Sensit PMD Portable Methane Detector from Sensit

Sensit PMD Portable Methane Detector is a small, lightweight, battery operated instrument used to survey, pinpoint and grade leaks wherever they occur. The PMD is among the best performing and lowest cost optical instruments that can be used for both walking and vehicle applications. The PMD is methane selective and filters out other gases in ppm range. It has high sensitivity of 1 ppm to detect leaks faster. The detection range of 0-100% volume allows for faster leak detection.
