Safety Through Effective Gas Detection, Identification, And Imaging In Oil & Gas Environments

Source: TELOPS

Safety is a major concern for oil and gas companies since the environments they operate in often include many toxic industrial chemicals and gases with high explosive potential. Constant monitoring with reliable gas detection and identification systems has become a crucial part of the equation to keep on-site personnel safe and prevent damage or loss of installations. In this regard, infrared remote sensing technology offers many advantages over traditional gas detection systems as they allow monitoring and imaging of a scene from a distant and safe location. Telops has recently developed the Hyper-Cam GDI, a versatile gas detection, identification and imaging system based on infrared remote sensing technology which significantly improves the ability to handle gas leaks and emissions in oil & gas installations.
