Methane and Hydrocarbon Quantification

Quantitative Optical Gas Imaging Response Factors

Quantitative OGI represents a critical step forward in the world of optical gas imaging because it eliminates the need for secondary sampling devices to quantify gas emissions.

How well the system is able to quantify a specific gas is a function of the FLIR camera, which may be more sensitive to one compound than another. This can be measured relative to a reference compound, with the resulting value called Response Factor (RF).
