Understanding cooled and uncooled optical gas imaging

Understanding cooled and uncooled optical gas imaging
A technical note has been published by FLIR Systems that discusses and compares the advantages of cooled versus uncooled Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) technology for different industrial applications. Historically, OGI cameras have been designed with cooled infrared (IR) detectors that offer several advantages over uncooled detectors, but they often come at a higher cost.

Detecting leaks from electrical circuit breakers

Detecting leaks from electrical circuit breakers
It has been announced that FLIR Systems has published a new application spotlight that addresses the challenge that electrical power stations face in detecting gas leaks from their Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) circuit breakers. Sulfur hexafluoride circuit breakers protect electrical power stations and distribution systems by interrupting electric currents, when tripped by a protective relay.

High-definition optical gas imaging camera improves inspection safety

High-definition optical gas imaging camera improves inspection safety
A high-definition (HD), handheld optical gas imaging (OGI) camera, the FLIR GF620, has been introduced by FLIR Systems. Designed for oil and gas industry professionals, the GF620 camera sets a new standard for detecting and visualising invisible leaks of hydrocarbons, such as methane, and common volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Pinpointing cable faults with thermal imaging

Pinpointing cable faults with thermal imaging
Heavy industries such as mining, shipbuilding and materials handling rely on heavy, rugged, industrial cables to ensure continuous power supply or communication, because of this the consequences of a cable break are costly. So, for the German cable repair specialist Becker and Hüser, FLIR thermal imaging is playing a vital role in helping to pinpoint the exact location of the problem.

Thermal cameras provide insight into material properties

Thermal cameras provide insight into material properties
It has been reported by FLIR Systems how its FLIR A6700 series thermal cameras with Lock-In, Transient, and Pulse capabilities can perform advanced inspections such as Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) or stress mapping, resolving temperature differences as low as 1mK.

Detecting gas leakage from a refrigeration plant compressor

Detecting gas leakage from a refrigeration plant compressor
It has been reported by FLIR Systems how its GF304 optical gas imaging camera has been used to detect Freon R-124 gas leaks from a refrigeration plant compressor without interrupting or shutting down operations. Most modern refrigerants are organofluorine compounds, and while they are not ozone-depleting, some blends contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

Thermal imaging prevents breakouts

Thermal imaging prevents breakouts
Steel breakouts are catastrophic process failures that are both extremely dangerous and costly. Monitoring the health of ladles and torpedoes using thermal imaging can greatly minimise the risk but a handheld infrared camera can only provide a periodic check on the health of these critical transport structures. ANT Automation has overcome this limitation by developing a system that provides continuous thermal monitoring and at its heart is FLIR thermal imaging.
