Optical gas imaging of methane and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
The FLIR GF320 is an IR camera for optical gas imaging (OGI) that visualizes and pinpoints leaks of VOCs, without the need to shut down the operation. The portable camera also greatly improves operator safety, by detecting emissions at a safe distance, and helps to protect the environment by tracing leaks of environmentally harmful gases.
The GF320 is used in industrial settings such as oil refineries, natural gas processing plants, offshore platforms, chemical/petrochemical industries, and biogas and power generation plants.
The FLIR GF320 contains a cooled Indium Antimonide (InSb) detector. This highly sensitive detector visualizes gases in the 3.2 - 3.4 micrometer waveband. It will not only make gases, but also the smallest of temperature differences, clearly visible.
The FLIR GF320 visualizes temperatures from -40°C to +350°C.
The FLIR GF320 can be used both for finding gas leaks and maintenance inspections.
The FLIR GF320 comes either with a fixed 14.5° lens or with a fixed 24° lens. A version with interchangeable lenses is also available but requires a US Department of State license.
The FLIR GF320 detects the following gases:
