IRwin® Methane Leak Detector is an innovative, portable natural gas detector for easy gas pipe survey and gas leak detection. It is developed to comply with many national regulations and work procedures. 

IRwin SX-models are certified for use in Zone 0 and US counterpart Class I Division 1. 
Rating is: Ex ia IIC T3, EPL Ga. Additional marking:  II 1G for ATEX and Intrinsically Safe Class I, Division 1, Groups B, C and D, T3, for the US.

The integrated proprietary infrared sensor system (patents pending) has a fast reaction and short recovery time. The system prevents false leak alarms and ensures correct and fast leak evaluation. The specially developed Gas Chromatograph (GC) and IR-sensor combination allows fast distinction between swamp gas and natural gas. The IRwin GC gives fast test results, even at low ethane concentrations, from 1000 ppm methane leaks. IRwin is able to measure methane according to the traditional operating modes required by DVGW G 465-4, such as "Inspection above-ground" and "Measuring bar holes." For simplified use, the instrument also features a Universal Mode that combines most of the modes available into one. The range is from 1 ppm to 100 Vol. %. The Ex-certified models can also measure in the range 1-100 %LEL methane.

IRwin Methane Leak Detector - together with an innovative probe system specially designed for natural gas leak detection - allows for easy and effective survey of gas pipelines.
