The Extech EzFlex Combustible Gas Detector features a 16 inch flexible gooseneck for easy access into hard to reach locations. The detector quickly identifies and pinpoints the smalles gas leaks. The detector's high sensitivity will alert users through a visible and audible alarm at 10% lower explosive limit for methane. The one hand operation with thumb controlled sensitivity adjustement eliminates background gas levels.
Gas detected include:
- Natural gas
- Carbon monoxide
- Jet fuel
- Hydrogen sulfide
- Industrial solvents
- Lacquer thinner
- Pump driven field calibration range: 10ppm
- Sensor type: solid state
- Alarm: visible & audible @ 10% LEL for Methane
- Warm-up: Approx. 1 minute
- Response time:< 2 seconds (up to 40% LEL)
- Duty cycle: intermittent
- Battery life: 8 hours continuous use typical
- Dimensions: 8.7"x2.83"x1.8" (221x72x46mm)
- Weight: 18.4oz (520g)
- Warranty: 1 year
- (1) Portable gas detector
- (3) C batteries

Researchers at Washington State University will quantify uncombusted methane emissions throughout the U.S., according to a release . The investigators will look at emissions from local gas systems and try to estimate a national emissions rate.
Uncombusted natural gas is more harmful to the atmosphere than carbon dioxide because it has a higher warming potential. Emissions of uncombusted methane along the natural gas supply line haven’t been measured on a national scale and studying them will become more important as the U.S. natural gas industry continues to expand.
The Washington State study begins in April and is funded by major natural gas utilities, the Environmental Defense Fund and Conestoga-Rovers and Associates, an environmental engineering and consulting firm.Read More
A new air monitoring vehicle was recently delivered to the city of Vancouver with praise and skepticism from metropolitan residents, according to The Province.
The vehicle, known as the Mobile Air Monitoring Unit, is loaded with sensors which will monitor air quality. The city wants to monitor particulates in the air from coal, diesel and oil tankers.
Data collected by the truck transmits to the city hall.
Some citizens are happy to have a new mobile air monitoring station that will supplement the city’s 26 stationary monitoring stations. However, many citizens criticized the loaded Ford F-450’s price tag of more than $280,000.Read More
It’s an open, dirty secret that the ocean is used as the ultimate sewage solution.
Each year trillions of gallons of untreated waste are sent to the ocean due to a widespread lack of sanitation technology or infrastructure that needs updating as cities and populations grow. As the impact of untreated sewage on the ocean becomes clearer, attention to the problem and strategies for dealing with it have not kept up.
“This is a massive problem and it’s been largely ignored,” said Stephanie Wear, senior scientist and strategy advisor for The Nature Conservancy. Wear has turned her attention to raising the alarm about the effects of sewage on coral reefs, which often loses airtime to other pressing issues like climate change and overfishing.Read More
