Gas Detection

Under certain circumstances, infra-red cameras are highly suitable for detecting gas escapes and the presence of gas in the air. They can be also helpful during tests on improving environmental safety. A thermal camera can detect greenhouse gases in the air as well as gas leaks which may hazardous to the environment and can threaten human health. Some gases used in industry can significantly damage the environment and may cost a lot of money if they go unnoticed. Therefore, it is essential to eliminate any uncontrolled leaks. Traditional” methods for detecting gases require direct contact between a probe and the gas with the use of sensor technology. These methods are restricted due the time required to get a reading from the sensor and the risk of non-detection due to the gas type or location of the leak (gases may leak to places other where the sensor is located). To detect gases, we work with a specially constructed infra-red camera, which is able to visualise gas on the principle of infra-red thermography. The thermal camera provides a full image of the scanned area and gas leaks are reflected in the image as changes in the intensity of detected radiation. 

 

Detected gases:

Benzene, Ethanol, Ethylbenzene, Heptane, Hexane, Isoprene, Methanol, MEK, MIBK, Octane, Pentane, 1-Pentane, Toluene, Xylene, Butane, Ethane, Methane, Propane, Ethylene, Propylene plus hundreds of other hydrocarbons and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC).

 

Benefits:

  • Safe! Device driven inspection without personnel exposure to malicious fumes
  • continuous 360 degrees inspection with fast reaction opportunities
  • reduced repair costs and strongly reduced indemnities and penalties
  • Gas losses reduced with 90%
  • Cost reduction: price-performance ratio 10X better than current practices.
