MSA has unveiled the Ultima OPIR-5 Detector, an open-path IR gas detector that provides continuous monitoring of combustible gas concentrations at a path length of up to 150 meters (nearly 500 feet).

The Ultima OPIR-5 features a dual detection range (ppm*meter and LEL*meter), enabling sensitivity to both small and large gas leaks, and is performance approved for use in harsh environments, according to MSA.

MSA Ultima OPIR-5 detector

The system consists of an IR source and receiver that continuously monitor for methane in both the 0 to 5000 ppm•meter and 0 to 5 LEL•meter range. A 0 to 2000 ppm•meter and 0 to 1 LEL•meter range is also available for monitoring propane. A single detection beam improves accuracy and reduces drift, the company says.

Applications and Features

Applications include compressor stations, drilling and product platforms, LNG/LPG processing & storage facilities, petrochemical tanks and tank farms, wastewater treatment, train stations and tunnels, nuclear facilities, and oil and gas refineries and production platforms.

The OPIR-5 Detector is easily aligned using the digital display and adjustable mounting arms; it does not require any bulky setup equipment such as digital volt meters and handheld alignment aids, according to MSA. The OPIR-5 Detector’s sensitivity can be checked by placing a test gas film in front of the receiver.

The OPIR-5 Detector is calibrated at the factory and needs no further calibration. It also requires little maintenance save for a periodic visual inspection, test gas film check, and cleaning of the windows to assure dependable performance.

Sensor data and status information from the OPIR-5 Detector can be transmitted up to 9,000 feet to any industrial analog to digital (A/D) converter for use in multipoint computer-based monitoring.
