Gas analysis & monitoring system for leak searching - Monitoring and Testing - Leak Detection

Many chemical compounds and gas are invisible to the naked eye. But there are many companies that make intensive use both during and after the production process. The manner and frequency with which companies are required to monitor, document, report and rectify any escape of volatile gaseous compounds are established by regulations extremely rigid. The technology most widely used is the “Imaging Camera” or “sniffer technology.” “When we look for gas leaks, check all systems in places that may or may not have been previously identified. These controls are carried out regularly and are very important after a shutdown.

When performing maintenance, it is vital that engineers are able to get a picture as complete as possible the conditions of a plant

An imaging system of the gas leak is an essential tool for the detection of potential failures. Experience shows that less than 1% of the plant can be concentrated a percentage of joints up to 84%. This means that 99% of inspection tools, expensive and wasteful in terms of time, is used to analyze and safe components intact. The use of a video camera in this field allows considerable savings in terms of both time and personnel. Current technologies can expose technical invisible chemicals and potentially dangerous and do not consider wind and weather factors that affect the accuracy of measurements

Under the control of industrial emissions assessment of a gas and vapor pollutants from pipes, valves, pumps, fittings etc.. is a problem not easily solved responsible for the environment and safety.

Gas leaks (fugitive emissions) from large chemical and petrochemical installations can easily become dangerous in the event of breakdowns or accidents to plants, and their dissemination in the environment can cause immissioninocive to the health of workers and local residents in the immediate vicinity .

Gas leaks due to malfunctioning or incidents on the plants, especially in the case of chemical and petrochemical industries, may be the main emission factor and represent the most frequent cause of annoyance and discomfort for the people residing in the district.

In addition to incidental factors are often present permanent factors such as ventilation of the storage tanks and emissions from vents, torches, fireplaces or small sewage circuits.

Environmental regulations and requirements in the industries at risk of a major accident requiring the adoption of monitoring systems more efficient.

The use of imaging techniques in the field with camera equipment that imposes high requirements both to those who use it: it is often essential to maintain a safe distance from the object that is being tested or, in other cases, understand how to approach a sufficient distance. Sometimes you have to climb or inspect for hours on a large plant. Consequently, the weight and dimensions of the equipment are two extremely important factors.

GasVue TG30 contributes to the safety and efficient operation of our facilities. It offers direct and tangible results and allows you to rest assured. It is particularly useful when inspecting high pressure systems, where the risk of leakage is greater.

In this context, the camera has become a must-have tool.

A camcorder can find numerous uses for the safe inspection of a facility. The use of imaging techniques and offers a number of advantages, for example it is not necessary to turn off the system during the inspection, it is possible to take measurements at a distance quickly and at relatively low cost and, more importantly, you can identify problems early.
