High Sensitivity Gas Leak Visualisation

High Sensitivity Gas Leak Visualisation

FLIR Systems GFx320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera offers quick, non-contact measurement of gas leaks in real time. Using its unique High Sensitivity Mode the camera is able to set a new superior standard for gas leak detection performance. High Sensitivity Mode is based upon an image subtraction video processing technique that effectively enhances the thermal sensitivity of the camera. The HSM feature subtracts a percentage of individual pixel signals from frames in the video stream from the subsequent frames, thus enhancing the differences between frames, which make leaks stand out more...

HD Optical Gas Imaging Camera Improves Inspection Safety

HD Optical Gas Imaging Camera Improves Inspection Safety

Designed for oil and gas industry professionals, the FLIR GF620 high-definition (HD) optical gas imaging (OGI) camera sets a new standard for detecting and visualizing invisible leaks of hydrocarbons, such as methane, and common volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

With four times the pixels of previous models, the HD resolution GF620 helps inspectors survey for fugitive hydrocarbon emissions from further, safer distances than possible with lower-resolution OGI cameras. The new GF620...

Quantifying Methane Leaks & Flares

Quantifying Methane Leaks & Flares

FLIR Systems GF-Series Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras are being used by the oil and gas industry to quantitatively measure methane emissions and create a datum point for future methane reduction calculations. FLIR Systems, in partnership with Providence Photonics, has developed Quantitative Optical Gas Imaging (qOGI) technology, which is designed to work exclusively with FLIR GF-Series OGI cameras. Quantitative OGI represents a critical step forward in the world of optical gas imaging because it eliminates the need for secondary sampling devices to quantify gas emissions.

See with more sensitivity from farther away

See with more sensitivity from farther away

Flir System cooled midwave infrared (MWIR) cameras have long held a tactical advantage over uncooled longwave infrared (LWIR) cameras in many airborne and ground-based missions.

While cooled MWIR cameras are highly sensitive, they are also larger, heavier, require more power, and cost more than uncooled LWIR cameras. Recent advancements in High Operating Temperature (HOT) MWIR technology open up new possibilities.
