Martin Instrument now offering UAVs that can detect methane gas in natural gas lines, tanks, gas wells and landfills

AUSTIN, TexasNov. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Martin Instrument and Microdrones is excited to announce the release of a new professional aerial methane detection solution, the mdTector1000 CH4. It’s the newest fully integrated aerial methane inspection package for the microdrones multi-rotor UAV, built for professionals responsible for methane gas infrastructure. 

“For our oil and gas customers, we are excited to now provide an all new payload, the mdTector,” said Martin Instrument Vice-President, Mike Minick, adding, “The fully integrated aerial methane inspection package gives the end user everything they need at their fingertips to accurately and efficiently retrieve data, safer than ever before.”

The mdTector1000 CH4 has a Pergam gas sensor, mounted and integrated with the Microdrones md4-1000 UAV.  In real time, you will be able to see aerial shots of what you are detecting with the laser sensor. The sturdy carbon-fiber built UAV puts an end to placing people where they don’t belong. It can easily navigate terrain that’s too dangerous for traditional foot crews. Microdrones aircraft are well-known for being sturdy, stable and resistant to wind and weather, as well as dust and dampness; this allows you to fly wherever and whenever your job needs to be done.  

The mdTector1000 CH4 is versatile and can be used for:

  • natural gas line surveys
  • tank inspections
  • gas well testing
  • plant safety
  • landfill emission monitoring

Package benefits include:

  • low cost compared to the expense and risk of traditional gas detection methods
  • broad range of detection from 1-50,000 ppm x m
  • lightweight and easy to transport
  • easy to deploy and operate

Also comes with the Microdrones mdCockpit Android App, allowing you to maintain visualization in-flight. A special mdTector app allows you to visualize and present all post-flight data on one map.

Onsite demonstrations are available in Texas and Oklahoma. Call 512-282-4099 or visit www.martininstrument.com to schedule your demo. For more information, contact customerservice@martininstrument.com.
