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 clearly...

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...

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.

Should solenoid valves be classed as more than a commodity item?

Should solenoid valves be classed as more than a commodity item?

There are those who view solenoid valves as merely a commodity, and there are those who are interested in long-term reliability. The overall reliability of any system in a process plant cannot exceed the reliability of the final link in the control chain.

Unfortunately, however, low cost and high reliability may be divergent ambitions when it comes to valves. Engineers seeking operational longevity and high-quality performance should think beyond initial purchase price, as any other strategy is likely to cost far more in the long run. 

Driven by cost pressures,...

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...

Pneumatic Stoppers

Pneumatic Stoppers

Socap’s pneumatic stopper is suitable for the temporary plugging of circular pipes, like sewer lines, aqueducts, drainage lines etc. to completely isolate one section of the pipe containing the liquid from the section where repair or maintenance will take place. This type of pneumatic stopper can also be used to carry out pressure test on the pipe.

Socap ‘s Pneumatic Stopper is also use of temporarily plugging metal pipes (pipelines, gas mains etc.) to be serviced in the presence of flammable gas and liquids at medium pressure. This type of pneumatic stopper...
