Interchangeable Lens OGI Cameras Enhance Leak Detection

Interchangeable Lens OGI Cameras Enhance Leak Detection

FLIR Systems GF-series Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras are now available with interchangeable 24-degree, 14.5-degree and 6-degree lenses. This new flexibility has been introduced to maximise the gas leak finding capabilities of these popular cameras. Available as standard on all new GF320 Series and other related cameras, all existing GF Series OGI cameras returned to FLIR systems for general maintenance can be retrofitted with the interchangeable lens capability free of charge.

Always connected, always sharp

Always connected, always sharp

Paper slitting machines from American machine builder JSI are well-connected indeed. By using HMS technology, JSI can remotely access and control the machine via the internet and also enable wired and wireless communication between different parts of the machine. All this allows JSI to offer an even more competitive and connected machine.

Main benefits:
· Operators avoid contact with sharp slitter blades
· Reduced downtime due to blade changes
· Reduced service costs as service can be done remotely
· Maximized blade life through wear...

Immediate Quantification of Gas Leaks

Immediate Quantification of Gas Leaks

FLIR Systems announces new Quantitative Optical Gas Imaging (qOGI) technology, developed in conjunction with Providence Photonics, that was designed to work exclusively with its GF-Series cameras. qOGI represents a major advance in the world of optical gas imaging because it eliminates the need for secondary sampling devices to quantify gas emissions.

Using a Providence Photonics’ QL320™ in conjunction with a FLIR GFx320 or FLIR GF320 camera, surveyors can now measure mass leak rates (lb/h or g/h) or volumetric leak rates (cc/min or L/min) for most hydrocarbons.

Tailored Asset & Component Labels

Tailored Asset & Component Labels

Asset and component traceability, from production to maintenance and even spare part service contracts, becomes easier because more information can be printed in a legible way on durable labels. This can also result in better compliance with legal requirements such as UL certification, safety standards and environmental responsibilities. 

Brady’s asset and component labels can be created with the highest flexibility.
This includes:
-    small prints of text in every language, symbols and special characters
-    improved serialisation...

Prevent slips, trips and falls

Prevent slips, trips and falls

Slips, trips and falls can result both in fatal and non-fatal workplace accidents and they are one of the most frequently occurring accident types. 36% of EU companies acknowledge an increased risk of slips, trips and falls in their workplace according to EU-OSHA. To decrease the risk, we propose a number of reliable and highly visible safety identification solutions.

Floor marking: easily identify safe walking routes, obstacles and hazardous areas in the workplace. Safety signs: a simple safety sign can prevent costly workplace accidents if it is clearly visible, draws attention...
