FLIR Systems Inc. has launched its second-generation line of GF-Series infrared cameras, previously known as GasFindIR, with two IR cams designed detect industrial gas leaks.

The new GF320 detects all types of greenhouse gas emissions, and the new GF309 "sees clearly through flames," making it ideal for high temperature, industrial furnace inspections, the company said.

The GF320 is specifically engineered to image volatile organic compounds (VOCs) including methane, sulfur hexafluoride, carbon monoxide and many other gases. The GF320's high-resolution thermal and visible output allows operators to rapidly scan large, hard-to-reach, or dangerous areas from a safe distance.

It has an improved "High Sensitivity Mode" (HSM) and noise reduction filter to detect and trace even small quantities of gas leaks to their source.

The GF309 is engineered for high temperature furnace applications. The GF309's "flame filter" helps workers detect a wide range of common and recurring problems with industrial furnaces, including the presence of coking, scaling or ash build-up.

Both cameras feature the ability to capture high-resolution thermal and visible images and thermal video for in-the-field playback, later analysis and documentation. Embedded GPS provides the exact coordinates to track facility non-compliance with environmental regulations or to mimic the set-up of portable monitors stationed around the plant. Additional features include embedded temperature measurement data, a flip-out full-color LCD and a high-resolution tiltable viewfinder.
