Optical Gas Imaging Certification Training

 

Skilled users of the new FLIR GF-Series cameras and the legacy GasFindIR camera can inspect over 3,000 connections per day. Current sniffer technology is limited to about 500 connections per day.

Students will learn how to set up and operate FLIR optical gas imaging cameras. They will learn how to optimally adjust their cameras for varying environmental conditions to find gas leaks. Students will learn under what environmental conditions gas leaks are most easily found, somewhat easy to find, and difficult to find.

This class will teach students which gases can be found with FLIR optical gas imaging cameras and leak size limitations. Some basic infrared theory and heat transfer concepts will be introduced to build a strong foundation.

Lab and/or field practice in finding leaks is a key part of this class. Students will learn by doing and by observing numerous videos of leaks and what to look for including thermal contrast, gas plume motion, distance limitations, etc. Basic inspection procedures will be covered including equipment checkout, route planning, permitting requirements, safety practices/equipment, and reporting concepts.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive a training certification for optical gas imaging camera usage.

Course Objectives
  • Explain the regulatory framework for optical gas imaging
  • Describe the OGI certification process
  • Demonstrate proper operation of a FLIR GasFindIR HSX or FLIR GF-Series infrared camera
  • Explain the basics of thermal science
  • Explain how optical gas imaging is a combination of art, science, technique and interpretive skills
  • List the basic safety practices for doing an OGI inspection
Required Course Materials:
  • IR Camera- Students will be required to complete various labs & exercises throughout the duration of the course.
  • Laptop- Certification Examinations will be administered electronically. Tablets are also acceptable.
