FLIR Footage


FLIR stands for Forward Looking Infrared. Sensors in the camera detect infrared radiation, (usually emitted from a heat source), to create video output. FLIR can be used for leak detection and can visualize gas leaks in real time. It is able to identify 1-Pentene - 5.6g/hr, Benzene - 3.5g/hr, Butane -0.4g/hr, Ethane - 0.6g/hr, Ethanol - 0.7g/hr, Ethylbenzene - 1.5g/hr, Ethylene - 4.4g/hr, Heptane - 1.8g/hr, Hexane - 1.7g/hr, Isoprene - 8.1g/hr, MEK - 3.5g/hr, Methane - 0.8g/hr, Methanol - 3.8g/hr, MIBK - 2.1g/hr, Octane - 1.2g/hr, Pentane - 3.0g/hr, Propane - 0.4g/hr, Propylene - 2.9g/hr, Toluene - 3.8g/hr, and Xylene - 1.9g/hr.
