Abstract:

THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DEVICE BASED ON THE SPECTRAL CORRELATION TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED. THE SMALL, HAND-HELD DEVICE WILL DETECT FUEL VAPOR IN CONCENTRATIONS AS LOW AS 1 PPM BASED ON THE INFRARED ABSORPTION CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FUEL VAPOR. THE SPECTRAL CORRELATION TECHNIQUE ALLOWS THE DEVICE TO ACCURATELY MEASURE FUEL VAPOR CONCENTRATIONS IN THE PPM RANGE IN THE PRESENCE OF OTHER IR ABSORBING SPECIES. THE TECHNIQUE ALSO REDUCES THE NEED FOR VERY STRICT REGULATION OF THE IR SOURCE INTENSITY, THUS REDUCING THE COST AND COMPLEXITY OF THE DEVICE. STATIONARY FUEL VAPOR MONITORS OF HIGHER SENSITIVITY CAN ALSO BE DEVELOPED USING THE SPECTRAL CORRELATION TECHNIQUE. A COMBINATION OF STATIONARY AND PORTABLE MONITORS WILL ALLOW FUEL LEAKS TO BE DETECTED AND THE EXACT LOCATION IDENTIFIED.
