  • Flir Revises Gas Detection Guide
Dec 2010
CROISSY-BEAUBOURG, France, Dec. 16, 2010 — A revised version of Flir Advanced Thermal Solutions’ popular publication, “Gas Detection – the Professional Guide,” is now available, the company said.

The 40-page guide leads readers through what an infrared gas detection camera is and how it works, the advantages of infrared gas detection, the applications for mid-wave and long-wave gas detection cameras, as well as how customers are benefiting from the company’s GasFindIR technology.

Proving to be a superior technology for finding hidden mechanical and electrical faults, infrared cameras have revolutionized maintenance in many industries. In addition, the cameras are suitable for locating invisible gas leaks.

Free copies of the guide can be requested at the company’s website.

Flir designs, manufactures and supports thermal imaging systems and subsystems for industrial, scientific, governmental, commercial and firefighting applications.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
infrared camera
A camera that uses infrared optics to image and focus infrared radiation onto a recording medium sensitive to its wavelengths.
thermal imaging
The process of producing a visible two-dimensional image of a scene that is dependent on differences in thermal or infrared radiation from the scene reaching the aperture of the imaging device.
