What is a methane sniffer?
Normally, customers install a detector on a fixed place in the plant. This detector detect levels of methane in air in % LEL (Lower Explosive Limit) levels or in percent by volume levels. We install the detector on or in the robot, so it can travel around. First of all, this saves a lot of detectors and the maintenance costs on these detectors are low. Secondly, we detect emission on ppm level. One of the detectors, which most customers use, is the Falco VOC – Ion Science 1.1. With this detector you can find very small emissions.
