Midwave Infrared (MWIR) cameras work by capturing images below the red end of the visible color spectrum at the peak absorption of emissions of hydrocarbon gases such as methane, propane and butane, which are often odorless and invisible to the naked eye. Using these MWIR cameras to detect emissions helps guarantee the safety of people working in the oil and gas industry, as well as help protect the environment and reduce costs of repairs.
