‘10 tips to get the most out of your optical gas imaging camera’
Optical gas imaging (OGI) cameras utilise spectral wavelength filtering and sterling cooler cold filtering technology to visualise the infrared absorption of VOCs/hydrocarbons, SF6, refrigerants, carbon monoxide and other gases whose spectral absorption matches the response of the camera. According to Flir Systems, to get the most out of your OGI equipment you should consider these 10 tips.

The GF320 series of optical gas imaging cameras from FLIR Systems is being used to identify leaks and unexpectedly high discharges of methane resulting from fracking operations to extract gaseous hydrocarbons from shale and coal deposits.
FLIR Systems’ proprietary ‘superframing’ technique has been developed to extend the effective scene brightness of a thermal image while maintaining its thermal contrast.
FLIR Systems has introduced three thermal cameras for optical gas detection: the G300a, the G300pt and the A6604. These cameras are designed for monitoring gas pipelines and installations from safe distances.
FLIR Systems has revealed that the optical gas imaging (OGI) technique has been included in the final draft of the EU chemical sector BREF document, which looks at best available techniques for emissions regulation in this industry sector. OGI is identified as a best available technique for measurement of diffuse emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to air.
Flir Systems has introduced its latest thermal-imaging core, Muon, which is designed specifically for volume OEMs capable of integrating uncooled FPAs into their own camera solutions.
