Analysis instrumentation manufacturer QED Environmental Systems has launched its next generation of Huberg METREX gas detection instruments.
The new METREX is ATEX-rated and designed for leak detection in natural gas distribution networks.
The new device is ideal for first responder technicians who handle suspected gas leaks and other key applications include bar hole gas measurement testing, purged gas lines and enclosed space monitoring.
The systemis significantly reduced in size compared to its predecessor and is also 50% lighter.
It features 10-hour battery life and an easy to read and navigate LCD display. Gas measurements are displayed on screen to the user and easy to understand. The IP65 certified ingress rating adds to the robustness of the instrument when operating it in adverse weather conditions.
Unlike traditional flame ionisation detectors, the new METREX does not require a technician to carry calibration gas cylinders as it can perform a user calibration in air.
QED’s natural gas business unit manager Peter Bloem said: “We are excited to expand and improve the Huberg product range. The release of a vastly improved Huberg product like the METREX in such a short space of time highlights QED’s engineering and production capabilities.”
