Flir course in gas imaging
Flir Advanced Thermal Solutions (ATS)
Flir will discuss important developments in imaging, including the application of infrared to gas detection.
The technology is increasingly being adopted by plants across the world for the visualisation and documentation of gas leaks.
As a result, FLIR Systems Infrared Training Centre (ITC) has now added a specific training course on the subject.
An optical gas imaging thermal camera that can visualise Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) can be an extremely important tool for tracing dangerous gas leaks.
It is a quick, non-contact measuring instrument. It can detect small leaks from several metres away and big leaks from hundreds of metres away.
It can even show leaks on moving vehicles, greatly improving the safety of both the inspector and the plant. Another advantage is that systems do not have to be shut down during the inspection; measurements can be carried out remotely and rapidly.
The FLIR GasFindIR course will be held from 4th to 6th September at ITC in West Malling, Kent, UK.
It will provide an understanding of why some VOCs appear as a visible cloud within the thermal image and basic guidance on reporting methods and onsite safety.
This course is suitable for both those who already own an optical gas imaging camera, as well as those considering using the technology in their facility.
FLIR ATS has announced a system for visualising HFC/CFC gas leaks.
The FLIR X8000sc and X6000sc cameras contain a 4-slot motorised filter wheel.
The FLIR GF306 uses Long Wave (LW) Infrared detector for greater sensitivity.
FLIR has introduced Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX) for its T450SC/650SC camera.
FLIR Systems has announced an updated 2013 edition of its ’Infrared Handbook for R&D Professionals‘.
