FLIR GF320 Thermal Camera for Offshore Oil & Gas Leak Detection

The FLIR GF320 thermal camera from FLIR Systems is a preventative maintenance tool purpose designed to spot leaks in piping, flanges and connections in offshore petrochemical operations. The thermal camera can rapidly scan large areas and pinpoint leaks in real time.

Offshore oil and gas facilities require state of the art technology to achieve results that are safe for the environment and safe for business. FLIR GF-Series optical gas imaging cameras have been developed together with oil industries and the American Petroleum Institute (API) to meet their requirements for detecting and minimizing gas leaks.

The use of optical gas imaging cameras has already become a standard practice in many oil and gas companies. Using the FLIR GF320 provides a proactive way to identify sources of Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions and repair leaking components before it's too late. By using the most advanced VOC detection, Offshore oil and gas facilities will improve safety and productivity and minimize emissions.

Using a FLIR GF320 optical gas imaging camera literally thousands of components can be scanned for gas leaks per shift without the need to interrupt the process. It reduces repair downtime and provides verification of the process. Above all it is exceptionally safe, allowing potentially dangerous leaks to be monitored from several meters away.

The FLIR GF320 will significantly improve your work safety, environmental and regulatory compliance, not to mention helping to improve the bottom line by finding leaks that essentially decrease profits. The latest version of the GF320 now embeds GPS data into the image allowing workers to pinpoint the location of the leak or hot spot.
