Propylene is an olefin produced through oil and natural gas refinement. Like Ethylene, it is an important starting product in petrochemical production. Propylene is mostly commonly used as a raw material used in making plastic products such as films, packaging, and closures, but it is also used in the production of other industrial chemicals. Propylene vapor is highly flammable and can cause explosions.
Gain a greater understanding of optical gas imaging (OGI) technology and how it can help you find and repair gas leaks quickly, saving time, money, and the environment. This new iBook offers:
Many petrochemical plants handle invisible gaseous hydrocarbons. Most of these gases pose some sort of safety aspects. They 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.
Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras use spectral wavelength filtering and Sterling cooler cold filtering technology to visualize the infrared absorption of VOC/hydrocarbon, SF6, refrigerants, carbon monoxide and other gases whose spectral absorption matches the response of the camera.
