EyeCGas® - Infrared Gas Leak Detector

Thermal Imagers are sensitive to the Infrared, which is a band in the electromagnetic spectrum.

Gases have their own characteristic absorption lines in the IR spectrum; VOC's and others have these lines in the region of the MWIR. The use of a thermal imager as an infrared gas leak detector adjusted to the region of interest will allow the gases to be visualized. Thermal imagers are sensitive to the absorption lines spectrum of the gases and designed to have the optical path sensitivity in correspondence with the gases in the spectrum area of interest. If a component is leaking, the emissions will absorb the IR energy, appearing as smoke black or white on the LCD screen.

The leaking gas temperature differs from the background temperature. The radiation getting to the camera is the background radiation from the background and the radiation from the gas area which obscures the background visualizing the existence of the gas.

The EyeCGas® is the only Infrared gas leak detector Camera specially designed for the Petrochemical, Gas & Oil market requirements for gas detection and Smart LDAR compliance.

The EyeCGas® allows the inspection of vast areas in a plant with an automated and simple user interface, visualizing the infrared image on a large color LCD.
Build-In DVR (Digital Video Recording) allows video and audio recording for up to 6 continuous hours.

Gas leak detection equipment is vital to keeping your employees, environment and product safe. EyeCGas® saves time in the search for fugitive gas leaks and provides confidence that equipment is free from leaks of methane and volatile organic compounds (VOC) and other gases..

  • Ideal for natural gas, oil, and petrochemical facilities.
  • High sensitivity detector can pinpoint the smallest leaks.
  • Certified for use in hazardous environments (Class 1, Div. 2 and ATEX II), allowing the inspection at hazardous places in the plant.
  • Implements an internal video and audio recording device.
  • Features a large color LCD display for image and text display.
  • Rugged and durable by design to be used as a tool in the field.

Rugged and durable certified for the use in hazardous locations. Simplifying and broadening opportunities for use inside the facility limits without the need of a hot work permit allowing video and audio recording while maintaining safety.
