The INSPECTRA® LASER is a natural gas leak portable analyzer with laser spectroscopy. This highly sensitive detector offers all the advantages of optical detection in a highly compact and portable device, giving you precise and reliable findings when detecting methane leaks.

  • Total selectivity to methane
  • Extended measurement range, from 1ppm to 100% gas volume
  • Methane high sensitivity, below 1 ppm
  • ATEX certified, can be used safely indoors and outdoors as well as in hazardous areas
  • User-friendly
  • Minimal maintenance
  • Traceability of surveys with the NGS survey software installed on a tablet and controlling the integrated GPS receiver
  • Light weight, compact design for maximum working comfort (2,7 kg with batteries)
  • Maximum operational autonomy: power supplied by rechargeable batteries
