Optical Gas Imaging Cameras For Continuous Gas Leak Detection
With thermal imaging cameras like the G300 a, you can monitor your vital gas pipelines or installations 24/7. You will immediately see if a dangerous and costly gas leak appears. You do not have to rely anymore on periodic inspections. Monitoring is done from a safe distance without the need to send technicians into potentially dangerous areas.
Optical gas imaging cameras from FLIR can visualize and pinpoint gas leaks that are invisible to the naked eye. With an optical gas imaging camera it is easy to continuously scan installations that are in remote areas or in zones that are difficult to access.
Continuous monitoring means that you will immediately see when a dangerous or costly gas leak appears so that immediate action can be taken. Optical gas imaging (OGI) cameras are widely used in industrial settings, such as oil refineries, natural gas processing plants, offshore platforms, chemical/ petrochemical complexes, and biogas and power generation plants.
OGI cameras like the FLIR G300 a can detect harmful VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) that can seriously harm the environment.
FLIR G300 a optical gas imaging camera can be easily integrated in housings with application specific requirements.
Cooled detector makes the smallest temperature differences visible
FLIR G300 a contains a cooled Indium Antimonide (InSb) detector that produces thermal images of 320 x 240 pixels. With its low F-number and high sensitivity, G300 a detects the smallest of leaks.
The high sensitivity mode further enhances the detection level of the camera so that the smallest gas leaks can be detected.
Easy to control
All models are easy to control from a safe distance. They can be fully controlled over Ethernet. They can easily be integrated in a TCP/ IP network.
The FLIR G300 a is available with a 23 mm (FOV: 24° × 18°) or 38 mm (14.5 x10.8) lens. Longer lenses give you a narrower field of view so that you can detect gas leaks from further away.
FLIR G300 a detects the following gases:
Benzene, Ethanol, Ethylbenzene,Heptane, Hexane, Isoprene, Methanol, MEK, MIBK, Octane, Pentane, 1-Pentene, Toluene, m-xylene, Butane, Methane, Propane, Ethylene and Propylene.
