SENSIT® IRED is an Infrared Ethane Detector for fast and accurate gas analysis.

The SENSIT® IRED is an ethane detector, patented by using infrared absorption spectroscopy to determine the presence of ethane in a methane sample.

Furthermore, this technology detects 250ppb ethane in a 50ppm methane sample, enabling field analysis of even the smallest samples for natural gas detection.

Ethane is the key “fingerprint” contained in pipeline gas and typically ranges from <2-25% by volume. The SENSIT® IRED is a field tool that produces accurate results within minutes. Rather than hours or days if other methods are used.

Ethane Specific – IRED filters out other gases.
Ideal for low concentration methane readings.
Displays 0-999 ppb ethane
Displays 1.0-500 ppm ethane
