 EyeCGas is a Thermal Image video camera sensitive to the Infrared, which is a band in the electromagnetic spectrum.  Gases have their own characteristic absorption lines in the IR spectrum; VOC's and others have these lines in the region of the MWIR. The use of a thermal imager adjusted to the region of interest will allow the gases to be visualized. Thermal imagers are sensitive to the absorption lines spectrum of the gases and designed to have the optical path sensitivity in correspondence with the gases in the spectrum area of interest. If a component is leaking, the emissions will absorb the IR energy, appearing as smoke black or white on the LCD screen.  The leaking gas temperature differs from the background temperature. The radiation getting to the camera is the background radiation from the background and the radiation from the gas area which obscures the background visualizing the existence of the gas.  London 8th October 2012.
