Many gases and chemical compounds are invisible to the naked eye, and strict regulations control how companies trace, document, rectify and report any leaks. The limitations of earlier probes and 'sniffer' technologies meant they could be inaccurate and time-consuming, and could expose inspectors to potential harm.

Inspectahire supplies the FLIR range of optical gas infrared cameras, which enable the fast, acurate and safe detection of hundreds of industrial gases including methane and sulfur hexafluoride, without the need for shutting down systems.

FLIR gas detection cameras for improved environmental sustainability

FLIR cameras are able to visualise fugitive gas emissions using infrared technology. The cameras produce a full picture of a scanned area and leaks appear as smoke on the camera's viewfinder or LCD. The image is viewed in real time, and can also be recorded for reporting later.

Suitability

FLIR cameras can be used to detect gas leaks from many different sources in the petrochemical industry. Some of the most common sources include:

  • Flanges
  • Valve stems
  • Plugs and caps
  • Machinery
  • Couplings
  • Pump seals
  • Holes
  • Passing valves
  • Drain covers
  • Instrument connections

Detectable gases

FLIR cameras can detect a wide range of gases and volatile gaseous compounds, including:

  • Benzene
  • Butane
  • Ethane
  • Ethylbenzene
  • Ethylene
  • Heptane
  • Hexane
  • Isoprene
  • MEK
  • Methane
  • Methanol

FLIR cameras

Inspectahire supplies a wide range of FLIR models, including the ATEX-certified GFx320. FLIR cameras are suitable for a wide range of applications and can be fitted with a range of lenses including, for example, a 6-degree telephoto lens that allows flares to be viewed from a distance.
