Detector Electronics Corp. introduced FlexSonic™ Acoustic Gas Leak Detector designed to withstand harsh environments from arctic to tropical conditions. The FlexSonic™ detector analyzes 24 discrete ultrasonic bands, ignoring nuisance ultrasonic sources. A high-fidelity microphone continuously monitors for the distinct ultrasound emitted by pressurized gas leaks across the widest spectrum of frequencies.
Unlike traditional non-contact gas leak detectors, the FlexSonic™ detector can be programmed to ignore background noises, discerning between gas leaks and environmental noises, such as metal-on-metal contact, fans, machinery, or vehicles. For noisy applications, the FlexSonic™ detector learns both regularly occurring and random sounds, detecting the actual acoustic gas leak ‘signature.’
