 426 is ideal for landfill applications. The GFM 436 offers similar capability with the additional capacity to analyse VOCs; offering the versatility of use in both landfill and contaminated land applications. Josh Thomas, Senior Sales Manager at Ashtead Technology said the portable, ATEX certified Gas Data instruments “perfectly complement” the firm’s range.
