Infrared Camera for SF6 Gas Leak Detection - FLIR GF306

Supplier: FLIR Systems Australia

FLIR GF306 is a dual use infrared camera capable of sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) detection and electrical inspections.

Price Guide (Inc GST): POA

FLIR GF306 scans large areas rapidly and pinpoints leaks in real time. It is ideal for monitoring plants that are difficult to reach with contact measurement tools. Literally thousands of components can be scanned per shift without the need to interrupt the process. It reduces repair downtime and provides verification of the process and above all it is exceptionally safe, allowing potentially dangerous leaks to be monitored from several meters away.

FLIR GF306 will significantly improve your work safety, environmental and regulatory compliance, not to mention helping to improve the bottom line by finding leaks that essentially decrease profits.

Detects SF6

FLIR GF306 enables utilities, manufacturers and consultants to proactively diagnose leaks of sulfur hexafluoride SF6 in electrical substations and equipment. SF6 has a significant impact on global climate change with 23,900 times the global warming potential of CO2 and with an atmospheric lifetime of 3,200 years.
