How Optical Gas Imaging Tools Promote a Culture of Safety

How Optical Gas Imaging Tools Promote a Culture of Safety

An in-depth article from FLIR Systems describes how its GF320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera can be used to more quickly and safely identify hydrocarbon gas venting to the atmosphere in order to reduce product loss and help meet regulatory emission reduction requirements.

In addition to regulatory compliance issues, high level of hydrocarbon gas emissions equates to significant lost product for oil and gas operators.

As a consequence, the oil and gas industry have been looking at how to best find and repair natural gas leaks at...

Safe Inspection of Natural Gas Plants

Safe Inspection of Natural Gas Plants

FLIR System's GF620 Optical Gas Imaging camera is helping inspectors to remotely survey for fugitive gas emissions from safer distances than is possible with lower-resolution OGI cameras.

The GF620 is equipped with a 640x480 infrared detector, the camera is calibrated to measure temperature, allowing the user to assess the thermal contrast between the gas and the background scene, and adjust it to improve visibility. 

The FLIR GF620 also features the company’s unique high sensitivity mode, which accentuates plume movement to improve detectability...

Pressure Sensors in Hydraulic Presses

Pressure Sensors in Hydraulic Presses

Hydraulic presses use a hydraulic cylinder to generate large mechanical forces. Utilizing Pascal’s law, in which pressure applied to a confined fluid occurs throughout the fluid, hydraulic presses apply a moderate mechanical force to a small cross-sectional area, which is transferred to a larger cross-sectional area in the hydraulic cylinder. This allows for the hydraulic cylinder to generate a greater pressure to the application than what was applied.

Hydraulic presses are used in many manufacturing operations and take up less space than mechanical presses. Commonly, they are...

Sensata Launches New Low Noise Solid State Relays

Sensata Launches New Low Noise Solid State Relays

Sensata Technologies announced the availability of the new Low Noise (LN) series of panel mounted solid state relays designed for use in a wide range of consumer and industrial systems and products where precise power control, long life, reliability and reduced levels of electromagnetic noise are required.

Instead of using moving components as mechanical power relays do, solid state relays rely on silicon-controlled rectifier technology which allows SSRs to provide quieter operation (no clicking), longer life, as well as more precise switching control.

Low-Cost Optical Gas Imaging Camera for Leak Detection

Low-Cost Optical Gas Imaging Camera for Leak Detection

The FLIR GF77a Gas Find IR camera provides upstream and midstream gas processors, producers, and operators with the ability to monitor continuously for invisible, potentially dangerous methane leaks at natural gas power plants, renewable energy production facilities, industrial plants, and other locations along a natural gas supply chain.

Positioned at nearly half the price of FLIR's fixed-mount, cooled platform, the GF77a is engineered to detect industrial gases such as methane, sulfur dioxide, and nitrous oxide to improve inspections and reduce...
