CAGEM (Continuous Autonomous Gas Emission Monitoring) is a continuous and autonomous optical monitoring method that identifies and locates diffuse gas leaks and gas emissions. It uses optical remote sensing technology to measure gas over distances of 1 km, locate and quantify the gas, and map the gas concentration in 3D in real-time. The system provides early warning in real-time and customizable automatic reporting on diffuse emissions and mapping of leak locations.

CAGEM operates according to VDI4211 and can be operated according to EPA0000a, and can identify the chemical composition of gas mixtures. The system provides several functions to provide information about the chemical composition of the gas, the total amount of a gas cloud, the total emission since detection, and the duration of the event. scanfeld® can scan for several compounds or mixtures of substances at the same time without changing any settings. The system detects all infrared active compounds and identifies the chemical composition.

scanfeld® reduces the time without information about unknown diffuse emission sources to hours, compared to the interval between LDAR inspection procedures (usually 3-12 months).

CAGEM is particularly suitable in facilities with a significant number of potential leak points that are not easily accessible.

In addition to its environmental benefits, CAGEM also offers economic advantages. By detecting and locating gas leaks early on, the system helps to prevent costly equipment failures and production losses. It also allows for more efficient maintenance planning and reduces the need for manual inspections, saving time and resources.

CAGEM’s continuous and autonomous monitoring capabilities ensure that potential leaks are always being monitored, minimizing the risk of unnoticed emissions. Overall, CAGEM provides a reliable and cost-effective solution for gas leak detection and monitoring in various industrial settings.
