FLIR Optical Gas Imaging Cameras Help To Spot Gas Leaks From The Air
FLIR Optical Gas Imaging Cameras Help To Spot Gas Leaks From The Air The Al Hosn Shah Gas Processing Plant in Abu Dhabi is a natural gas processing plant that purifies gases by removing certain contaminants in a sweetening process. The gas pipelines and other infrastructures that process sour gases need to be continuously monitored for leaks as the contaminant gases are often dangerous for human exposure. This case study explores the innovative combination of UAV and FLIR optical gas imaging technologies as an...  Continue Reading...
Avoiding Outages With Hydrogen Leak Detection Technology
Avoiding Outages With Hydrogen Leak Detection Technology A power plant must keep up maintenance of the hydrogen-cooled generators for the safety of its workers and the environment, as well as for efficient operation of the plant. Traditional methods for hydrogen leak detection in a cooling system may be able to find the general area where hydrogen is present, but can be unreliable at finding the source of the leak. The introduction of optical gas imaging cameras has greatly improved the efficiency and ...  Continue Reading...
Optical Gas Imaging At Jonah Energy: Saving Gas And Money Through Regular OGI Surveys
Optical Gas Imaging At Jonah Energy: Saving Gas And Money Through Regular OGI Surveys The oil and gas industry loses an average of eight million metric tons of methane through gas leaks every year. Although this does not equate to some major methane leaks in the past, such as at the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility in 2015, the industry is still faced with how to best find and repair leaks at potential escape points. As an alternative to the industry standard for leak detection and repair, Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) is...  Continue Reading...
