  • Thermal sensitivity/NETD: <15 mK @ +30°C (+86°F)
  • Operating temperature range: –20°C to +50°C (–4°F to +122°F)
  • Gases detected: Benzene, ethanol, ethylbenzene, heptane, hexane, isoprene, methanol, methyl ethyl ketone, MIBK, octane, pentane, 1-pentene, toluene, m-xylene, ethane, butane, methane, propane, ethylene, propylene

ViperView Camera Control Software

The ViperView camera control software provides unique remote control of high-end FLIR thermal sensors.

It allows the user to toggle through preset palettes and measurement profiles, set temperature range, and record, pause, and stop SEQ files.

  • Control temperature range
  • Start, Pause, and Stop the SEQ file recording
  • Smart adaptable UI interface for an optimized user experience
  • Toggle preset palettes and measurement profiles
  • Trigger focus on point of interest
  • Informative data overlay to visualize important data during collection
  • HSM mode for FLIR GF-3xx and G3xx Series
  • Software is written in the USA

A quick word on Gas Leak Detectors

There are a number of gas leak detector/detection technologies available in the oil and gas industry for the LDAR operator.

They vary in their abilities to identify methane and other gas leaks, pinpoint the location of the leak, and whether or not they can help quantify the concentration of the gas leaks. And they will all have varying cost implications.

The most common gas leak detectors used by LDAR operators are the portable analyzers used as they walk around inspecting individual devices, which are common sources of gas leaks. They are also the most labor-intensive of the gas leak detector choices.

Handheld Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) gas leak detectors have shown themselves to be fantastic tools for productivity improvements among LDAR operators, and the technology improves the LDAR process significantly.
