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.
