FLIR launches thermal image analysis and reporting software

FLIR Systems, Inc. introduced FLIR Thermal Studio, a thermal image analysis and reporting software designed to manage large sets of thermal images and videos. Engineered for thermographers who use FLIR thermal handheld cameras, optical gas imaging (OGI) cameras, and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) with thermal cameras, FLIR Thermal Studio's advanced processing capabilities and automation are designed to streamline workflow and increase productivity.

Uncooled methane gas detection camera from FLIR scales up LDAR programs

FLIR Systems, Inc. has launched the FLIR GF77 Gas Find IR, its first uncooled thermal camera designed for detecting methane. This handheld camera offers inspection professionals the features they need to find potentially dangerous, invisible methane leaks at natural gas power plants, renewable energy production facilities, industrial plants, and other locations along a natural gas supply chain. The GF77 provides methane gas detection capability at roughly half the price of cooled gas inspection thermal cameras, to empower the oil and gas industry to reduce emissions and ensure a safer work environment.

FLIR launches industry-first high-definition handheld cooled optical gas imaging camera for oil and gas inspection professionals

FLIR Systems, Inc. has introduced what it calls the industry's first high-definition (HD), handheld optical gas imaging (OGI) camera, the FLIR GF620. Designed for oil and gas industry professionals, the GF620 camera sets a new standard for detecting and visualizing invisible leaks of hydrocarbons, such as methane, and common volatile organic compounds (VOCs). With four times the pixels of previous models, the HD resolution GF620 helps inspectors survey for fugitive hydrocarbon emissions from further, safer distances than possible with lower-resolution OGI cameras.

Optical gas imaging tools for the oil and gas industry

Infrared (IR) thermal imaging cameras have been used for decades for a variety of oil and gas applications, including electrical/ mechanical inspections, tank level inspections, and even examinations of pipe integrity within process equipment. In recent years, new optical gas imaging (OGI) technology has been developed which can "see" hydrocarbon gases and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are venting or leaking to the atmosphere. OGI can be used for meeting regulatory emission reduction requirements, while also helping to reduce product loss, which in turn provides positive return on investment. OGI cameras are a huge time saver compared to other inspection technologies and also offer safety advantages for operators. Major energy companies are using OGI cameras like the FLIR GF320 to quickly check thousands of components and identify potential gas leaks in real-time.

Intrinsically safe gas detection thermal camera

FLIR Systems, Inc. announced the FLIR GFx320, an optical gas imaging (OGI) camera for the oil and gas industry that is designed for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. The FLIR GFx320 detects and visualizes invisible hydrocarbon gas emissions, such as methane, and common volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found at oil and natural gas facilities. It carries certifications to global standards and is recognized as Intrinsically Safe, explosion-protected equipment by the International Electrotechnical Commission.

Optical gas imaging cameras earn independent certification

FLIR Systems, Inc. has announced that the FLIR GF320 and GF300 optical gas imaging (OGI) cameras have received sensitivity standard validation by UK-based National Physical Laboratory (NPL), making them compliant with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) OOOOa Methane rule for the oil and gas industry.

Optical gas imagers offer options for leak detection

The discovery of a massive methane leak at the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility near Los Angeles in October 2015 brought national attention to safety and environmental concerns over natural gas production, processing and storage. The well blowout released an estimated 97,100 metric tons of methane and 7,300 metric tons of ethane over a fourmonth period, making it the largest natural gas leak in the United States’ history.

IR camera enhances leak detection capabilities

FLIR Systems, Inc. has added the Therma-CAM Gas-FindIR HSX to its line of GasFindIR infrared cameras for the detection of VOCs. GasFindIR has been used extensively in oil and gas, and petrochemical companies as a way to find gas leaks as part of their predictive maintenance programs. The GasFindIR HSX delivers high-volume scanning to productively spot leaks in tank cars, pipelines and facilities. “FLIR’s GasFindIR cameras are proven in a number of applications within the petrochemical, oil and gas industries. The latest GasFindIR HSX reflects growing demand from our customers to help find smaller leaks faster before they become catastrophic,” said Paul Czerepuszko, director of business development, FLIR Systems.

GasFindIR detects carbon monoxide, ensures safety

The new ThermaCAMÆ GasFindIR CO infrared camera detects carbon monoxide that is created during a variety of industrial processes. “FLIR’s GasFindIR camera is ready to address the issue of CO leak detection as it addressed leak detection for VOCs for the petrochemical, oil and gas industries in terms of predictive maintenance, improving efficiencies and safety,” said Paul Czerepuszko, director of business development for FLIR Systems. “While other types of sensors can detect the presence of CO, only GasFindIR can scan wide areas from a distance to quickly identify the emission at its source allowing for improved worker safety and greater efficiencies.” The GasFindIR CO is optimized to work in an environment and climate scene in which gases are present. These three user-selectable integration modes, Normal Scene, Cold Scene, and Hot Scene can be selected at 60 Hz. GasFindIR CO has an advanced cooled InSb detector and optical systems that are tuned to very narrow spectral infrared images for detection of very small leaks that can easily go unidentified with other detection devices.
