Acoustic imaging cameras precisely detect compressed air leaks in open-cast and underground mines

Mar 04 2024

Mining is one of the toughest and most hazardous industries in the world, as such mines require robust and reliable equipment to ensure the safe and efficient extraction of metals and minerals. Air compressors play a crucial role in every stage of both underground and open-cast mining operations from powering drilling equipment to providing safe air ventilation and operating a plethora of tools.

FLIR’s sophisticated acoustic imaging cameras are now ubiquitous in the mining industry for detecting compressed air leaks. The cameras swiftly and precisely pinpoint the origin of a leak, with minimal operator training required, even in mines with their high levels of noise and complexity. Thanks to FLIR’s cutting-edge technology prompt action can be taken to reduce energy wastage and danger to personnel while optimising equipment performance.
