Reliable Gas Leak Detection by FLIR Systems GF-Series Optical Gas Imaging Cameras

The FLIR Systems range of GF-Series Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras are proven to provide reliable, top performance leak detection across a growing range of applications.

GF-Series optical gas imaging cameras display a gas leak as a plume of vapor in the captured infrared image. Once a leak is found you can use your TVA to quantify the concentration.

Optical imaging of gas leaks using FLIR GF-Series OGI cameras is inherently safe as the technique enables you to scan for leaks remotely from a ‘safe zone’.

The OGI technology used in FLIR GF Series cameras offers tangible benefits compared to traditional "gas sniffers" because they scan a broader area much more rapidly and can detect leaks in areas that are difficult to reach with contact measurement tools.

The OGI technology used in FLIR GF Series cameras.

Typically gas leaks occur in less than 1% of the components in a plant or refinery, consequently using a GF-Series OGI camera provides enormous savings in terms of time and personnel as well as minimising loss of production.  In addition to these advantages – OGI technology is now under final consideration as a tool for enabling industry to comply with new industrial emissions regulations & procedures as set by the new IED (Industrial Emissions Directive) within the EU.

Optimised FLIR GF-Series cameras are available for identifying sources of VOC emissions/leaking components from refineries, chemical plants and offshore oil/gas extraction platforms, fluorinated hydrocarbon leaks from refrigeration plants, Sulfur Hexafluoride emissions from electrical utlity plants and providing non-invasive monitoring of leaks from biogas storage tanks.

Pioneers in all aspects of infrared technology, FLIR designs, manufactures, and supports thermal imaging systems and subsystems for industrial, scientific, governmental, commercial, and fire fighting applications. With a 40-year history of infrared innovation, over 100,000 systems in use worldwide, and development centres and sales offices in over 60 countries, FLIR is the world leader in thermal imaging technology.
