What is optical gas imaging?

Optical gas imaging is the method of using thermal infrared cameras to visualize gas, including methane and many other organic gases. Thermal cameras are fast-acting gas leak detection devices. They help keep your workers, your workplace, and your environment safer.

How does optical gas imaging work?

Optical gas imaging (OGI) cameras and systems use a unique spectral filter method that enables the product to detect all hydrocarbons. Due to its many advantages, OGI has become the most effective hydrocarbon detector method across several industries — a shift from the legacy sniffer-based programs.

Using this method, gas leak detection cameras enable the user to uncover and visualize fugitive emission leaks from a safe distance, making it easier to identify the source of the leak. Quick detection facilitates fast repairs, preventing any major damage to the environment, and keeping your workers safe from harmful gas emissions. These measures help you avoid fines and decrease the loss of revenue and product.
