The main objective of this project is to build a model for detecting gas using Infrared radiation (IR), applicable for detecting gas leakage for home and industry usage. It is always essential to have a reliable and practical gas leakage detection system for safety purpose especially at home and industry. This project will focus on Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) detection. The method used to detect gas is by measuring IR intensity at the source as well as the detector. The IR intensity at detector is less than at the source since the gas absorbs IR radiation. Student tries to use two IR radiation sources for this project, which are the transmitter circuit and incandescent lamp. However, transmitter circuit is not functioned as expected and incandescent lamp is used to transmit IR radiation. Researches done for this project are understand about IR and LPG characteristics, search, construct and test the circuits used and understand how it works, construct a chamber for project model as well as doing experiment for proving the theory. As a conclusion, this project has exposed to new knowledge of LPG and IR applications besides introducing a cheap and simple concept of gas leakage detection, making it a reliable and practical system to be implemented.
