The Long-Wave Gas Detection Camera
By FLIR Systems, Inc - Optical Gas Imaging

The gas detection camera technique has a wide range of potential uses in the electrical distribution and chemical industries, all of which have positive benefits for the owner of the plant. It is an accepted Alternate Work Practice in the Method 21 leak detection procedure and has clear time, safety, and cost benefits over the conventional VOC meter or sniffer method. Although limited to a certain extent by environmental conditions, the camera is proven to identify leaks at some distance. This reduces the cost of surveys by removing the requirement to provide access to every potential leak path and permitting surveys to be completed on energized electrical equipment.

New Radar Technology For Solids Level Measurement

In nearly every industry, operators use solids level measurement to track and monitor material stored in large vessels, silos, or tanks. They need to know the value of their inventory and to be able to conduct process monitoring. Key examples include corn milling, grains and powders, cement, wood chips, and even sand used for oil and gas drilling applications. Solids can be challenging to gauge. There are numerous available measuring methods, with varying degrees of accuracy. 

Thermal Flow Meters For Coal Applications
By Fox Thermal Instruments, Inc.

Coal mines must monitor and report greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in order to comply with the EPA's Title 40 CFR Part 98 Subpart FF. Fox Gas Flow Meters can measure the flow of GHG emissions for reporting purposes.

SANILEC Seawater Electrochlorination Systems

For more than 35 years, De Nora Water Technologies has offered seawater electrochlorination systems to economically and safely produce a powerful biocide and disinfecting agent for marine, offshore, and industrial applications.

Liquid Interface Level Measurement

The need for interface measurement arises whenever immiscible liquids — those incapable of mixing — reside within the same vessel. The lighter material rises to the top, and the heavier material settles at the bottom.

MT5000 Guided Wave Radar

The MT5000 features a graphic display with waveform screen, the widest selection of wetted materials, and radar signals travel along the waveguide. It eliminates false echoes and minimizes signal loss.
