The FLIR GF306 optical gas imaging camera visualizes sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) and other gas emissions without the need to shut down operations. SF6 is used in the electric power industry as an insulator and quenching medium for gas-insulated substations and circuit breakers. The portable, non-contact GF306 allows you to quickly scan substations for leaks while maintaining a safe distance from high-voltage equipment. By catching leaks early, the GF306 reduces lost revenue to breakdowns and repairs.

Stop Leaks. Maximize Uptime.

  • Improve Efficiency

    GF306 inspections are faster than traditional leak-detection tools, and capable of detecting SF6, anhydrous ammonia (NH3), and ethylene (C2H4).

  • Integrate with Predictive Maintenance

    The GF306 accurately measures temperatures up to 500°C, making it a sound addition to your facility’s predictive maintenance program.

  • Save Gas, and Revenue

    Reduce revenue loss by detecting gas leaks efficiently, at a safe distance away from high-voltage areas.

The Sensitivity to Visualize Even Small Leaks

The Sensitivity to Visualize Even Small Leaks

With its superior resolution, thermal sensitivity, and the option of a High Sensitivity Modethe FLIR GF306 allows you to visualize leaks so you can pinpoint the exact source of the emissions and begin repairs immediately. In addition, the GF306 can accurately measure temperatures, allowing you to note temperature differentials and improve visual contrast for better gas plume detection.
