MetCam: Methane Optical Gas Imager

Fully Integrated Optical Gas Imaging Camera (OGI)

MetCam is a fully integrated Quantifying Optical Gas Imaging (QOGI) device which increases site safety by continuously monitoring leaks, covering a large volume, locating and alarming on the presence of hazardous clouds.

MetCam also detects small emissions so that effective preventive maintenance operations can be conducted.

MetCam is certified for installation in hazardous locations (Zone 1, Class I Div 1)

MetCam detects Methane leaks in various Natural Gas phases (natural/liquefied/compressed), in facilities such as Compression stations, Natural Gas skids, LNG gasification/liquefaction facilities, LNG and CNG fueling stations.

MetCam output video and alarm signals are displayed and recorded in the control room using standard ONVIF interface.

Industry standard 4-20 mA output is available on-board MetCam, providing smooth integration into existing alarm systems.

MetCam utilizes advanced algorithms for operation in demanding environments and to minimize false alarms.

MetCam is a reliable and maintenance free device, other than periodical external cleaning.

MetCam Advanced Gas Leak Detection

How gas detection sensitivity is influenced by environmental conditions?

To understand Optical Gas Imaging (OGI), we need to first understand the concept of radiometric contrast as it applies to gas detection.

* Please note that the actual Software file + Operational Parameters file (the ".tar.gz" + ".conf" file), need to be extracted from the downloaded zip files. The MetCam will need the .tar.gz and the .conf files, it will not accept the .zip files.

** Please note that the Operational Parameters file (.conf) should be installed only after installation of the software file (.tar.gz).

Extraction instructions (Software + Operational Parameters files):

  • In order to extract the files in Windows, just click twice on the downloaded zip file, and copy the file (".tar.gz" or ".conf") inside to the desired folder in your computer.
  • Another option is to click the downloaded zip file with the right mouse button and choose "extract here" (to the current folder) or "extract all" and pick the desired folder you want it to be extracted to.
