Introduction to Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) Technology

  • OGI Technology helps to find Gas / Vapor Leaks quickly, saving Time and Money.
  • OGI displays Invisible Gas Leak as Cloud of Smoke in Video Data.
  • OGI Operators can scan broad sections of Survey Areas and Equipment rapidly.
  • OGI helps to detect Methane, Sulfur hexafluoride, and hundreds of other VOC industrial gases.
  • OGI Program is great investment with significantly high RoI.
  • OGI Camera is Easy to Use with minimal Training Requirement.

Who should use OGI?

  • Maintenance Team to identify Leaking Components, Prioritize Repairs and check Repair Effectiveness.
  • Environmental Team to Inspect and Monitor Leaking Components for Fugitive Emissions and Leaks Analysis.
  • Safety Team to Inspect and Monitor Job Site for any possible Invisible Leaks leading to Hazards and Risks.
  • Pipeline Patrol Team to Detect and identify Random Emission Leak sources.
  • Liquid Fuel Storage Tank Operations Team to detect, identify and Monitor Emission Leaks.
  • Fuel Logistics Team to identify Transportation Wastage Emission Leaks.
  • Solid Fuel Storage and Handling Teams to identify OutGassing or Hotspots for timely preventive action.

Why use OGI Technology?

  • Visual Evidence based Emission Leak Identification, Tracking and Reporting.
  • Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis for prioritizing Component Emission Leak Repairs.
  • Cost-effective Gas / Vapor Leak Detection.
  • Can Operate to Detect Emission Leak from Safe distance.
  • Easy collaborate and share Component Emission Leak Video Data across teams.
  • Identify Emission Leaks when they are small and starting.
  • Highly accurate Emission Leak pin point location identification.
  • Can detect emission leak of inaccessible components.
  • Consistent and Reliable results.

How OGI Technology works?

  • Optical Gas Imaging is a highly specialized Infrared camera.
  • It uses quantum detectors which are cooled to cryogenic temperatures around -200℃ by Stirling Cooler.
  • Optical Gas Imaging uses spectral filter method to detect the gas compounds.
  • The gas compounds Infrared absorption characteristics is wavelength dependent.
  • The mounted filter allows very specific radiation wavelengths to pass through to cooled quantum detector.
  • When gas cloud exists between the background object and camera, the gas absorbs radiation.
  • The amount of radiation passing through the cloud to the cooled quantum detector will be reduced.
  • This radiation contrast between gas and background is captured by detector and converted into video data.
