Benzene is an elementary petrochemical derived from crude oil that’s notable for its sweet smell. Benzene has a high octane number, making it an important fuel additive to gasoline. It’s also used in the production of heavy chemicals, lubricants, and plastics. Breathing in high levels of benzene can be fatal, and long term exposure can cause cancer.
Gain a greater understanding of optical gas imaging (OGI) technology and how it can help you find and repair gas leaks quickly, saving time, money, and the environment. This new iBook offers:
Detection of gas leaks in industrial facilities is not only dangerous and time-consuming: it is also susceptible to human error and interpretation. In order to provide a safer, more efficient and more reliable detection solution, RoboGasInspector was conceived. This innovative robot system for remote detection and localization of gas leaks was developed by a range of German companies and institutes, and uses a FLIR GF320 optical gas imaging camera.
Some industrial, pharmaceutical and petrochemical plants emit gases that can harm the environment and impede the health of company employees and inhabitants of the surrounding area. Environmental protection agencies have the responsibility to make sure that these emissions fall within governmental and international policy guidelines. To help them with that task environmental protection agencies can use an optical gas imaging camera.
