Sabic UK adopts Cordex camera.
Asset surveys, maintenance programmes and fire safety measures are key priorities at industrial sites and high quality digital photography enables engineering teams to work more effectively, ensuring that equipment and systems are running efficiently and safely. Assistant technical engineer Wayne Douthwaite said: "For a site engineering team, a high quality hazardous area camera is an essential tool and the ToughPix meets our needs perfectly. It does everything we need it to do, in areas where normal digital cameras are not allowed, and its robust construction gives it a much longer life-span than other cameras we have used in the past."
Encased in aluminium with an ultra-bright display protected by armoured glass, the camera is custom designed for use in the harshest environments and can capture still and moving images in AVI format of up to 10 mega pixels. The next-generation device is also Atex and American CSA certified to take images within Zone 1 IIC T4 and Class 1 Division I B, C, D hazardous areas. The ToughPix 2303XP camera has been used by the team on a number of projects including: monitoring process-critical valves, a tank decommissioning project and tank rim seal fire detection work. Douthwaite said: "Using our photographs we have also been able to show the maintenance team which pipework and associated instrumentation has to be disconnected and removed as part of a tank decommissioning project."
