SF6 Greenhouse gas detection camera

15 October 2009

FLIR’s has launched a GF306 thermal imaging camera for the detection of sulphur hexafluoride (SF6). The camera can also visualise, in real time, 20 other gases including ethylene, propylene, acetic acid, ammonia and other VOCs that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

A cooled detector for greater sensitivity and is able to scan large areas rapidly, pinpoint leaks in real time and provide verification of the process.

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. It is exceptionally safe allowing potentially dangerous leaks to be monitored from several metres away.

To enhance its flexibility the FLIR GF306 also has a built-in digital camera and GPS, features already proven by FLIR’s P-Series plant maintenance cameras. Exchangeable lenses also allow the camera to capture a complete scene or the smallest gas escape in detail.

In non-radiometric mode the camera provides video footage whereby escaping gases appear as visible smoke. This image is projected onto the camera’s tiltable viewfinder or large LCD allowing the user to see the fugitive gas emissions clearly. This material can be recorded for easy archiving, documenting and e-mailing.
