LaserMethane Mini



LaserMethane mini (LMm) is a compact handheld detector for the detection of methane gas at a safe distance (0-100m). Utilising laser technology, methane leaks are located by pointing the laser beam towards the suspected leak, or along the survey line. This revolutionary technology removes the need to access elevated places, reducing cost and improving the speed of leak detection activities. The LMm methane gas detector is ideal for use in industrial, commercial and research environments, anywhere that methane could be present and in need of locating or monitoring.

LMm is easy to operate and requires no maintenance. An automatic self check during start-up ensures consistent performance and reliability every time units are turned on.  The green laser guide light is highly visible even under strong sunlight simplifying the task of locating leaks.

Remote detection

  • Detects at up to 30ms distant – keeps operators out of harms way
  • Detects at up to 100m with reflector – hard-to-reach areas at height or behind barriers can be monitored
  • Green guide laser light – clear visibility of survey point, even in bright sun light

User friendly

  • Point and shoot technology – required little or no training and is easy to use
  • Compact and lightweight – truly portable, can fit in a pocket
  • Green guide laser light – clear visibility of where you are surveying even under strong sunlight
  • Wide OLED display – clear and bright readout on screen


  • No moving parts – little maintenance required
  • Self-check and automatic calibration on start-up – ensures accurate and reliable readings; removes the need to return for regular calibration
