Monitoring Manufacturing Operations with Infrared Cameras

FLIR Systems GF-Series infrared cameras are being used by chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and many other manufacturing industries worldwide to ensure that existing air quality or internal systems for removing chemicals are functioning properly.

Regulations exist in most industrialized countries that specify thousands of inspection points around a manufacturing operation and how often they must be monitored. A comprehensive system for testing and repairing those leaks can yield competitive advantage by reducing maintenance and inspection costs while increasing worker safety, improving environmental quality inside the facility and outside as well.

Using proprietary FLIR optical gas imaging (OGI) technology - users can detect dozens of volatile organic compounds that might otherwise go unnoticed. FLIR GF series cameras are beneficially able to remotely scan large areas to detect in real-time particular gas emissions which are displayed on-screen as a plume of vapor or smoke.

The FLIR GF series includes a range of application optimized cameras. The FLIR GF306 OGI camera detects and visualizes Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) and 25 other harmful gases quickly from a safe distance and without the need to interrupt your plant's production process. The FLIR GF320 is a preventative maintenance OGI camera used worldwide to spot leaks in piping, flanges and connections in chemical and petrochemical operations. The FLIR GF309 is the OGI camera of choice for monitoring all types of furnaces, heaters and boilers in manufacturing operations in a wide range of industries.
