The Open Path (OPX) Head Assembly consists of Open Path (OPX) Measurement Head, Retro-Reflector, and Cable Kit.
Open Path Laser Gas Detectors are used primarily for these applications:
- Leak Detection: Provides immediate and unambiguous detection of fugivitive gas releases in industrial safety applications.
- Ambient Monitoring: Continuously monitor gas concentrations accurately and reliably over open area and/or point sources for environmental monitoring applications.
This technology is also most commonly referred to as Open Path Gas Detection (OPGD) or Line of Sight (LOS).
This particular technology is ideal for detecting or monitoring for a number of different Toxic, Combustible, Hazardous, or Greenhouse Gases. The most popular combustible gases include: Methane (CH4), Acetylene (C2H2), and Ethylene (C2H4)
Boreal Laser products are widely adopted in industrial applications primarily for its large area coverage, fast speed of response, and maintenance friendly operation. With Open Path Gas Detectors (OPGD), you’re more likely to detect the presence of a leak than compared to slow to respond traditional point detectors.
