OPGAL launches imaging technology

OPGAL has announced that it will soon launch two new products. The products are designed to monitor and detect carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO) gas leaks in pipelines.

Traditional methods tend to be time and labour intensive, relying on detecting gas in close proximity. Both EyeCGas CO2 and EyeCGas CO allow operators to safely, efficiently and cost-effectively detect and monitor harmful gases, including CO2 and CO in remote and hazardous locations. Optical gas imaging (OGI) allows for remote visualisation of leaks, in turn offering significant benefits over traditional methods, such as electrochemical or catalytic detectors.

By using infrared gas imaging cameras, operators can immediately identify, source and record a video of CO2 gas leaks of concentrations as low as 3% with pinpoint accuracy. This allows companies to repair leaks quickly and thus prioritise maintenance.

Omer Yanai, Vice President of Gas Imaging and Technology Innovation at OPGAL, commented: “These new products were designed specifically for hazardous environments and will enable companies to quickly detect and source harmful gas emissions in applications such as enhanced oil recovery.”

“It’s crucial for companies to detect, monitor and repair leaks quickly to protect people and the environment and optimise production. The new EyeCGas cameras bring OGI technology to a wider set of industrial applications and the benefits are clear.”
