DescriptionDetect leaks save money
The GasCam is a mobile infrared detection measuring system.
It works with high-quality and high-detection components. Gas leaks are detected in real time,
even from distances of up to 200 m, and a coloured, moving image of the leaking methane cloud
is displayed. As a highly specialised system for the detection of methane, it is perfectly suitable
for above-ground leakage testing of biogas and natural gas plants. This not only enables the localisation
of leaks, but also the immediate estimation of their magnitude.
By using the GasCam, you not only save money, but also protect the environment in a sustainable way. Unintentional gas leaks from a biogas plant have a very negative impact on the emissions balance, as methane is 25 times more climate-relevant than carbon dioxide.
Measures can thus be carried out immediately and precisely. The large-area inspection also reliably displays short-term and only sporadically occurring gas leaks. Even leaks that are not in the direct field of vision can be detected if their gas clouds drift through the image. Only this visual representation of gas enables correct assessment.
Our explosion-proof measuring devices are used to determine the exact concentration of the gas leaks previously localised with the GasCam. Our specialised employees take all measurements for you and give you security and certainty. You will receive detailed documentation that includes videos of the existing gas emissions, as well as reference measurements of the concentrations that occurred.

For who does it pay off:
- Biogas plant operators
By checking the biogas plant with the GasCam, methane leaks can be localised promptly and thus leaks can be sealed as quickly as possible and yield loss prevented.
- Biogas plant manufacturers
The manufacturers of biogas plants can check the tightness before handing over the plant and thus set a high standard in quality assurance.
Authorities can use our GasCam Service to carry out a qualified inspection in accordance with the Federal Immission Control Act (BImSchG) as part of the approval procedure.
When does it pay off:
- When accepting a new or repaired system
- Before expiry of the warranty period
- If gas leakage is suspected due to odour emissions
- In case of differences between substrate input and gas yield
