Optical Gas Detection / Optical Gas Imaging


Gas emissions represent a significant liability for companies in the form of cost, safety, and potential environmental contamination.

Within a complex hydrocarbon production facility there may be many thousands of potential leaks paths. Some may be leaking but most will not. Using a gas detection camera allows the user to examine many potential leak sources in a short time and from a safe distance. Fugitive gas displays a leak as a plume of vapour in the infrared image.

Efficient and accurate leak identification

Some of the most common leak paths within a hydrocarbon production system are from:

Once a leak has been identified from a safe distance a traditional measuring device can be used to quantify the severity of the leak as part of an integrated LDAR (Leak Detection and Repair) strategy.
