FLIR Releases IR-Based Camera for Optical Gas Imaging of Volatile Organic Compounds

The FLIR GF320 is an IR-based camera that can be used effectively for optical gas imaging. It detects as well as visualizes leaks of VOCs, while maintaining consistent operation.

FLIR GF320

Designed to be handy and portable, this camera ensures enhanced operator safety as it is capable of identifying emissions at a safe distance. Through precise and early detection of environmentally harmful gas leaks, this camera provides improved protection to the environment.

The FLIR GF320 includes a cooled Indium Antimonide (InSb) detector. Capable of operating in the 3.2 - 3.4 µm waveband, this highly sensitive detector clearly shows even the smallest of temperature differences in a plant or process, in addition to visualizing the VOCs.

The FLIR GF320 is capable of visualizing temperatures from -40°C to +350°C. This ideal non-invasive inspection tool effectively evaluates and monitors industrial settings including biogas and power generation plants, and chemical/petrochemical industries, oil refineries, natural gas processing plants, and offshore platforms.

The FLIR GF320 is available in either a fixed 14.5° lens or with a fixed 24° lens. Despite its ready availability, a version with interchangeable lenses can be used after obtaining US Department of State license.

FLIR is an IR-based firm that designs, produces and supports thermal imaging systems and subsystems for scientific, industrial, commercial, governmental, and fire fighting applications. FLIR is considered as a pioneer in thermal imaging technology with 40-year long history of infrared innovation, development centers and sales offices expanded over 60 countries. More than 100,000 systems have been deployed worldwide.
