FLIR enables real-time liquid leak detection in the mining industry

IntelliView’s DCAM™ dual-camera solution uses visual and FLIR thermal cameras for early leak detection in gold mining pipelines.

Toxic chemicals, such as cyanide and sulfuric acid, are widely used for metal extraction in the mining industry. Whenever unintended leaks of these chemicals occur, it can immediately have serious consequences for the environment.

Traditional monitoring systems struggle to detect small leaks early enough. That’s why Canadian video analytics specialist IntelliView recently developed its DCAM™ analytic dual-camera solution for above-ground facilities. Making use of the compact FLIR A65 camera, IntelliView offers the gold mining industry an advanced solution to spot surface liquid leaks based on temperature and emissivity differences.
