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.

Detecting SF6 Leaks from Electrical Circuit Breakers

Detecting SF6 Leaks from Electrical Circuit Breakers

FLIR Systems GF306 optical gas imaging camera has been designed to address the challenge that electrical power stations face in detecting gas leaks from their Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) circuit breakers.

The longer a leak from a SF6 circuit breaker is left undetected and not repaired, the more revenue is lost, and the greater the impact on the environment from the electrical power station.

By using a portable, non-contact FLIR GF306 optical gas imaging camera - electrical power engineers can remotely visualize SF6 leaks from a safe...

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.

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.

Picomag - Economical Pocket-Sized Flowmeter

Picomag - Economical Pocket-Sized Flowmeter

The new pocket-sized electromagnetic Picomag from Endress+Hauser simultaneously measures the flow and the temperature of electrically conductive fluids. It is a cost-optimized solution for utility applications where the focus is on high repeatability (±0.2% o.f.s.) and thus reliable measured values – e.g. to correctly measure water flows (max. 750 l/min, 198 gal/min) or to minimize energy costs.

Due to its compact design, it can be installed into any pipe up to 50 millimeters (2") in diameter, even in confined spaces. In addition, it offers intuitive commissioning with Bluetooth...

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...

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.
