Infrared Gas Leak Detection Service

Safety Scan specializes in the use of optical gas imaging that uses infrared thermal imaging to locate hydrocarbon gas leaks. We use a state-of-the-art technology known as Flir GF320 gas finder video cameras. These highly specialized infrared cameras deliver real-time thermal images of gas leaks.

Optical emission detection is a relatively new technology that has been developed to provide rapid, accurate and safe identification of fugitive gas emissions. This technology enables the operator to “see” emissions of hydrocarbon gas that are normally invisible. The thermal imaging facilitates precise identification of the source of the leak, essential for repair activities.

The benefits of optical leak imaging include:

> Scan hard-to-reach components from a safe distance
> Cost-effectively scan hundreds of components simultaneously
> Identify exact source of leaks in real-time
> Assessments performed without interruption of operations
> Direct access with portable, battery-powered camera
> Provides video records and GPS tagged pictures of the emission sources
> Meets requirements of EPA Subpart W monitoring
