Affordable OGI Camera for Methane Detection

Affordable OGI Camera for Methane Detection

The FLIR GF77 is a next generation handheld Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera that offers inspection professionals the features they need to find potentially dangerous, invisible methane leaks at natural gas power plants, renewable energy production facilities, industrial plants, and other locations along a natural gas supply chain.

The uncooled GF77 provides methane gas detection capability at roughly half the price of cooled gas inspection thermal cameras, to empower the oil and gas industry to reduce emissions and ensure a safer work environment.

TWO Neutrino™ Camera Series - Performance & SWaP+C

TWO Neutrino™ Camera Series - Performance & SWaP+C

The performance series includes two new models; the FLIR Neutrino OX and Neutrino SX12. Ranging from 1.3 to> 3.1 megapixels, this series includes the highest resolution MWIR camera from FLIR.

The new compact and lightweight Neutrino LC, with its high operating temperature (HOT) focal plane array, sets the standard for SWaP+C. Neutrinos are ideal for commercial, industrial and defense applications. Built from the ground up for integrators, they are easy to integrate, making for shorter time to market.

Effectively combat spills

Effectively combat spills

Uncontrolled spills can have a devastating effect on the environment, on people and businesses in the vicinity of the spill, and on a company’s future. Well prepared companies can stop spills before they cause workplace accidents, affect the health of employees and people living nearby, damage the environment and contaminate water. Investing in spill control tools can prevent major costs in fines, damages and pollution cleanup.

 

Beside ideas on how to prepare for...

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...

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.

Safeguarding Staff from Carbon Monoxide Leaks

Safeguarding Staff from Carbon Monoxide Leaks

The FLIR GF346 Optical Gas Imaging Camera is designed to detect even the smallest Carbon Monoxide (CO) leaks. Able to scan large areas rapidly and pinpoint leaks in real time, the GF346 is ideal for monitoring plants where it is difficult to reach components with contact measurement tools such as gas sniffers. Using a FLIR GF346 safeguards personnel from the dangers of Carbon Monoxide poisoning, reduces repair downtime and provides verification of the process. And above all it is exceptionally safe, allowing potentially dangerous...
