Thermal Imaging for SF 6 Gas Detection
FLIR's GasfindIR LW infrared camera can sense Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6), the “Greenhouse Gas” with a global warming potential of 23,900 times the potential of CO2.
138KV Gas Filled Circuit Breaker, leaking SF6.
Finding the Violent Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6)
Sulfur hexafluoride, SF6 is an insulation gas used in high voltage equipment. Based on a unique, technology, FLIR’s GasFindIR-LW is a one-of-a-kind infrared camera designed to help utility companies to better control Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) emissions. Preserve the environment now and for future generations!
New features for utilities address the need to boost productivity across a range of climates and environments. For more than 50 years, thousands of utilities worldwide have used infrared thermography to avoid lost revenues, improve service reliability, and prevent hazards to workers and the public. Today, FLIR offers the world's most advanced infrared camera lines to support the utility industry.
FLIR GasfindIR LW - lab tested to detect a wide range of gases
Anhydrous Ammonia, Chlorine Dioxide, Ethyl Cyanoacrylate, “Superglue”, Acetic Acid, “Vinegar”, FREON-12, Ethylene, Methyl ethyl ketone, etc. Gases that are detected appear on screen as smoke.
