GAZOMAT, a company of the American ECOTEC group, is a specialist in gas leak detection equipment for gas network survey, fugitive emissions monitoring and operator protection in hazardous environments, providing top of the line instruments and working with some of the largest gas utilities in the world for the past three decades.
GAZOMAT's detection technology is based on laser spectroscopy (tunable laser diode), offering high-level performances: Methane selectivity, ppb sensitivity and rapid response time.
The first to introduce traceability software working in conjunction with its vehicle mounted gas analyzers and portable detectors, GAZOMAT innovates further with new fully interconnected monitoring solutions, available as Web software and mobile app, thus addressing gas utilities needs for data integrity, network management optimization and regulatory compliance.
GAZOMAT' major products include the proprietary ATEX certified INSPECTRA Laser detector for both pedestrian and vehicle network surveys as well as the NGMesh gas monitoring Enterprise Application software with real-time geolocation, time signature, data logging for further analysis, reporting and auditing.
GAZOMAT has a reputation for great customer support backed up by a strong team of technical experts. The company has offices in France, Italy, the USA, China and Brazil and is represented worldwide through an extensive distribution network.

The Gazoscan is a laser-based hand-held remote methane leak detector of the latest generation. Methane selective, fast-responding, with a 50m (164ft) detection distance and the capacity to detect through glass, the Gazoscan is designed for natural gas detection over long distances. The device applies to any situation where operating close to the inspection zone is not possible, increasing safety and efficiency for field personnel in gas utilities, pipeline construction and maintenance, first responders, fire departments, environmental compliance and other applications. Its light weight and extreme manoeuvrability also make all the difference for a daily use.
INSPECTRA LASER METHANE DETECTOR:
Applied to on-foot gas leak search, this portable detector integrates a laser spectroscopy technology sensor, also used in Gazomat’s survey vehicle. It offers major benefits over other existing instruments:
■ Total selectivity to methane
■ Sub PPM sensitivity to methane
■ Double scale display: PPM and % Gas Vol.
■ Atex certified, it can be used both indoors and outdoors.
■ Available with a GPS system and wireless communication, the INSPECTRA detector connects to a mobile phone or tablet and displays gas leaks detected with precise geolocalization via a dedicated mobile app. The operator can give immediate alert on any gas leaks above critical levels along with relevant data (pictures/screen captures/comments) for further leak localization and remediation.
NGMESH Emissions Monitoring:
The NHMesh solution is a web-based enterprise system including all hardware and software for methane and VOC emissions remote continuous monitoring. It ensures:
■ Leak measurement data collection with geolocation from stationary sensors (GAZPODs) and mobile INSPECTRA detectors
■ Secure, wireless data transfer, via a built-in cellular network connection and the NGMesh survey mobile app.
■ Real-time leak alerts and monitoring updates
■ Secure data storage
■ Data reporting and distribution to appropriate parties
Emissions data can be accessed online all the time, everywhere, as often as needed. The system is designed as a decision-making tool to assist in the leak remediation process, efficiently.
