FLIR Systems offers the FLIR GF320 optical gas imaging camera to aid the oil and gas industries better control hydrocarbon emissions, preserving the environment and improving operational safety. The real-time infrared camera is designed for use in harsh industrial environments. It takes advantage of a focal plane array detector and optical systems tuned to very narrow spectral infrared ranges. This enables the camera to image infrared energy absorbed by hydrocarbon gas leaks. Images are processed and enhanced by the FLIR High Sensitivity Mode feature to clearly show the presence of gases against stationary backgrounds. Gases detectable by the camera appear on-screen as smoke plumes. In the offshore oil and gas industry, the camera offers operators a preventive maintenance tool to help spot hydrocarbon leaks in tanks, pipelines and facilities.
