  • BP Chemicals Enhances Site Safety With FLIR Infrared

    BP Chemicals is a world renowned company in the production of acetic acid, and is responsible for a significant portion of the world’s capacity. Every year the company invests many millions of pounds in improving production efficiency, minimizing environment impact, and protecting their employees. With personnel safety in mind, BP Chemicals is now taking a fresh look at how FLIR thermal imaging can help minimize leaks.

  • Remote Detection And Localization Of Gas Leaks With Autonomous Mobile Inspection Robots In Technical Facilities

    The process of detecting gas leaks within industrial facilities can be susceptible to human error and interpretation, not to mention that it could be dangerous and time-consuming. The RoboGasInstector is a type of robot system that was created with the intention of providing a safer, more efficient, and more reliable gas detection solution. This system delivers remote detection and localization of gas leaks, and was developed by a group of German companies and institutes. It uses a FLIR GF302 optical gas imaging camera.

  • FLIR GF320 Used To Detect Gas Leakage In Biogas Facilities

    As awareness of leaks within biogas facilities has grown over the past few years, gas camera technology has also increased in use in order to easily show leaks. Biogas leaks raise the potential risk for health and environment safety, and may result in losses to system efficiency. Security risks can also arise when escaping gases form explosive mixtures and place employees and the facility in danger. This application note explains how the FLIR GF320 was used to assess leakage in biogas facilities, and how using this camera offers numerous advantages over conventional gas detection measurements.

  • Forensic Investigations Using Thermography And Steam

    Investigators are continuously searching for an optimal solution for finding concrete blood evidence in less-than-ideal circumstances. This is especially important when working with fabrics carrying diluted blood stains, which could easily be affected by the common practice of adding liquid luminol. Chemistry researchers at the University of South Carolina are investigating an alternative method for detecting and recording evidence of biological fluids. With the use of steam and infrared cameras from FLIR, the team was able to visualize blood with astonishing chemical contrast.

  • Catnip Cultivation May Offer Natural Mosquito Repellent Alternative

    Mosquitos cause constant concern in tropical regions since they can carry deadly diseases such as Malaria, Dengue Fever, and the Zika virus. Amid the global efforts to control outbreaks of Zika and other mosquito-borne diseases, new efforts are being made to develop natural mosquito repellents that can grow easily in affected regions. Some plant-based repellents can be initially as effective as DEET, but most evaporate too quickly and leave the user unprotected. One plant that shows promise is catnip. Researchers have developed a “super-catnip” with enhanced bioactive compounds while making it easier to grow commercially.

  • Hot Biology: Investigating The Thermal Physiology Of Birds And Mammals

    It may be surprising to realize that many details of the thermal biology of animals are unknown. To try and fill the gaps in this knowledge, researchers at the Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine at the University of Glasgow, Scotland are using FLIR thermal imaging technologies to learn as much as possible in order to help animals in the long run.

  • FLIR Thermal Science Cameras Support Medical Research

    Tissue auto-fluorescence spectroscopy is utilized in biomedical research for differentiating between normal and diseased tissue. This technique measures the intrinsic light emissions from biological agents upon excitation by a light source. However, the relationship between auto-fluorescence and temperature has not been well defined. In order to better understand this relationship, researchers are currently conducting experiments with the help of a FLIR thermal imaging camera.
