Q.E.D. Environmental Systems, Inc., a leading manufacturer of innovative environmental products and subsidiary of Graco Inc., announces Huberg instruments will now be available in the American markets through QED distribution.
Established in 1987, Huberg is known among industry professionals as a top manufacturer of safety instrumentation systems for gas and water mains supply. Through the years, Huberg has provided customers with well-engineered products, continuous innovation, professional information and consulting, as well as customized services, all to guarantee the highest quality and reliability. QED acquired Huberg in 2019, and will now distribute Huberg products to new American markets.
Used by leading natural gas mains distribution network operators (DNOs) and gas utility and service companies, the Huberg product range focuses on equipment for the survey of gas distribution networks and operator protection in hazardous environments. The Huberg product portfolio offers solutions for both vehicular-based technology for roadside surveys and hand-held devices for accurately identifying and pinpointing leaks. QED has fully integrated the Huberg sales and service operations into its Dexter, Michigan organization, while design and manufacturing is taking place in its new UK plant.
“Our new state-of-the-art production and calibration facility in the United Kingdom is now the design and manufacturing center for all Huberg products since our acquisition. We are excited to expand the reach of Huberg’s legacy of excellent service and engineered solutions into the Americas,” said Peter Bloem, Huberg Business Unit Manager for QED.
A highlight of the Huberg by QED product portfolio is the state-of-the-art LASER OneTM portable natural gas leak analyzer with LASER spectroscopy. This highly-sensitive detector offers all of the advantages of optical detection in a highly compact and portable device. The instrument provides precise and reliable findings when detecting methane leaks, with accurate detection of leaks of down to 0.5 ppm in a response time of 2.5 seconds. It is not sensitive to cross-gas contamination and does not require a gas cylinder for operation, which makes it ideal for the detection of natural gas leaks in underground natural gas distribution networks. The LASER One instrument is ATEX and IECEX-certified for safe operation in Zone 1 areas. Proprietary software offers DNOs the ability to integrate into their data reporting systems.
