Inspectahire uses FLIR GF cameras, operated by highly trained, qualified personnel, to carry out optical gas surveys. The cameras are used to conduct a visual inspection to detect gas emissions in a wide range of industries and applications.
Surveys for sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) are provided for clients in the energy and power generation sector. The gas is frequently used as a dielectric insulating material in electrical transformers.
Optical gas imaging using thermal cameras provides a number of benefits compared to traditional gas detection instruments because they scan a broader area much more rapidly and in areas that are difficult to reach with contact measurement tools.
Infrared displays show a gas leak as a plume of vapor on screen. Once a leak is found, from a safe distance, a toxic vapour analyser (TVA) can be used to quantify the precise concentration.
Inspectahire is the authorised distributor of FLIR cameras for Europe and the Middle East, as well as owning a suite of the products and operating them as part of thermographic surveys for clients. The company is also an authorised training company for FLIR OGI.
