FLIR GF300 w/14.5° Lens, 320 x 240 Resolution, also available 24° Lens

The FLIR GF300 is an infrared camera for optical gas imaging (OGI) that visualizes and pinpoints leaks of methane and other volatile organic compounds (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 FLIR GF300 is used in industrial settings such as oil refineries, natural gas processing plants, offshore platforms, chemical/petrochemical industries, and biogas and power generation plants.

Detects the following gases: benzene, ethanol, ethylbenzene, heptane, hexane, isoprene, methanol, MEK, MIBK, octane, pentane, 1-pentene, toluene, xylene, butane, ethane, methane, propane, ethylene, propylene

Key Features:

  • Improved efficiency: The FLIR GF300 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 interrupt the industrial process.
  • Increased worker safety: OGI allows gas leaks to be detected in a non-contact mode and from a safe distance. This reduces the risk of the user being exposed to invisible and potentially harmful or explosive chemicals. With a FLIR GF300 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: Several VOCs are dangerous to human health or cause harm to the environment, and are usually governed by regulations. Even small leaks can be detected and documented using the FLIR GF300 camera.
