How to make gas emission visible Leonie 7/14/2005
I am currently setting up research in which I try to determine what the location is of gas emission of a certain machine. Since the gas is mainly water vapour with aromas of about 92 degrees Celsius, I wonder whether or not it is possible to make these visible with an IR camera?
Would it help to adapt the environment by cooling and lowering the amount of moisture in the room?
Maybe there are special setting that can be used?

Thanks in advance!

With a InSb camera you should be able to see the gas plumes directly without any problems. Make sure that you are imaging against a cold backgroud if possible. For instance, you should be able to see your breath with a good camera.
