The largest commercial infrared company in the world, FLIR has been designing, building, and integrating high-performance infrared cameras for nearly 50 years. FLIR cameras play pivotal roles in a wide range of industrial, commercial, and government activities in over 60 countries.
FLIR provides gas and petrochemical companies with a wide array of cameras to visualize fugitive gas emissions, find critical faults, and verify completed repairs. Whether you need a handheld optical gas imaging camera for surveying your entire operation, a fixed camera for continuous monitoring, or a camera certified for use in Class 1/Division II hazardous areas like the GFx320, FLIR has the tools you need to get the job done.
FLIR’s other divisions produce thermal camera systems for a wide variety of military, paramilitary, law enforcement, and public safety missions, as well as for automotive and maritime night vision, personal night vision, firefighting, and industrial and home security uses. In addition, FLIR supplies camera cores and other sub-components to OEMs and system integrators.
The FLIR GF300/GF320 cameras are designed for the detection of methane and Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) fugitive emissions that come from the production, transportation, and use of oil and natural gas. These cameras operate by scanning large-scale areas and visualize potential gas leaks in real-time. They are ideal for monitoring plants that are difficult to reach with contact measurement tools.
The FLIR QL320™ is a quantitative optical gas imaging (qOGI) system that works solely with FLIR GF620, GFx320, and GF320 OGI cameras. With this technology, surveyors can measure mass leak rates or volumetric leak rates for most hydrocarbons. With usage capabilities at a variety of distances, operators can monitor hard to reach areas and storage tanks from a safe location.
The GF343 is an infrared optical gas imaging camera designed to quickly and easily detect CO2 leaks from a safe distance. This non-contact CO2 detection technology helps prevent unplanned outages by permitting the inspection of equipment while it is still online in the course of normal operations.
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 FLIR A6604 optical gas infrared imaging camera is designed for continuously scanning installations in remote areas or zones that are difficult to access. These cameras are widely used in industrial settings, such as oil refineries, natural gas processing plants, offshore platforms, chemical/petrochemical complexes, and biogas, and power generation plants. They are also able to detect harmful greenhouse gases that can seriously harm the environment.
