Paper Abstract

There was an unusual method of gas equipment remote control realized during field proved at 1994 at the outskirts of St. Petersburg's. The gas equipment worn and infringings of the technology made the gas station in the field at high risk of fire or air toxins. Escaping gas can be detected only with an apparatus which either controls the element or exercises control over the general arrangement. Therefore, it is appropriate to equip an operator with a device, which he would use at any instant and at any lcoation. The hand-held thermovision camera makes possible more detailed remote observation of the hard-to-reach spots independently of natural illumination. It shows the smallest temperature differences in elements of equipment to the operator and enables him to detect internal flows.
