A new low-cost infrared camera makes it possible to quickly and efficiently detect gas leaks that can occur in different industrial facilities. The system can detect gas leaks that are normally invisible to the human eye thanks to a camera that recognizes the infrared signature of these compounds (infrared is electromagnetic and thermal radiation with longer wavelengths than visible light).

The Gas Sensing System (GSS) makes it possible to visualize a wide range of gases such as methane, natural gas, liquefied petroleum gases, coolants, etc. The portable equipment allows a technician to make periodic inspections, or they can install a permanent monitoring system within a closed-circuit TV that generates automatic alerts when it detects a leak.
