Optical Gas Imaging (OGI):

FLIR products are known to be used for Optical Gas Imaging

OGI cameras can be ordered as a fixture or a portable device. It is best to ask the Yellotec experts which device will suit your needs. Fixed OGI cameras are used for continuous gas monitoring where portable OGI cameras are easier to carry around, can be quicker and more effective than sniffers.

Fixed Optical Gas Imaging cameras from FLIR can visualize and pinpoint gas leaks without the need to shut down the operation. With an OGI camera, it is easy to continuously scan installations that are in remote areas or in zones that are difficult to access. Continuous monitoring means that you will immediately see when a dangerous or costly gas leak appears so that immediate action can be taken. Different OGI cameras detect different gases. It is important to discuss these cameras with the Yellotec team to ensure that you are purchasing the OGI camera that is best suited to your needs.
