Depends on the leak rate you are looking, you can use UT Gas Leak Detector - check with sonatest/soundscan or Helium Leak Detector - check with uson.com

hi... if you want to detect any other gas like poisonous gas,co2, etc you can use MiniRAE Lite portable gas detector.I am using this product and is working fine for me .

You specifically ask about laser equipment. I'm not aware of any laser equipment for remote detection, but there are thermal infrared systems that are tuned to identify leaks of various gases. They depend on the IR absorptivity of the gases, so not all gases are suited for detection this way. The systems are appropriate for remote sensing and detection, however. FLIR offers the GasFinder cameras for this. See http://www.flir.com/ogi/content/?id=66693
There are also monitoring systems that can be used, for example in a fixed location such as a stack. These depend on attenuation of a signal that is sent through the stack flow and reflected back to a sensor. Not sure if you'd consider these "laser".

TOPAZ® 64: Fully Integrated Portable 64 Channel PAUT Instrument with FMC & TFM

Introducing TOPAZ64, the industry’s most intelligent fully integrated, portable 64-channel phased
...
array ultrasound (UT) instrument. TOPAZ64 combines code-compliant phased array UT with the industry’s most advanced full matrix capture (FMC) and total focusing method (TFM) capabilities. Featuring the highest acquisition frequency in its class, high resolution FMC and a 12” multi-touchscreen, users can easily visualize even the smallest flaws. TOPAZ64 can generate a bipolar pulse that provides more acoustic energy versus previous models for punching through thick components. The result is a portable tool that delivers increased inspection coverage, more accurate signals, and the ability to handle all UT inspections in one package. TOPAZ64 is ideal for challenging applications in transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing and power generation.

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
