Leak Detection Technology Prevents Power Outages

FLIR Systems has published a technical note that describes how its GF343 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera is helping utility companies using hydrogen-cooled generators avoid costly power outages. The technical note discusses how maintenance of hydrogen-cooled generators is critical for the safe and efficient operation of a power plant.

Finding and repairing hydrogen leaks from the cooling system can be difficult, time-consuming and potentially dangerous due to the explosive nature of the gas. Traditional methods for hydrogen leak detection tend to be unreliable at finding the source of the leak and better at finding a general area where hydrogen is present. The use of the FLIR GF343 OGI camera is shown to improve the efficiency and performance of leak detection considerably.
