HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Heath Consultants Incorporated, an industry leader in the safety of natural gas infrastructure, has released our hand-held Remote Methane Leak Detector – Complete Solution (RMLD-CS™) to continue building on the success of our RMLD line that has sold thousands of units worldwide.
Users will recognize the potential for increased safety, significant productivity gains and time-savings with remote detection for utility service personnel, plant maintenance technicians and first responders to quickly scan an area for suspected leaks or emissions from up to 100 feet away. The remote detection allows users to satisfy increasing restrictions on air quality controls and increase success in reducing emissions from distribution and transmission pipeline networks, as well as above ground fugitive sources like valves.
The redesigned and streamlined RMLD-CS eliminated the separate receiver and transceiver and combined them into one ergonomic, hand-held instrument that is lightweight, portable and field rugged. The instrument is ideal for difficult to reach areas such as busy roadways, yards with dogs, fenced off areas, compressor stations, offshore platforms, plant/industrial inspections, gas processing plants, gas gathering, drilling sites, landfills, difficult terrains and more. It operates under a variety of field conditions including a wide temperature range, light rain and fog. It’s rugged enough to stand up to normal field use and operating conditions.
Heath acknowledged the need to further innovate and include features that would allow our customers to easily integrate the RMLD-CS into their current survey programs with built-in mobile App support, internal data logging, Bluetooth BLE, GPS and WiFi. These features permit users to seamlessly collect and integrate instrument data into their existing leak survey compliance tracking systems.
