Newly Updated GAZOSCAN™


GAZOMAT, specialized in gas leak detection systems, introduces an enhanced version of its hand-held laser-based remote methane detector, the GAZOSCAN.

Keeping all the features that made it stand out from most competitive brands - ultralight weight, easy handling, methane selectivity, high sensitivity, detection through glass – the latest GAZOSCAN offers new functionalities and over 100m (330ft) detection capacities that represent a major step forward for conducting safely and efficiently natural gas leak inspections or emergency interventions in hazardous circumstances and hard-to-access areas.

With a doubled detection distance, the GAZOSCAN fully complies with the US Emergency Guidebook recommendation of a 100m (330ft) safe distance from leakage.
Its three measuring speeds - Fast, Medium and Slow – with a shortest response time of 0.1s – allows for rapid spotting of methane gas, before determining with precision the source and concentration level of the leak.

Aiming remotely with precision is now extremely easy. The built-in sight on the detector’s barrel will show a red dot to help hit the target point at a distance, even in bright sunlight. Desired target, aim indicator, red dot and large display screen, all remain within the user’s field of sight.

The device is calibration free, intrinsically safe. Bluetooth allows for data transfer in real-time and, the device can connect (optional) to GAZOSURVEY app on the operator’s mobile phone enabling GPS leak localization and survey traceability, note entry as well as picture capturing and storage.

First reactions to the New GAZOSCAN device are extremely positive across the gas industry, but not only. Fire brigades and even police force departments show a great interest, says Alan VIDAL, GAZOMAT General Manager. They can see all the equipment’s potential for securing their teams’ interventions. Identifying fast any explosion hazard before penetrating a site on fire makes a tremendous difference for emergency responders. Quite frankly, it is more often than not a life and death issue, underlines Alan VIDAL.

Retirement time for Claude Prat!

After 10 years of devoted service to GAZOMAT, Claude Prat has retired. Claude's dedication helped GAZOMAT introduce new products and expand to new regions around the globe creating strong partnerships.

As a young physicochemical engineer freshly graduated from the prestigious National Higher Engineering School of Chemistry in Rennes, France, (ENSCR), Claude integrated into the gas industry, where he made his career working from technical to top management roles.

When talking amongst the GAZOMAT team and questioned about his plans for the future, Claude surprised us all by saying: "I am going to grow vegetables".

One thing is for sure: if Claude embarks upon this new activity with the same energy and enthusiasm he showed during his professional life, we may soon find some of his produce in our supermarkets. So be on the lookout!

Please join us in wishing Claude Prat all the best in his retirement life, enjoying his family and free time!
