Emerson has acquired Spectrex Inc., a leading manufacturer of flame and open path gas detectors.
With this addition, Emerson Process Management will have the most comprehensive line of flame, gas and ultrasonic leak detector solutions used for safety monitoring in the industry.
Spectrex will join the Rosemount® portfolio of measurement and analytical technologies. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“We are very excited about adding the Spectrex product line to our flame and gas detection portfolio,” said Tom Moser, group vice president of Emerson Process Management’s measurement and analytical technologies.
“Emerson is committed to helping our customers protect their employees, facilities, and the environment, and we are now better positioned to serve that need.”
For nearly 34 years, Spectrex has been the leader in flame and open path gas detection. It developed the world’s first ultraviolet-infrared (UV/IR) and triple infrared (IR3) flame detectors and was first to introduce xenon flash lamps in open path detector design, increasing detectors’ resilience to atmospheric conditions while reducing power consumption.
These innovative advancements in safety monitoring provide a powerful solution for customers in the oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical and power industries.
Spectrex and its staff are located in Cedar Grove, New Jersey, USA, with sales and technical support offices in Houston, the United Kingdom and Taiwan.
