Infrared Camera For SF6 Detection And Electrical Inspections: FLIR GF306

Source: FLIR Systems, Inc – Oil and Gas Solutions

FLIR offers the GF306 optical gas imaging camera designed to visualize and pinpoint SF6 and other gas emissions without the need to shut down operations. With the ability to quickly scan wide areas for leaks at safe distances, these cameras enable quicker repairs, and reduce revenue costs and safety concerns involved with gas-insulated substation and circuit breakers.

The GF306 is capable of detecting not only SF6, but several other gases including Anhydrous Ammonia (NH3), and Ethylene (C2H4). This camera accurately measures temperatures up to 500°C and can be integrated into a facility’s predictive maintenance program for benefits beyond leak detection. This optical gas imaging camera is an accepted leak detection technique for the US Environmental Protection Agency in the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule.
