FLIR has released its second generation line of GF-Series infrared cameras, previously known as GasFindIR.
The line includes two innovative IR cameras designed to reduce product and revenue loss associated with industrial gas leaks, and improve worker safety in areas where leaking gas can cause fire and explosion. The new GF320 IR cameras detect all types of greenhouse gas emissions, and the new GF309 "sees clearly through flames," making it ideal for high temperature, industrial furnace inspections.
The GF320 infrared camera is specifically engineered to image volatile organic compounds (VOCs) including methane, sulfur hexafluoride, carbon monoxide and many other gases. The GF320's high resolution thermal and visible output allows operators to rapidly scan large, hard-to-reach, or dangerous areas from a safe distance. Its new and improved "High Sensitivity Mode" (HSM) and noise reduction filter provide a powerful new tool for workers to detect and trace even small quantities of gas leaks to their source, a difficult task using the current "sniffer" technology.
The GF309 is engineered for high temperature furnace applications. The GF309's "flame filter" helps workers detect a wide range of common and recurring problems with industrial furnaces, including the presence of coking, scaling or ash build-up.
Both cameras feature the ability to capture high resolution thermal and visible images and thermal video for in-the-field playback, later analysis and documentation. Embedded GPS provides the exact coordinates to track facility non-compliance with environmental regulations, or to mimic the set-
