A global pharmaceutical company discovered that an acoustic camera is a reliable, fast, and easy-to-use predictive maintenance method for detecting hidden air leaks in the plant area. Air leaks are a common problem in industrial environments. According to studies on compressed air system leaks, the average leakage rate is around 25%, but some facilities are losing up to 80% of their compressed air through leaks. If not detected and addressed on time, these leaks may end up causing additional costs, unplanned stoppages, and even potential safety hazards. Locations especially prone to air leaks in plants and manufacturing facilities include equipment...

The world of hazardous manufacturing and production can be complicated enough without adding extra elements to your workload. Hot work permits are often seen as being an essential part of working in hazardous environments - but what if you could inspect without this having to provide copious amounts of paperwork?? A multinational chemical manufacturing company has recently begun to do just that; freeing up time and labor to redeploy throughout its workforce. Typically, inspecting in Zone 2 hazardous environments requires getting a hot work permit signed off by a manager. This can consist of extensive manual paperwork and requires that...

Cooled or Uncooled? Thermal imaging cameras equipped with a cooled detector offer distinct advantages in comparison to their counterparts with an uncooled detector, albeit at a higher cost. In the realm of contemporary thermal imaging technology, a cooled thermal imaging camera incorporates an imaging sensor intricately linked to a cryocooler. This cryocooler effectively reduces the sensor's temperature to cryogenic levels, a crucial step to mitigate thermally-induced noise below the signal originating from the observed scene. Cryocoolers, though highly precise mechanical systems, exhibit wear and helium gas leakage over time. Typically, they necessitate rebuilding after 10,000-13,000 hours of operation. The question...
