FLIR thermal imaging camera pinpoints CO emissions in real time

FLIR GF346 thermal imaging camera

The GF346 thermal imaging camera remotely scans large areas rapidly and pinpoints toxic gas leaks in real time, including carbon monoxide (CO) emissions. It operates over a temperature range from -20° to 300°C, and traces leaks to their source by visualizing them as an image. Additional applications include general predictive maintenance, high- and low voltage electrical installations, and mechanical systems.

PRESS RELEASE

Safe Real-time Detection of Carbon Monoxide

FLIR Advanced Thermal Solutions (ATS) has announced the new FLIR GF346 Thermal Imaging Camera.  Able to remotely scan large areas rapidly, and pinpoint gas leaks in real time, the FLIR GF346 is ideal for safely monitoring plants where it is difficult to reach components with contact measurement tools such as gas sniffers.

Carbon monoxide (CO) emissions can pose a significant threat to primary steel manufacturing operations and other industries where CO emissions need to be closely watched. Even the slightest leak in a vent stack or pipe can have a devastating effect. The FLIR GF346 enables fast detection of CO emissions thereby helping to ensure safety, protect the environment and save money by finding leaks that decrease profit.

The new FLIR GF346 is a revolutionary thermal imaging camera capable of finding carbon monoxide and other toxic gases / vapours including acetonitrile, acetyl cyanide, arsine, bromine isocyanate, chlorine isocyanate, chlorodimethylsilane, cyanogen bromide, dichloromethylsilane, ethenone, ethyl thiocyanate, germane, hexyl isocyanide, ketene, methyl thiocyanate, nitrous oxide and silane.  Operating over a temperature range from -20?C to +300?C - in high sensitivity mode the GF346 is able to detect even the smallest amounts of leaking gas. The lightweight and robust FLIR GF346 camera offers an easy-to-use method of tracing leaks to their source by visualizing them as an image. Literally thousands of components can be scanned per shift without the need to interrupt the process. Using the FLIR GF346 will reduce repair downtime and provide safe verification of your manufacturing processes.

In addition to gas leak detection the FLIR GF346 can also be used for general predictive maintenance. High- and low voltage electrical installations, mechanical systems, pipework and insulation can all seamlessly be inspected with the FLIR GF346. For further information on the new FLIR GF346 please contact FLIR ATS on telephone +33 1 6037 0100 or email gasimaging@flir.com  

Pioneers in all aspects of thermal imaging 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.
