Product description

Gas leaks can mean disaster for anyone working in petrochemical refineries and plants, as well as vast environmental damages and the loss of billions of dollars. Gas leaks are typically detected during scheduled maintenance activities or through sensors that can only detect large-scale gas leaks - but soon, plants will be able to have their premises monitored in real time to detect even smaller gas leaks: Drawing on its expertise as a manufacturer of optical equipment and lenses, Konica Minolta is «making the invisible visible» by combining its high-resolution lenses with cutting-edge Far Infrared Technology (FIR) to detect leaks that previously went undetected.

A single camera, positioned high above the plant, enables the continuous monitoring of areas of up to 50,000m2. The combination of the FIR and regular visibility camera elements then allows Konica Minolta's proprietary gas detection algorithm to superimpose the movement of gas, detected by the FIR camera, on top of the regular camera images to instantly pinpoint the location and amount of any gas leakage. Staff gain valuable seconds to initiate maintenance and emergency procedures that can save lives, protect the environment and safeguard the infrastructure. In addition, by utilising advanced analytics and machine learning, the camera facilitates the tracking of pipeline corrosion to help predict future leaks and avoid unnecessary plant shutdowns.
