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...

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...

Should Solenoid Valves be Classed as Commodity Items?

Should Solenoid Valves be Classed as Commodity Items?

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,...

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...

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...
