Heath Consultants releases PPB advanced mobile leak detection system

(UI) — Heath’s Discover advanced mobile leak detection (AMLD) system can aid in reducing methane emissions through the identification of gas leaks on aging distribution infrastructure with negligible false positives and negatives compared to competing technologies. It can be used for upstream, midstream and downstream in super emitter mode to reduce methane emissions by estimating emission quantification.

Detection Technology

Discover AMLD is an open path system utilizing Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS). Resolution is in the part per billion (ppb) range for both methane and ethane. Ethane detection aids in determining whether a detection is pipeline gas or naturally occurring biogas. Sensitivity levels, along with a proven detection algorithm, can detect and distinguish between a pipeline gas leak verses a non-pipeline gas leak, such as sewer, landfill and soil/biogas indications.

System Components

Discover AMLD consists of a vehicle equipped with the detector, GPS, anemometer and proprietary software loaded onto the vehicle’s computer/tablet. All components were designed to require minimal modifications to the vehicle and utilize the latest in wireless technology.

Analytics & Interface

The Discover AMLD analytic method improves the reduction of false positives and increases the accuracy of detection. Field testing has shown a greater than 95% probability of gas leak detection. Discover AMLD’s Graphical User Interface (GUI) streams your data directly to the secured cloud which can analyze and process the data in real-time to produce actionable reports.
