Contributing to Safety and Security as well as Environment-friendly Operation by Visualizing Gas Leaks
In recent years, growing risk of incidents and/or fires that originate as a gas leak events due to deterioration of plants in Japan has become a social issue needing to be addressed. At the same time, given the advance of an aging society coupled with a low birthrate, the number of skilled maintenance operators is also declining. This has created a need for continuous monitoring that does not rely on labor skills but can secure the operation safety during gas leak repairs. Konica Minolta provides a solution that enables early discovery and handling of abnormalities through continuous plant monitoring. Using Konica Minolta’s optical technology and image processing technology to visualize the sourcing point and concentration level of gas leaks enables maintenance operators to conduct appropriate maintenance operation of the plant regardless their maintenance skill levels.
Meanwhile, in the United States, public concern for methane leaks from shale wells and oil refineries is growing due to the fact that the global warming potential of methane is 25 times greater than that of carbon dioxide. Interest in Konica Minolta's gas monitoring solutions that can also detect methane leaks is growing too. We will continue to meet the needs for gas visualization with our technology and contribute to the fight against global warming.
