Optical gas imaging camera helps improve safety at petrochemical plant

09 April, 2014

Many petrochemical plants handle invisible gaseous hydrocarbons. Most of these gases pose some sort of safety issue. They may be toxic or can cause health issues in case of long-term exposure. Others are highly flammable, explosive even, and most of them will have a negative impact on the environment if they enter the atmosphere in large quantities. That is why leak detection is of vital importance in these petrochemical plants.
