Report FLIR Systems GF320 camera can uphold regulations
Using the high sensitivity mode (HSM) on the FLIR GF320 even the smallest of gas leaks can be spotted. A leak that barely shows up on the regular thermal image (left) shows up clearly in high sensitivity mode (right).
Meer, Belgium — The Dutch Environmental Protection Agency (DMCR) is shown in an applications report* and video describing how it is using a FLIR Systems GF320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera to uphold regulations regarding fugitive gas emissions.
After comparing several possible monitoring techniques, including Differential Absorption Light Detection (DIAL) and Solar Occultation Flux (SOF), the report details how the DMCR opted for a FLIR GF320 OGI camera as its primary method of choice to detect, and pinpoint to source, airborne environmental pollutants.
Technical specialists at DMCR decided that while complementary methods such as DIAL and SOF are robust and can quantify site wide emissions, these technologies are very expensive to purchase, requiring large trucks to carry the equipment and require a lot of training to be used effectively.
