FLIR Optical Gas Imaging Camera Helps Improve Environment and Safety at Borealis Stenungsund

FLIR Optical Gas Imaging Camera Helps Improve Environment and Safety at Borealis Stenungsund

Many petrochemical plants handle invisible gaseous hydrocarbons. These gases may be toxic, or can cause health issues in case of long term exposure. Others are highly flammable, explosive even, and most of them will have a negative impact on the environment if they enter the atmosphere in large quantities. That is why leak detection is of vital importance in these petrochemical plants. Read customer success story
