Vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) is one of the most widely produce petrochemicals in the world. It’s the main component of polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, which is used to make everything from pipes to bottles to credit cards. VCM is toxic, carcinogenic, and highly flammable -- becoming explosive at concentrations above 3.5%. For this reason, VCM leaks pose a significant hazard.
Gain a greater understanding of optical gas imaging (OGI) technology and how it can help you find and repair gas leaks quickly, saving time, money, and the environment. This new iBook offers:
Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras use spectral wavelength filtering and Sterling cooler cold filtering technology to visualize the infrared absorption of VOC/hydrocarbon, SF6, refrigerants, carbon monoxide and other gases whose spectral absorption matches the response of the camera.
This portable, non-contact system allows you to visualize VCM and quickly scan wide areas for leaks, so you can begin repairs sooner.
