Optical Gas Imaging
FLIR optical gas imaging (OGI) cameras can help you detect methane, sulfur hexafluoride, and hundreds of other industrial gases quickly, accurately, and safely - without shutting down systems. With FLIR OGI cameras, you can scan broad sections of equipment rapidly and survey areas that are hard to reach with traditional contact measurement tools. OGI cameras can also detect leaks from a safe distance, displaying these invisible gases as clouds of smoke.
See hydrocarbon leaks clearly
Scan thousands of connections for natural gas (methane) and other hydrocarbon leaks quickly and from a safe distance to avoid regulatory violations, fines, and lost revenue.
FLIR received third-party validation of the FLIR GFx320, GF320, GF300, and G300a cameras' compliance with the following sensitivity standard laid out by the EPA in the NSPS OOOOa methane rule:
Your optical gas imaging equipment must be capable of imaging a gas that is half methane, half propane at a concentration of 10,000 ppm at a flow rate of ≤60g/hr from a quarter inch diameter orifice.
Find SF6 leaks easily
Scan substation circuit breakers for sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) leaks at a safe distance from high-voltage areas, without the need to shut down operations.
Find leaks at steel plants
Protect workers and the environment from toxic levels of carbon monoxide (CO) by pinpointing leaks quickly and efficiently
Detect leaks from hydrogen-cooled generators
Imaging the tracer gas, CO2, with an optical gas camera allows operators of hydrogen-cooled generators to efficiently find hydrogen leaks.
Detect R-124 compressor leaks
Find leaks early to avoid interruptions in operations, prevent the loss of perishable products, and limit the environmental impact of toxic refrigerants.
