  • Gas Detection and Analysis Equipment for Chemical and Petrochemical

    In a complex petrochemical facility there may be many thousands of potential leaks paths. Some may be leaking but most will not. Using an infrared Gas Detection camera allows the user to examine many potential leaks sources in a short time and from a distance. The EPA acknowledged gas imaging cameras, such as Opgal’s EyeCGas®, as an approved Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) Method 21 alternate work practice (AWP).

  • Gas Detection Solutions for Aluminium

    Primary aluminium smelting generates large amounts of hydrogen fluoride gas (HF). Worker safety and ambient air quality concerns require that HF be monitored at several locations in smelters. Traditionally, a variety of chemical sampling methods have been used for HF monitoring in and around smelters. However, these methods are labour intensive and require ongoing maintenance and consumables. During the past decade, laser based HF analyzers have been replacing the traditional methods. Laser analyzers are compact, robust and reliable and provide accurate HF data. Fast response times that enable easy correlation of high HF emissions with work practices.

  • VOCs gas leak detection

    An oil refinery or petroleum refinery is an industrial process plant where crude oil is processed and refined into more useful petroleum products, such as naphtha, gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, kerosene, etc,. Oil refineries are typically large, sprawling industrial complexes with extensive piping running throughout, carrying streams of fluids between large chemical processing units. The refining process releases a number of different chemicals into the atmosphere mostly Hydrocarbons which cause severe health and safety hazards. Opgal`s EyeCGas Thermal Imager can detect the leaking gases from a distance and help reducing the threat

  • Gas Detection Solutions for Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) Safety

    Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) is a very useful chemical used in a variety of industries. However, HF is highly toxic with potential fatal consequences with exposure to humans, so facilities that make or use HF should exercise great care. Nevertheless, there is always the risk of leaks from process elements such as valves, pump seals and storage vessels. Tanker loading, transporting and unloading operations also provide opportunity for HF releases. Industrial processes that make or use HF typically have arrays of point sensors distributed throughout the unit. However, these sensors are maintenance intensive and have relatively slow response times. In addition, a point sensor will not detect an HF release unless it is located directly in the area of that release. Electrochemical HF sensors also respond to chlorine, ammonia, and sulfur dioxide, resulting in false alarms.

  • Gas analysis & monitoring systems for leak searching

    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.

  • Perimeter Monitoring and Area Monitoring

    GasFinder2 can be permanently installed to monitor chemical and petroleum plants for both combustible and toxic gases. GasFinder2 can be used to replace arrays of point sensors for perimeter monitoring. A single light path will replace many point sensors. With GasFinder2 perimeter monitoring, all gas dispersed from a facility is detected and logged.

  • Integrated real-time gas analysis solution for chemical decontamination industry

    The threat of terror in the form of chemical and biological warfare agents has been a reality globally since March 1995, when the Aum Shinrikyo sect killed 12 people and injured nearly 6,000 by releasing sarin nerve gas in the Tokyo subway system. More recently, the 2001 anthrax attacks in the USA was a wake-up call that the threat is real. Recent outbreaks of H1N1 and SARS posed threats of worldwide epidemics because air travel provides a means for these diseases to spread globally in less than 24 hours. A major concern of several US government agencies, such as the Department of Defense, Homeland Security, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is not only the detection of hazardous chemical and biological warfare agents (CBWA) or bacteria or viruses that pose an epidemic threat, but the timely decontamination of those agents to a level where they no longer pose a threat to human health and life. The solution requires a means to monitor the effectiveness of the decontaminating reactant or reactants to an endpoint that has been reliably shown to be more than 99% effective in rendering the targeted agents harmless under controlled conditions.

    Continuous emissions monitoring for sulphuric acid production plants

    The process control of a sulphuric acid plant needs good and reliable detection of gas phase sulphur dioxide (SO2). To measure SO2 is a challenge due to the corrosive environment and high concentration of SO2. Several places in the process needs to be monitored and to transport the sample gas is difficult. A large dynamic range is needed as the SO2 concentration can vary between 15% volume and a few mg/m3. Most systems installed need a lot of maintenance, sometimes as often as every day.

    Bromate analysis for the drinking water industry

    Bromate forms during the ozonization of drinking water. Several international standards stipulate detection limits and test methods. Conductivity detection with chemical suppression allows the determination of bromate in the lower μg/L range. In the ng/L range, bromate can be detected by IC/MS coupling or post-column derivatization with potassium iodide and subsequent UV detection.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for phosgene monitoring

    Phosgene COCl2 is a colorless gas. While it has been used as a Chemical Weapon Agent (CWA) in the past, currently this poisonous gas is also an important reagent in synthesis in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The plants using phosgene are typically equipped with gas sensors to detect leaks in the indoor ambient air. The critical situations arise when equipment in contact with the gas at the manufacturing facilities are serviced and maintained. As phosgene is very poisonous, even small gas pockets in serviced equipment may be dangerous to maintenance personnel. Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzers are ideal tools to monitor point sources of phosgene. The measurement technology has high specificity, may be operated continuously, and has a fast response time.

    Chemiluminescense based analyzer for semiconductor applications

    NOx detection is an innovative approach in CMP (Chemical Mechanical Polishing) process control. CMP smoothens the wafer surface with a combined chemical and mechanical polishing procedure. During production, wafers are coated by a thin layer. To avoid damage to the wafer surface, for instance by stress cracks, the NOx emitted as soon as the wafer is plane and blank must be measured. Therefore, a high-resolution NOx-detector, capable of determining exactly when the polishing process must be stopped, is essential. This approach is used successfully in manufacturing and development lines worldwide, since 1996.
