A portable optoelectronic leak detector for detection of ammonia leaks through the through-thickness defects in industrial facilities, chemical sensor and aerodynamic device for transportation of analyte sample from the defect to the sensor, as the instrument component, were developed. Proceeding from analysis of research results, it was found that the instrument is capable of reliably detecting ammonia concentrations of the order of 1 ppm, and effectively functions in the range of ammonia concentrations of 1 – 10 ppm. Optimum conditions were determined, under which it is rational to operate the instrument. 9 References, 6 Figures.
