Mirico’s CH4 sensor

As a powerful greenhouse gas, with 84 times* the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of carbon dioxide over a 20-year period, monitoring and controlling methane (CH4) emissions has become essential for compliance and public image.

Mirico’s CH4 monitoring system is ideally suited to continuous methane emissions monitoring (as well as intermittent emissions monitoring) for oil and gas facilities, landfills and agricultural operations.

In adverse weather conditions that would significantly affect the accuracy and reliability of other monitoring systems, this delivers more reliable and highly sensitive measurements to provide greater confidence in the results.


  • Instrument
  • Detection limit: Equivalent to 50ppb over 100m in 1s (5ppm.m/Hz)
  • Communications: Web-based user interface (WiFi)
  • Measurement range: 50-400 m, subject to application
  • Single Scanning Head
  • Horizontal Rotation: 360 degrees
  • Vertical Rotation: -10 to +10 degree

Key benefits

  • Unique open path gas sensing technology
  • High precision,¬†highly accurate, uninterrupted measurements in all weather conditions
  • Increased confidence in results vs conventional methods
  • Large area coverage with robust co-located instruments
  • Autonomous alignment for increased data reliability
  • System checking and minimal maintenance
  • Integrates with meteorological data to deliver accurate quantification
