October 23, 2006 - Suited for petrochemical facilities, ThermaCAMŽ GasFindIR(TM) utilizes infrared imager employing sensitive detector and cold filter to observe active leaks of VOCs such benzene, propane, and methane. Real-time thermal images of gas leaks appear as black smoke onscreen. Users can capture and record images to any off-the-shelf video recorder for archiving, documenting, or emailing.

Boston, MA -As a result of extensive research and development from the world's global leader in infrared cameras, FLIR Systems has developed the ThermaCAMŽ GasFindIR(TM), a new infrared imaging technology that is superior in finding VOC leaks, which is great news for both the environment and the petrochemical industry.

As a result of extensive research and development from the world's global leader in infrared cameras, FLIR Systems has developed the ThermaCAMŽ GasFindIR(TM), a new infrared imaging technology that is superior in finding VOC leaks, which is great news for both the environment and the petrochemical industry.

FLIR's GasFindIR(TM) infrared camera is the tool needed to aid in eliminating VOC leaks, which are a common problem in petrochemical facilities. These costly leaks of benzene, propane, and methane lead to global warming, equipment damage, regulatory fines, and even pose a deadly risk to workers. The GasFindIR(TM) incorporates the latest infrared imaging technology by using a special infrared imager employing a sensitive detector and cold filter to observe active leaks. This precise method surpasses toxic vapor analyzers (TVA's), or "sniffers" which are labor intensive and can only give an indication of a VOC leak without an image.

The GasFindIR's(TM) innovative technology allows what was once invisible to be clear and present. Real-time thermal images of gas leaks appear as "black smoke" onscreen, when in fact they are fugitive gas emissions. Capture and record your images to any off -the-shelf video recorder for easy archiving, documenting or emailing.

The GasFindIR(TM) is truly revolutionary since it enables workers to scan large areas to detect leaks, therefore greatly increasing productivity. Not only will the environment benefit from less VOC leaks, but petrochemical facilities can now easily improve their efficiency and profitability.
