MWIR for remote sniffing and locating of gases

MWIR for remote sniffing and locating of gases

08/01/2015

Methane is a greenhouse gas that is significantly more damaging than carbondioxide. When it leaks uncontrolled from industrial plants, it can easily escape into the atmosphere. This is seen primarily as an economic loss, but it also contributes to the destruction of the environment. Sensitive high-resolution mid-wave infrared (MWIR) cameras, such as our Onca-MWIR-InSb, can accurately detect such emissions without placing a direct-measurement gas-detection system in the danger zone. 

Gas leaking from a drilling platform

A March 2012 incident on the Elgin Wellhead gas drilling platform in the North Sea focused public attention on the risk connected with offshore mining of oil and gas. Elgin Wellhead is one of more than 400 rigs in the North Sea, and it is a significant part of the exploration of the Elgin/Franklin field.

World's first InGaAs camera photon emission microscope

Xenics enabled Semicaps to realize the world's first InGaAs camera photon emission microscope in 2004. Since then Xenics and sInfraRed have supported us in our endeavors for better sensitivity and resolution in photon and thermal emission microscopy.
