Optical Gas Imaging

FLIR optical gas imaging (OGI) cameras can help you detect methane, sulfur hexafluoride, and hundreds of other industrial gases quickly, accurately, and safely - without shutting down systems. With FLIR OGI cameras, you can scan broad sections of equipment rapidly and survey areas that are hard to reach with traditional contact measurement tools. OGI cameras can also detect leaks from a safe distance, displaying these invisible gases as clouds of smoke.

FLIR received third-party validation of the FLIR GFx320, GF320, GF300, and G300a cameras' compliance with the following sensitivity standard laid out by the EPA in the NSPS OOOOa methane rule:

Your optical gas imaging equipment must be capable of imaging a gas that is half methane, half propane at a concentration of 10,000 ppm at a flow rate of ≤60g/hr from a quarter inch diameter orifice.

Providence Photonics

FLIR Systems partners with Providence Photonics on the announcement of new Quantitative Optical Gas Imaging (qOGI) technology, which is designed to work solely with FLIR GF-Series cameras. By using Providence Photonics’ QL320TM or QL100TM in conjunction with a FLIR GFx320 or GF320 camera, surveyors can measure mass leak rates (lb/h or g/h) or volumetric leak rates (cc/min or L/min) for most hydrocarbons.
