03 Jun World’s first ATEX acoustic camera
Ultrasound cameras do not require contact with the gas when trying to detect leaks, which is a big advantage. Though, operators may have to enter areas classified as hazardous, because gases potentially leaking may be flammable or explosive. Tools worn or carried by operators must never become an ignition source and manufacturers have to bring the proof of it. That is what the ATEX norm is about. At the end of 2020, Distran certified its camera complies with ATEX, making it the world’s first ATEX acoustic camera.
