Valencia California based world leader in providing hydrogen sensors for electric utilities and industrial markets H2scan is the first and only company to receive FM Approval for a hydrogen sensor with its GRIDSCAN 5000 product.Utilized in transformer health monitoring, the GRIDSCAN 5000 hydrogen sensor uses H2scan’s field-proven solid-state hydrogen sensor adopted by most dissolved gas analysis (DGA) transformer health monitoring solutions. This patented technology provides precision hydrogen concentration measurement directly in the oil, providing transformer owners including municipalities, utilities, and others with real-time indications of potential faults and issues within their transformer fleet. The sensor’s unique auto-calibration feature means no maintenance needed for over 10 years, making the GRIDSCAN 5000 the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) sensor on the market.FM Approvals is the independent testing arm of international insurance carrier, FM Global. FM Approvals uses scientific research and testing to ensure products conform to the highest standards for safety and property loss prevention. Products that pass this stringent testing receive the “FM APPROVED” mark.The FM Approval process includes a comprehensive set of tests including temperature, vibration, repeatability, high concentration, and voltage variation tests – all of which are specified in FM Approvals FM6250 standard. They also include low-range and full-range accuracy tests, in transformer oil in hydrogen concentrations of 25 ppm, 100 ppm, 200 ppm, and 250 ppm, as well as 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 90% of the full range, respectively.H2scan was founded in 2002, and has its headquarters, sales, production and marketing staff in Valencia, California. The company’s Gen 5 technology provides the most accurate, tolerant, and affordable hydrogen sensors for a wide range of industrial leak detection and process gas monitoring markets including control systems, safety monitoring and alarm systems. H2scan sensors are also used for electrical distribution reliability and are ideal for measuring hydrogen concentration in fuel cells, electrolyzers and the hydrogen distribution pipelines to reduce carbon emissions. H2scan’s customer base includes some of the largest manufacturing enterprises in the world including ABB, Siemens, GE Energy, Qualitrol, DOD, ExxonMobil, Shell, Chevron, Proctor & Gamble and more.
