VALENCIA, CA – July 8, 2014 -- Servomex, the world leader in continuous gas analysis solutions for the Hydrocarbon Processing (HP) and Natural Gas (NG) industries has joined forces with H2scan, provider of the most accurate, tolerant and affordable hydrogen leak detection and process gas monitoring solutions, to provide complete light hydrocarbon measurement and analytical solutions to its HP and NG customers.
The new partnership completes Servomex’s end-to-end offering for the innovative, multi component light hydrocarbon analyzer and GC alternative the SERVOTOUGH SpectraScan by providing a more robust and reliable measurement of hydrogen in hydrocarbon gases, using a unique alternative technology to traditional thermal conductivity sensors. H2scan’s hydrogen-specific sensing system is uniquely able to detect hydrogen against virtually any background gases without false readings or expensive support equipment required.
Rhys Jenkins, Market Sector Manager at Servomex, explains: “Unlike thermal conductivity sensors, the H2scan does not require significant application development for each mix of hydrocarbon gases, yet it exceeds industry standards. The combination of the two new and innovative technologies in the H2scan and SpectraScan is a head on challenge to traditional GC industry options for hydrocarbon sensing. The result is superior, yet simpler detection for HP and NG applications at considerably lower implementation and product lifetime costs for our customers.”
The H2scan patented “Chip on a flex” technology provides a far more robust and reliable direct measurement of hydrogen than any thermal conductivity sensor, making it a natural collaborative partner for the SpectraScan “Tunable Filter Spectroscopy” optical sensor. As an out-of-the box solution, the H2scan is easily configurable alongside the SpectraScan and comes with customer support that matches Servomex’s own customer-centric ethos.
Michael Nofal, Vice President Sales & Business Development at H2scan said: “Our hydrogen specific sensing systems based on a patented "Chip on a flex" technology have the ability to operate in real-time. This is important for the SERVOTOUGH SpectraScan which also operates in real time, unlike GC technologies which have a time lag. We also bring a host of benefits in terms of the lowest total cost of ownership, low maintenance and longer calibration intervals, simple system integration and installation and tolerance to harsh background contaminants.”

About H2scan Corporation (www.h2scan.com)
H2scan was founded in 2002 and has its headquarters, sales, production, and marketing staff in Valencia, California. The Company provides the most accurate, tolerant, and affordable hydrogen leak detection and process gas monitoring solutions for industrial markets enabling accurate monitoring and control functions for a wide range of applications, including control systems, safety monitoring and alarm systems. H2scan also provides portable, handheld configurations for easy leak detection and monitoring.
H2scan's hydrogen specific sensing systems based on a patented "Chip on a flex" technology are able to detect and measure hydrogen without false readings or expensive support equipment required. This makes it ideal for the NeSSI™ platform. H2scan’s process systems have the ability to operate in real-time, with or without the presence of oxygen, no interference from CO or H2S, separating H2scan from all other in-line measuring technologies. The leak detector sensing systems are able to detect hydrogen in air down to 15 ppm concentration without cross-sensitivities to other gases.
The company’s solid-state technology was originated at Sandia National Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy and is only available commercially through H2scan. Its products are sold in over 50 countries worldwide. For more information, please visit www.h2scan.com.
