Optical Gas Imaging
Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) is used to detect and quantify a variety of industrial gases. Viper Imaging recommends these portable and fixed OGI camera systems from Sensia and Teledyne FLIR.
How it works: The camera detects a plume/cloud as a shadow that stands out against the thermal radiation from its surroundings. If the particular OGI system is equipped with quantification capability, the software colorizes the cloud and quantifies the mass flow rate of the leak.
Fixed systems for gas leak detection and emissions monitoring installation examples include natural gas processing plants, petrochemical facilities, high-value well sites, critical pipeline crossings, flare stack monitoring, and tank level monitoring.
Portable gas detection cameras are ideal for gas pipelines, gas storage facilities, electrical substations (SF6), chemical processing plants, and manufacturing plants.
