Reliable Leak Detection In Industrial Gas Pressure-Relief Stations
Tessenderlo Kerley International is a chemical group that supplies value-added liquid, soluble, and solid plant nutrition for agriculture applications with a focus on the production of potassium sulfate. Tessenderlo Kerley relies on third parties, like Belgian inspection company, The Sniffers, to inspect for leaks of natural gas at their site on a regular basis. This case study follows the company as it tested the FLIR GF77 uncooled optical gas...  Continue Reading..

Thermal Imaging Cameras For Flare Monitoring
Thermal imaging cameras are an ideal monitoring tool for flare stacks, since they allow automated remote monitoring on a 24/7 basis in virtually any weather. In addition, thermal imaging cameras avoid many of the technical and cost-related problems associated with other technologies such as ultraviolet (UV) flame detectors, flame ionization spectrometers, thermocouples, and pyrometers.  Continue Reading..

Thermal Imaging Cameras Support The Safety Of Italian Gasification Plants
Gasification is a promising technology for generating energy. At ISAB Energy, located in the vicinity of Priolo (Sicily), gasifiers are used to convert residual oil fuel into energy under high temperatures. To make sure this process runs smoothly and safely, FLIR thermal cameras are continuously monitoring the skin temperature of gasification vessels.  Continue Reading..

Thermal Imaging Provides Early Leak Detection In Oil And Gas Pipelines
Monitoring the integrity of hundreds of kilometers of oil or gas pipeline networks may seem like a daunting task at first, but fortunately, technology can take over many of the labor-intensive tasks. Canadian video analytics specialist IntelliView knows the demands of oil and gas pipeline operators all too well. The company recently developed a smart camera solution, including a thermal camera from FLIR, to remotely monitor oil pump stations for...  Continue Reading..

IMAGING PRODUCTS

The FLIR GF620 is an optical imaging camera designed to detect and visualize methane and other volatile organic compounds. This high-resolution, high-sensitivity camera features a 640 x 480 IR detector. It is also the first FLIR OGI camera to offer Quantification mode (Q-mode) for streamlined set-up of the optional QL320 gas quantification system.

The FLIR QL320™ is a quantitative optical gas imaging (qOGI) system that works solely with FLIR GF620, GFx320, and GF320 OGI cameras. With this technology, surveyors can measure mass leak rates or volumetric leak rates for most hydrocarbons. With usage capabilities at a variety of distances, operators can monitor hard to reach areas and storage tanks from a safe location.

The FLIR A6604 optical gas infrared imaging camera is designed for continuously scanning installations in remote areas or zones that are difficult to access. These cameras are widely used in industrial settings, such as oil refineries, natural gas processing plants, offshore platforms, chemical/petrochemical complexes, and biogas, and power generation plants. They are also able to detect harmful greenhouse gases that can seriously harm the environment.

The FLIR G300 a optical gas infrared imaging camera is designed for continuously scanning installations in remote areas or zones that are difficult to access. These cameras are widely used in industrial settings, such as oil refineries, natural gas processing plants, offshore platforms, chemical/petrochemical complexes, and biogas, and power generation plants.

The GF343 is an infrared optical gas imaging camera designed to quickly and easily detect CO2 leaks from a safe distance. This non-contact CO2 detection technology helps prevent unplanned outages by permitting the inspection of equipment while it is still online in the course of normal operations.

FLIR offers the GF306 optical gas imaging camera designed to visualize and pinpoint SF6 and other gas emissions without the need to shut down operations. With the ability to quickly scan wide areas for leaks at safe distances, these cameras enable quicker repairs, and reduce revenue costs and safety concerns involved with gas-insulated substation and circuit breakers.
