Our Hardware – Innovative, reliable, accurate.

  • The gas monitor is CSA special acceptance approved for Class 1, Division 2 groups
    B, C & D (explosive areas).
  • The rugged, durable, aluminum enclosure is explosion proof and withstands the tough environment of drilling rig operations.
  • The wireless modem’s built-in security protects your data transfer.

Wireless Benefits

  • Increases safety by eliminating the potential entry of poisonous gases in the geologist’s work area.
  • Powerful radios are built to military specifications, software encrypted and operate with a non-line-of-sight of 8 km (5 miles).
  • Saves space in the geologist’s work area.
  • Safe, easy and quick to rig up.
  • Less risk of freezing in colder weather with the reduction of poly lines.
  • Gas content is read almost instantly increasing accuracy and safety.

Infrared Advantages

  • Detects trace amounts of hydrocarbons.
  • Provides excellent thin-bed resolution and fracture analysis.
  • Has no known contaminants and works in the presence of moisture.
  • Increased repeatability and sensor life.
  • Optical filters allow detection of gases within a precise wave length.
  • Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen, Hydrogen Sulphide, mud additives, etc. do not affect sensor readings.
  • Infrared sensors are not susceptible to drift as are older technologies like Catalytic Combustion (CC) and TCD sensors.
  • Infrared sensors do not require a dilution factor or ‘algorithm’ as do other technologies.
  • Non-destructive sampling method (no combustion of gas sample).
  • No carrier gas or Transportation of Dangerous Goods are required.
  • One second sampling provides increased accuracy for geosteering.
