Pipeline monitoring and safety has been enhanced with the launch of Process Vision’s latest LineVu process camera, for accurate liquid carryover monitoring in gas pipelines
The new LineVu real-time high-resolution high frame rate colour process camera comes equipped with 24/7 automatic alarms for contamination detection, along with thermal performance ranging from 30°C (86°F) to 55°C (131°F). The superior visual clarity and features facilitate accurate identification of any form of contamination within gas pipelines. The camera body can be attached easily to the pipeline using a flanged (3” #900 RTJ) connection, with the option for threaded (1” NPT) or alternative flange connections via adaptors.
Harry Thorpe, engineering manager at Process Vision, explained, "Our latest LineVu boasts significant upgrades for superior performance. With enhanced illumination and a higher-performance colour camera, image quality is dramatically improved. The increased maximum frame rate, now at 150 frames per second, offers deeper insights into liquid flows in gas pipelines. Plus, enhanced thermal management widens the operating temperature range. And for easier installation, we've switched to a POE+ camera, requiring just one cable for power and signal, whether for temporary or permanent applications.
"With the introduction of the new LineVu camera, Process Vision continues to lead the way in innovative monitoring technology for the energy sector.”
The new product illustrates the company’s commitment to safety and improving efficiency for gas processing, transmission and power station engineers, he added.
