The time of inefficient, prehistoric, and cost-prohibitive gas monitoring measures is over.

As we flip the calendar ahead to the modern era, it’s time to opt for a smarter, more efficient, and environmentally friendly way to monitor and detect harmful gas leaks coming from our working facilities.

As we continue to evolve and learn about our environment, planet, and the negative ramifications of pollution which has plagued our atmosphere for too long, it’s time that we, as industry leaders, take preventative precautions in order to prohibit these fugitive emissions from escaping our facilities.

In the past, this has been a difficult task; it’s required long hours, difficult and dangerous situations, and walking along tens, or even hundreds, of miles to monitor our facilities, pipelines, and other spaces to ensure that there are no hazardous gas leaks.

But what if we told you there was a much more efficient, and smarter, way to monitor and detect gas leaks? Well, there is. At Safety Scan, we are committed to bettering the world through innovative solutions, and that’s just what we’re here to tell you about today.

Through optical gas imaging, industries dealing with potentially harmful gases — commonly as unintended byproducts within refineries, gas pipelines, and manufacturing plants — have the ability to monitor their entire facility in real time through thermal imaging technology.

Imagine, for instance, being able to hold a video camera and make a thorough scan of a miles-long stretch of pipeline without having to manually walk and inspect each section by hand. Well, with the Flir F320 optical gas imaging camera, that ability is now entirely possible.

Its ergonomic design, real-time gas imaging technology, and comprehensive gas detection system makes this the best optical gas imaging device imaginable — and thanks to Safety Scan, it’s available now to industries within the United States.

Key Benefits Of Flir Optical Gas Imaging

How exactly does the Flir F320 optical gas imaging camera work?

It’s really quite simple (and wonderful). The camera uses thermal imaging (infrared) technology to scan areas of concern for potentially harmful gases which are normally invisible to the naked eye.

The great thing about the Flir is that it can scan large areas at once, without the need for the user to even move from their vantage point, and it can produce both still images and live video — which typically provides a clearer picture of fugitive emissions.

Here are some more great features of Flir optical gas imaging cameras:

  • Pinpoint harmful gas leaks in real time
  • Full temperature measurement calibration
  • GPS data for improved accuracy in reporting
  • Allows for large-scale inspections without interrupting work on-site
  • Reduces inspection time considerably
  • Traces leaks to the source
  • Flip out screen and zoom allows for inspection of hard-to-see locations
  • Spot leaks from yards away
  • Save money, time, and remain in compliance with environmental agencies
  • Gas leaks show up as black or white plume in thermal image, making it easy to identify
  • Meets requirements of EPA Sub-part W monitoring

Optical Gas Imaging Uses

The implementation of optical gas imaging at your facility can help save you time and money while avoiding complications and potentially disruptive gas leak events.

Not only does this provide increased safety to your employees and company, it also helps mitigate the damage caused to the environment by fugitive emissions which can often go undetected for large periods of time.

Whether inspecting gas and oil pipelines, refineries, storage tanks, or other areas, the Flir F320 streamlines the process like never before. The harmful gases which are detected by the thermal imaging technology include:

  • Benzene
  • Butane
  • Ethane
  • Ethanol
  • Ethylbenzene
  • Ethylene
  • Heptane
  • Hexane
  • Isoprene
  • Methyl Ethyl Keton
  • Methane
  • Methanol
  • MIBK
  • Octane
  • Pentane
  • 1-Pentane
  • Propane
  • Propylene
  • Toluene
  • Xylene
