The FLIR GF306 is an IR camera for optical gas imaging (OGI) that visualises and pinpoints gas leaks of SF6 and ammonia without the need to de-energise HV equipment or shut down the operation.

The FLIR GF306 non-contact, portable camera also greatly improves operator safety - quickly scan substations for leaks while maintaining a safe distance from high-voltage equipment. By catching leaks early, the GF306 reduces lost revenue to breakdowns and repairs.

SF6 is used in the electric power industry as an insulator and quenching medium for gasinsulated substations and circuit breakers. The gas is also used in magnesium production and semiconductor manufacture. Ammonia is produced in ammonia plants, and is used mainly for the production of fertiliser.

The GF306 accurately measures temperatures up to 500°C, making it a sound addition to your facility’s predictive maintenance program.

Key Features:

Improved efficiency: The FLIR GF306 reduces revenue loss by pinpointing even small gas leaks quickly and efficiently, and from a distance. It also reduces the inspection time by allowing a broad area to be scanned rapidly and without the need to de-energize components in the high-voltage area. The wireless connectivity of the camera allows you to connect to smart phones or tablet PCs for the wireless transfer of images or remote control of the camera. The FLIR GF306 can also be used for temperature measurement, which makes it even more useful for predictive maintenance of high-voltage equipment.

Increased worker safety: OGI allows gas leaks to be detected in a non-contact mode and from a safe distance. This prevents electrical exposure to personnel working in a high-voltage area. With a FLIR GF306 gas imaging camera it is easy to scan areas of interest that are difficult to reach with conventional methods. The camera is ergonomically designed, with a bright LCD and tiltable viewfinder, which facilitates its use over a full working day.

Protecting the environment: SF6 is a well-known greenhouse gas that can cause harm to the environment, and is usually governed by regulations. SF6 has a global warming potential 24,000 times higher than CO2. Even small leaks can be detected and documented using the FLIR GF306 camera.
