LaserSense

LaserSense is a compact Quantum Cascade Laser-based gas detection system based on infrared absorption spectroscopy. LaserSense detects hydrocarbon gases (C1-C5) in the 4-14 parts per million range. The ML model is designed for mud-logging. The CV model is BTU Analyzer with Wobbe Index and Calorific Value Measurement, and the NGL model is a natural gas liquid analyzer.
