Smart Gas Sensors For Use Across Industries
Last week at Sensors Expo in San Jose, California, NevadaNano displayed its full line of sensors. The company announced the release of the new MPS Family of Gas Sensors designed for broad application where combustible gas safety and gas leak detection are critical. The sensors are the first to accurately detect, quantify and classify a broad array of flammable or explosive gases using a single calibration. The three sensors are designed for industrial use and can accurately detect flammable, methane, and LGW refrigerant gasses.
NevadaNano’s detection technology is the first new approach to flammable gas detection in over 40 years. The sensors’ innovative technology brings enhanced reliability and performance to gas detection in industrial safety, oil and gas processing, HVAC refrigerants, valve and gasket monitoring, mining, and public safety, among other applications. The new family of sensors features its Series 4 format and pin which is smaller and lighter than previous models, as well as compatible with existing detection devices.
The sensors are more energy efficient, accurate, and flexible for gases detected than traditional catalytic bead sensors or NDIR combustible gas sensors. NevadaNano launched the initial form factor of its sensor in October 2018.
Thanks to its long-term stability and reliability, the sensor has a lower cost of ownership than catalytic bead type sensors. The MPS Flammable Gas Sensor will not “poison” or stop working when exposed to common industrial chemicals, eliminating the need for frequent, costly manual calibrations. More importantly, workers can count on the reliability of the sensors to continuously ensure a safer workplace.
