This week FLIR launched its first uncooled methane gas detection camera, the FLIR GF77 Gas Find IR. This affordable, handheld camera allows inspection professionals to actually see invisible methane leaks and other industrial gases at natural gas power plants, renewable energy production facilities, industrial plants, and other locations along a natural gas supply chain. Based on the award-winning design of the FLIR T-Series camera platform, the FLIR GF77 makes it easy for inspection professionals to get the job done right.
Here’s why your company needs the FLIR GF77:
More Safety for More Personnel
The uncooled GF77 provides methane gas detection capability at roughly half the price of cooled gas inspection thermal cameras. This means a wider range of companies across the oil and gas industry will be able to reduce emissions and ensure a safer work environment for more personnel. With the affordable price point lowering the barrier to entry, more professionals can access the technology to help keep them safe, saving your company time and money.
The GF77 is spectrally filtered to visualize methane gas. Spectral targeting improves visualization, while also reducing false negatives from gases that absorb in other wavelengths. This innovative optical gas imaging camera also offers many unique and proven features, such as 1-Touch Level/Span. With a quick tap on the screen, 1-Touch Level/Span automatically improves contrast between the gas compound and the background scene, further minimizing false detection and strengthening confidence. And for very low-contrast situations, the GF77 offers FLIR-patented High Sensitivity Mode (HSM) to accentuate plume movement.
When it comes to getting the job done right and building confidence in both your employees and clients, proof is key. With the FLIR GF77, you can organize your findings in the field using the camera’s built-in voice annotation, GPS tagging, customizable work folders, and Wi-Fi connections for video streaming or sharing.
Efficient leak detection and repair with the GF77 will help protect the environment and your company’s reputation, while avoiding product losses and ensuring a safer work environment.
