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.

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.

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.

Thermal imaging testing prevents failures

Thermal imaging testing prevents failures
In the Northern hemisphere, November through to March is a particularly testing time for any energy supplier. Electrical load is at its highest and the likelihood of a breakdown is far greater so the quick and efficient detection of faulty power lines and connections is vital. For many utility companies thermal imaging has significantly boosted their ability for preventing failures.
