LaserMethane Smart

The LaserMethane Smart is a compact and portable methane gas detector with a camera to shoot an inspection point. Suitable those working in areas with gas distribution systems, underground gas storage, gas distribution station, gas processing plant, gas compression and gas storage.


The next generation LaserMethane and inspection management service that helps manage leaks until repairs are complete. The LaserMethane is capable of detecting methane leaks at a distance up to 30m, it enables companies to quickly survey multiple leak risks, and safely, without having to enter a hazardous area, allowing workers to quickly and effectively manage the entire maintenance process. Now with a camera to shoot an inspection point with a measured value and communication device that automatically sends output to the cloud server.

LaserMethane Smart Advantages

    • Precise measurement locations – measurement values tied to a captured image (measuring point, value and time stamp)
    • Reliability – little maintenance with self-check or automatic calibration on start-up
    • Remote detection – searching range of 30m removes safety risk for operators
    • Quick response – allows for swift searching
    • Persuasive evidence – laser co-axis digital camera records photos and videos and stores them on a cloud server
    • User friendly – point and shoot technology with little or no training
    • Clear laser – green laser pointer is visible in bright sunshine

How It Works?

The detector measures the characteristics of methane, which is absorbed into the laser beam (infrared rays) of a specific wavelength (infrared absorption technology). The directed laser reflects back a diffused beam from the target, where the device will receive the reflected beam and measure the absorptivity of the beam, that is then calculated into methane column density (ppm-m).
