FEATURE GAS DETECTION


KEEPING AN EYE ON THE CONSUMPTION OF COSTLY GASES


SEEING THE INVISIBLE A B


uilding on its first uncooled methane- detecting GF77 Gas Find IR camera, FLIR


now offers two GF77 lens types for finding a wider variety of gases. With a design based on the ergonomic, award-winning FLIR T- Series camera platform, the FLIR GF77 makes it easy for inspection professionals to get the job done right. This affordable, handheld camera allows inspection professionals to see invisible gas leaks—including methane, sulfur hexafluoride, ammonia, and ethylene—at natural gas power plants, renewable energy production facilities, industrial plants, and other locations along the natural gas supply chain. The uncooled GF77 provides gas detection


capabilities at roughly half the price of cooled gas inspection thermal cameras. With the affordable price point lowering the barrier to entry, more professionals can access the technology to help keep them safe, saving your company time and money. The two new lenses—low-range (LR) for visualising methane, nitrous oxide, sulfur dioxide, R-134a, and R-152a, and high- range (HR) for visualising sulfur hexafluoride, ammonia, and ethylene—make affordable gas detection available for a wide variety of industrial gases. For customers


who already own a GF77 and would like to expand its capabilities, the FLIR service centre can calibrate any new lens purchased for that specific device. This innovative optical gas imaging camera


offers many unique and proven features, such as 1-Touch Level/Span and High Sensitivity Mode. With a quick tap on the screen, 1- Touch Level/Span automatically improves contrast between the gas compound and the background scene, minimising false detection and strengthening confidence. And for very low-contrast situations, the GF77 offers FLIR- patented High Sensitivity Mode (HSM) to accentuate plume movement. In addition to detecting gas emissions, the


GF77 is also calibrated for IR temperature measurement, so inspectors can use it as part of predictive maintenance programs, such as verifying tank levels and searching for electrical or mechanical issues without the need to change a lens. When it comes to getting the job done right


and building confidence in both your employees and clients, proof is key. With the FLIR GF77, you can organise your findings in the field using the camera’s built-in voice annotation, GPS tagging, customisable work folders, and Wi-Fi connections for video streaming or sharing. For reporting, the Thermal Studio Pro add-on offers an easy final comprehensive report option. Efficient leak detection and repair with


the GF77 will help protect the environment and your company’s reputation, while avoiding product losses and ensuring a safer work environment.

26 WINTER 2020 | INDUSTRIAL COMPLIANCE


ccurately measuring the usage of expensive industrial gases, such as argon, nitrogen,


carbon dioxide and helium, is easy with the new SD range of high-performance flow sensors from ifm electronic. And because they maintain high accuracy over their full measuring range, the new units also function as an invaluable aid to leakage detection. Typical applications include bottling and packaging machines in the food industry and welding, cutting or soldering processes in which protective gases are used. An important benefit of the new monitors is that,


in addition to flow rate, they measure flow quantity, pressure and temperature. In many applications, this means that they eliminate the need for additional sensors, saving money, minimising complexity and reducing the number of control system I/O channels needed. The sensors feature an IO-Link interface which


provides access to all measured values and which can also be used for parameterisation and for simulating the operation of the sensor before putting it into service. A colour display provides convenient local indication of the measured values, and the sensors also provide conventional analogue and switching outputs. ifm electronic offers its SD flow sensors for gas


consumption measurement in two configurations. The first is for use with argon, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and air. To ensure maximum accuracy, it is pre-programmed with the characteristics of each of these gases and it can be supplied in versions to measure flow rates from 0.05 to 225 Nm3


/h. The


second configuration is specially adapted for use with helium and available in versions to measure flow rates from 0.05 to 10 Nm3


/h. All versions have an admirable dynamic


performance with a T09 response time of 0.5s, and all can be used with media over the temperature range -10ºC to +60 ºC.
