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...

Detect Carbon Monoxide Leaks Safely

Detect Carbon Monoxide Leaks Safely

The FLIR GF346 is an optical gas imaging camera designed to detect carbon monoxide and a number of other gases. It is unbeatable for detecting even the smallest leaks. The FLIR GF346 can scan large areas rapidly and pinpoint leaks in real time. It is ideal for monitoring plants where it is difficult to reach components with contact measurement tools such as gas sniffers. Literally thousands of components can be scanned per shift without the need to interrupt the process. Using a FLIR GF346 safeguards personnel from the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning, reduces repair downtime and provides...

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.

Detecting Fluorinated Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Detecting Fluorinated Greenhouse Gas Emissions

The FLIR GF306 visualizes Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) emissions and is the only optical gas imaging camera that has the sensitivity to detect levels of 0.1% of total SF6 amount in any given system. Used in the electric power industry as an insulator and quenching medium for gas-insulated substations and circuit breakers, new EU legislation on SF6 emissions is set to become law in 2019**.

The portable, non-contact GF306 camera allows you to quickly scan substations for leaks while maintaining a safe distance from high-voltage equipment. By catching leaks early, the GF306 reduces lost...
