I&C Expo 2011 and Golf Tournament - August 18, 2011

Thursday, February 24, 2011

This is an excellent program on ultrasonic gas leak detection, a subject that surprisingly few I&C people know much about, yet safety in the workplace and product quality often depends on keeping gas secure. If you are working around pressurized gas of any kind, wouldn't you like to know if your leak detector is doing its job? Or if it is installed in the proper location to detect light gases like hydrogen, or heavy petrochemical vapors.

The outline of this timely presentation is below:

1. History of ultrasonic gas leak detection
2. Application areas
3. What do we need to detect and when?
4. Ultrasonic leak detection vs. conventional gas detection
5. What is a Leak?
6. How does ultrasonic gas leak detection work?
7. The detector's main features
8. Detection range
9. Installation practices
10. Maintenance, testing and calibration
11. References
12. Case studies
