Remote detection and localization of gas leaks with autonomous mobile inspection robots in technical facilities

Detection of gas leaks in industrial facilities cannot only be dangerous and time-consuming; it is also susceptible to human error and interpretation. In order to provide a safer, more efficient and more reliable detection solution, RoboGasInspector was conceived. This innovative robot system for remote detection and localization of gas leaks was developed by a range of German companies and institutes, and uses a FLIR GF320 optical gas imaging camera.

Czech utility company uses FLIR GF306 optical gas imaging to check for SF6 leaks

Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) is used as an insulating gas in the distribution of high voltage electrical power. It allows substation equipment to be more compact. SF6 is also a very potent greenhouse gas, however. Leaks in the equipment therefore not only endanger the continuity of power distribution, the leaks also have consequences for the environment.

FLIR optical gas imaging camera helps improve environment and safety at Borealis Stenungsund

Many petrochemical plants handle invisible gaseous hydrocarbons. Most of these gases pose some sort of safety aspects. They may be toxic, or can cause health issues in case of long term exposure. Others are highly flammable, explosive even, and most of them will have a negative impact on the environment if they enter the atmosphere in large quantities. That is why leak detection is of vital importance in these petrochemical plants.

Environmental protection with a FLIR optical gas imaging camera

Some industrial, pharmaceutical and petrochemical plants emit gases that can harm the environment and impede the health of company employees and inhabitants of the surrounding area. Environmental protection agencies have the responsibility to make sure that these emissions fall within governmental and international policy guidelines. To help them with that task environmental protection agencies can use an optical gas imaging camera.
