Infrared Optical Gas Imaging: New Training Course Announced

4 – 6 September |ITC, West Malling, Kent, UK


Croissy-Beaubourg, FRANCE?? –?? FLIR Systems has been a leading light in the commercialisation of thermal imaging cameras across all wavelengths in the infrared spectrum. This has led to some important developments, including the application of infrared to gas detection.

This technology is increasingly being adopted by plants across the world for the visualisation and documentation of gas leaks. In recognition of its growing popularity in the UK and the rest of Europe that FLIR Systems’ Infrared Training Centre (ITC) has now added a specific training course on the subject.

A thermal infrared optical gas imaging thermal camera that can visualize Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) can be an extremely important tool for tracing dangerous gas leaks. It is a quick, non-contact measuring instrument.

It can detect small leaks from several metres away and big leaks from hundreds of metres away. It can even show leaks on moving vehicles, greatly improving the safety of both the inspector and the plant.

Another advantage is that systems do not have to be shut down during the inspection; measurements can be carried out remotely and rapidly.

The FLIR GasFindIR Course will be held from 4th to 6th September at ITC in West Malling, Kent, UK.

It will provide an understanding of why some VOCs appear as a visible cloud within the thermal image and basic guidance on reporting methods and onsite safety. This course is suitable for both those who already own an optical gas imaging camera, as well as those considering using the technology in their facility.
