Today, NEO Monitors is a leading manufacturer and supplier of Tuneable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS) gas and dust analyzers, based on over 30 years of high-risk research and development in electro-optics and laser technology.
NEO Monitors AS was acquired by the Nederman Group in 2017. Our Dust and Gas Analyzers are the preferred choice for a broad range of applications within process and emission control. Our products are sold through a global network of distributors.
Our quality management system is ISO 9001:2015-certified
NEO Monitors develops and supplies tailored LaserGas™ and LaserDust™ solutions for measuring gas and dust in all types of industries worldwide.
Our solutions have three main missions:
- Optimize production processes
- Control and improve safety
- Measure emissions
The analyzers can measure over 40 gases and combinations and are used in numerous kinds of applications in all kinds of industries, such as cement, chemical/petro-chemical, oil and gas, power, pulp and paper, environmental, fertilizer and many more.
NEO Monitors has more than 40 distributors spread across all continents. It is the fastest growing European company in this niche, with over 16000 analyzers installed.
Our expertise and engineering capabilities allows for more than 100 different configurations tailored to customer needs, helping global industries to achieve better processes control, decreased operational costs and increased efficiency.
Steady growth the last years has provided a solid foundation for further development together with our Distributors
NEO Monitors introduced the World’s First IN-SITU Hydrogen Analyzers
LaserGas™ iQ2 Vulcan was launched as a one flange combustion monitor.
NEO Monitors was acquired by the Nederman Group
The Nederman Group is a world-leading supplier and developer of products and solutions within the environmental technology sector. They filter, clean and recycle in demanding industrial environments. Clean air is a cornerstone for sustainable production and Nederman’s products and solutions improve production efficiency, reduce environmental impact and protect employees from harmful dust, smoke and fumes.
LaserGas™ iQ2 was released as a complete combustion monitor. The first dual laser multi-gas instrument.
LaserGas™ Q was released in order to increase the product range in the Mid-infrared range.
NEO Monitors launched a new generation analyzers with focus on safety application. LaserGas™ III was developed to meet requirements and needs in the oil and gas market.
LaserGas™ II Compact, LaserGas™ II Open Path and LaserDust™ was released.
NEO Monitors was established as a sales, service and manufacturing company for gas and dust analyzers
The LaserGas™ II Single Path was introduced and has turned out be stable and reliable, but also a flexible platform. Since then it has evolved into a variety of versions. The LaserGas™ II Multipass was launched the same year, as an extractive solution.
The first LaserGas™ I was sold and installed for measuring the levels of gases “in-situ”. This means that gases were analyzed directly in the process stream without extracting and conditioning gas samples from the process
NEO entered into the exciting world of Gas Spectroscopy and became one of the leading suppliers of Gas Analyzers based on Tunable Diode Laser Spectroscopy (TDLS).
Norsk Elektro Optikk (NEO) was founded based on research and innovation.
Tycho Jæger brought his research into NEO, the first company based on electro optics in Norway. During his research at FFI (Norwegian Defence Research Establishment) Jæger made some crucial findings within electro optics and saw a huge potential for new measurement techniques based on electro optics in a fast growing oil and gas market in Norway
Tycho Jæger generated the first laser light in Norway. When the first working laser was reported in 1960, it was described as “a solution looking for a problem“. Jæger saw it rather as a solution solving a problem. This was the start of NEO (Norsk Elektro Optikk).
