Environmental monitoring is now an important stake for industrial manufacturers, which requires to have highly sensitive instruments to ensure people safety and pollution reduction. To avoid high maintenance costs and severe risks of pollution, gas transportation companies need to efficiently detect gas leaks all along the pipelines, from the production site to the consumers. Industrials from the Oil & Gas industry are also experiencing the same challenges around or within their facilities. They need to properly control their emissions of gases such as NOx, Methane, Ammonia, Oxygen, NO, SO2, SO3, SF6 etc.
Some detection options can be considered between chemical, electrical and optical solutions. Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) has been identified as the most relevant technic for gas detection. Exosens proposes to OEMs and companies working to maintain industrial structures some short wave infra-red (SWIR) or thermal imaging solutions. LWIR cameras have become a popular tool, either for routine inspection or failure diagnosis, beside other advanced NDT non-destructive testing technologies. Overall, thermal cameras secure predictive maintenance, while limiting inspectors’ expositions to hazardous areas and supporting these environmental monitoring challenges.
