Thermal Imaging for Petrochemical Facilities & Refineries

In refineries and other petrochemical facilities, equipment failure can lead to lost profits and even potential injury. What you can't see can definitely hurt you.

Repair Leaking Components Before it´s Too Late

The use of infrared cameras has already become a standard practice in many oil and gas companies. It’s a proactive way to identify sources of Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions and repair leaking components before it is too late. By using the most advanced VOC detection, you will improve safety and productivity and minimise emissions. 

Thermal Imaging for Environmental Enforcement

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 a 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's GasFindIR infrared camera is being used by Environmental Enforcement in the USA to ensure that existing air quality or internal systems for removing chemicals are functioning properly. It can detect dozens of volatile organic compounds that might otherwise go unnoticed. At a tyre plant, a plastics raw materials facility and a natural gas company, infrared thermography matches a particular gas and displays it on the IR camera’s screen. The video recording displays the findings as a plume of vapour or smoke.

Scanning Large Areas with Infrared

In the USA, state environmental agencies used FLIR's GasFindIR infrared cameras mounted on helicopters to monitor large areas for chemical emissions after the 2005 hurricanes that battered the US Gulf Coast. And 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 drycleaners.

 

Thermal Imaging for Service Companies

Gas detection is an exact science, requiring a significant investment. That’s why some organisations may choose to outsource gas detection services they cannot perform on their own.

 

FLIR has long-term relationships with gas detection service companies that use infrared cameras as a key component of the service they offer. The service companies also benefit from the training FLIR offers to support their business needs.

 

For more than 50 years, a number of service companies worldwide have used FLIR infrared cameras to keep their customers’ operations running at peak efficiency.

 

Safely Spot Gas Leaks

FLIR GF-Series infrared cameras for the oil and gas industry are preventative maintenance solutions that help spot leaks in tanks, pipelines and facilities. This will improve safety and profitability and minimise emissions with less risk of business interruption due to actions from regulatory agencies. Capable of rapidly scanning large areas and miles of piping, these highly specialised infrared cameras or thermal imagers find gas leaks fast.

Thermal Imaging for Oil & Gas Extraction

The Oil and Gas industry depends on thermography to avoid costly and dangerous emissions. Infrared cameras help pinpoint gas leaks before trouble strikes and service is affected. That's why infrared thermography is important to predictive maintenance programs around the world.
