FLIR Systems has introduced Gas Find IR, a tool to help petrochemical plants to detect gas leaks immediately. GasFindIR enables its users to scan thousands of components per shift and spot small gas leaks from a safe distance.
They can safely monitor big leaks from meters away and detect leaks in moving tank cars. The infrared camera GasFindIR allows one to spot methane and other volatile organic compound gas leaks quickly and easily. Capable of rapidly scanning large areas and even kilometres of pipeline.
The infrared camera delivers real-time thermal images of gas leaks. These leaks appear as black smoke on-screen allowing one to see fugitive gas emissions. GasFindIR inverts the physics of fugitive volatile organic compound gas leaks.
GasFindIR is an infrared camera, scanning at 25 Hz PAL or 25 images per second with easy archiving, documenting and emailing. This increases productivity by allowing workers to scan miles of piping from moving vehicles or pan wide-angle for broad views of piping systems without image distortion or smear.
GasFindIR is a rugged piece of equipment designed specifically for use in harsh industrial environments. It contains a cooled Indium Antimonide detector which produces crisp infrared images of 320 x 240 pixels on which the smallest details are visible. GasFindIR operates in a wide temperature range of minus 15°C to plus 50°C, with a 40G industrial shock rating.
The GasFindIR is lab-tested to detect Benzene, Butane, Ethane, Ethyl benzene, Ethylene, Heptane, Hexane, Isoprene, MEK, Methane, Methanol, MIBK, Octane, Pentane, 1-Pentane, Propane, Propylene, Toluene, and Xylene.
