Emerson Receives Major Orders for Ultrasonic Gas Detection Technology

Emerson Process Management, a global business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), has received orders totaling approximately $5.8 million for ultrasonic gas detection technology that will be used to monitor for leaks at onshore and offshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities in Australia.

The offshore application is believed to be the world’s largest single installation of this technology.

The leak detectors will provide an important first line of defense, alerting facility operators to gas leaks that not only affect their operations, but can also threaten the safety of personnel and equipment. Unlike traditional gas-sensor devices, the ultrasonic technology provided by Emerson does not wait until leaking gas reaches the sensor or accumulates to dangerous concentrations. Instead, it uses ultra-sensitive acoustic sensors to constantly monitor wide areas for the ultra-high-frequency sound caused by escaping pressurized gas, instantly detecting leaks of all gas types without being affected by bad weather, wind or leak direction, or gas dilution.

“LNG operations play a growing role in energy distribution, especially in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Steve Sonnenberg, president of Emerson Process Management. “Ultrasonic gas detection is one of the many ways Emerson is helping LNG operators manage these complex and ever-larger facilities as safely as possible.”
