OPGAL offers new optical gas imaging technology for gas leak detection

10/26/2016

KARMIEL, Israel -- OPGAL, a manufacturer of thermal imaging infrared cameras, is launching two new products to monitor and detect carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO) gas leaks in oil and gas and other heavy industries.

EyeCGas CO2 and EyeCGas CO will enable operators to safely, efficiently and cost-effectively detect and monitor harmful gasses including CO2 and CO in remote and hazardous locations. Optical gas imaging (OGI) technology enables the visualization of leaks remotely, offering significant benefits over traditional methods, such as electrochemical or catalytic detectors, which are time and labor intensive and rely upon detecting gas in close proximity.

By using the infrared gas imaging cameras, operators can immediately identify, source and record video of CO2 gas leaks of concentrations as low as 3%, with pinpoint accuracy. This enables companies to prioritize maintenance and quickly repair leaks – shortening start-up times to resume production.

Developed in response to market demand, the technologies build on the success of OPGAL’s original EyeCGas camera for the detection of volatile organic compounds and hydrocarbon leaks, which has already been implemented with major oil and gas customers in the U.S., Asia and Europe.
