6 Range of Explosion-proof Cameras for Oil and Gas Industry

Safety measures across offshore and onshore installations at any oil and gas facility must be kept as effective as possible on a constant basis. The raw materials being processed at these sites are usually highly flammable and explosive which is why monitoring, inspecting and evaluating is extremely essential to maintain safety in such industries. Hence, an explosion-proof video surveillance system is a perfect fit for the Oil and Gas industry. Let’s dig a little deeper to understand how explosion-proof cameras provide value and what are the different ranges available for the Oil & Gas industry.

 

1. Understanding the Challenges

The oil and gas production chain go from offshore exploration and drilling platforms to onshore oil wells, from pipelines to refineries. Generally, such sites are spread over vast areas in remote inaccessible places on land or in the open sea and are often subjected to hostile environmental conditions. 

Given the high-risk environment, there are numerous challenges faced when it comes to ensuring the protection of personnel and the expensive infrastructure at such sites. For installing any equipment in these types of environments you also need to meet the strict and rigorous standards set by the governing bodies. 

All electrical or mechanical equipment installed in a place that has been classified as potentially explosive must follow stringent design parameters, pass exacting compliance testing, and gain certification as an “explosion-proof product” from accredited certification bodies.

 

2. The Solution: Explosion-proof Cameras

An ex-proof camera is the ideal surveillance solution for the oil and gas industry. As they are designed to resist harsh weather conditions, humidity, water & most importantly, explosive materials. Thus, it becomes easier for the operators to monitor the worksite, intercept risks, malfunctions, accidents, suspicious activities, and thefts in a timely manner.

Explosion-proof cameras can protect your employees from any disaster or accident beforehand, and also provide real-time support. With a constant live feed, a surveillance manager can monitor your employees & workplace, and if you find anything out of the norm, then you can question the particular employee. It’s also easy to install them anywhere on the worksite like on the rig floor, monkey board, driller console, and sub-base rigs.

 

3. The Range: Which Type of Camera

For monitoring such a critical environment, well-thought-out video surveillance is necessary. SharpEagle’s Ex-proof camera systems are designed to meet the needs of Oil and Gas industry.
