Thermal Imaging for Manufacturing

Federal regulations specify thousands of inspection points and how often they must be monitored. A comprehensive system for testing and repairing those leaks can yield competitive advantage by reducing maintenance and inspection costs while increasing worker safety, improving environmental quality inside the facility and outside as well.

 

Ensure Air Quality

FLIR GF-Series infrared cameras are being used by Environmental Enforcement to ensure that existing air quality or internal systems for removing chemicals are functioning properly. They can detect dozens of volatile organic compounds that might otherwise go unnoticed. At a tire plant, a plastics raw materials facility and a natural gas company, infrared thermography matches a particular gas and displays it on the camera’s screen and video recording display the findings as a plume of vapor or smoke.

Scanning Large Areas

State environmental agencies used FLIR GF-Series infrared cameras mounted on helicopters to monitor large areas for chemical emissions after the 2005 hurricanes that battered the US Gulf Coast. Federal environmental officials in other states are exploring how infrared technology can improve the speed, accuracy and reporting standards for various industries – from gas stations to dry cleaners.

Infrared Cameras for Manufacturing Applications

FLIR GF306 Infrared Camera  

FLIR GF306 Infrared Cameras

FLIR GF306 thermal camera detects and visualizes SF6 (Sulfur Hexafluoride) and 25 other harmful gases quickly from a safe distance and without the need to interrupt your plant's production process.


FLIR GF300 / GF320 Infrared Camera  

FLIR GF300 / GF320 Infrared Cameras

FLIR GF320 thermal camera is a preventative maintenance solution to spot leaks in piping, flanges and connections in petrochemical operations. The thermal camera can rapidly scan large areas and pinpoint leaks in real time.


FLIR GF343 Infrared CO2 Detection Cameras  

FLIR GF343 Infrared CO2 Detection Cameras

The GF343 is an optical gas imaging camera that lets you see CO2 leaks quickly, easily, and from a safe distance. Fast and accurate detection of CO2 leaks can be vital to safe, efficient operations with minimal down time.
