La détection de fuites à l'aide de caméras thermiques

Les caméras thermiques, moyennant une conception spécifique, peuvent être utilisées pour détecter les fuites de frigorigènes. (en anglais)
Thermal imaging cameras can be specially designed for the detection of refrigerant gases.

In order to achieve this, FLIR GF 304 thermal imaging cameras contain a cooled quantum well infrared photodetector and a cold band filter which allows them to visualize gases in the 8-8.6 µm waveband and temperatures ranging from -20°C to 500°C.
After the cameras capture images of a suspected leak, a report including a visual representation is sent out.

The technology reportedly facilitates efficient and reliable leak detection where traditional detection systems proved to be difficult.
