The FLIR GF304 is an IR camera for optical gas imaging (OGI) that visualises and pinpoints leaks of refrigerant gases, without the need to interrupt or shut down operation.
The FLIR GF304 non-contact, portable camera greatly improves operator safety, by detecting gases at a safe distance, and helps to protect the environment by tracing leaks of environmentally harmful gases.
Designed for use in following industries:
- Food production, storage, and retail
- Automotive production and repair
- Air conditioning
- Pharmaceutical production, transport, and storage
Improved efficiency: The FLIR GF304 reduces revenue loss by pinpointing even small gas leaks quickly and efficiently, and from a distance. It also reduces the inspection time by being able to scan a broad area rapidly without the need to interrupt the industrial process. The wireless connectivity of the camera allows you to connect to smart phones or tablet PCs for the wireless transfer of images or the remote control of the camera. The FLIR GF304 can also be used for temperature measurement, which makes it even more useful for predictive maintenance.
Increased worker safety: The leak detection of gases can be performed in noncontact mode, and from a safe distance. This reduces the risk of the inspector being exposed to invisible and potentially harmful or explosive chemicals. With a FLIR GF304 gasimaging 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 a tiltable viewfinder, which facilitates its use over a full working day.
Protecting the environment: Several refrigerant gases have a high global warming potential and are usually governed by regulations. Even small leaks can be detected and documented using the FLIR GF304 camera.
Most modern refrigerants are organofluorine compounds, and while they are not ozone-depleting, some blends contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
GF304 detects the following refrigerant gases:
