Greenhouse gas detection camera has dual use
In common with its forerunner, FLIR's new GF306 thermal imaging camera for the detection of the gas sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) is unique. This family of products are the only portable infrared cameras able to detect this greenhouse gas that is 24,000 times more dangerous to the environment than CO2.
The FLIR GF306 can also visualise 20 other gases in long wave including ethylene, propylene, acetic acid, ammonia and other VOCs that cannot be seen with the naked eye. And it does so in real time, without any need for post processing.
What makes this latest generation model even more powerful however is that it is dual-use. It is fully radiometric so in addition to gas detection it can also be used for electrical and mechanical maintenance applications too. This adds considerable value to the camera and allows it to provide an even faster return on investment.
It is ideal for monitoring plant that is difficult to reach with contact measurements tools and literally thousands of potential leak sites can be scanned per shift without the need to interrupt the process. Above all, it is exceptionally safe allowing potentially dangerous leaks to be monitored from several metres away.
