A Versatile Solution for Gas Detection and Thermal Inspection

Dec 02 2020 Read 456 Times

The FLIR GF77 is a groundbreaking uncooled optical gas imaging camera with interchangeable lens options that detect methane, sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), ethylene, ammonia, and other gas emissions. Capable of both gas detection and radiometric temperature measurement for thermal inspections, the GF77 is ideal for electric power utilities, oil and natural gas operations, chemical/manufacturing facilities, the food and agriculture industry, and first responders. This affordable solution offers the benefit of built-in thermographic calibrations and the flexibility to detect a wide range of gases by simply changing lenses. For a limited time, the purchase of a GF77 camera includes a 3-month subscription to FLIR Thermal Studio Pro and FLIR Route Creator.

Building on the release of our methane-detecting GF77 camera, FLIR now offers this uncooled gas detection camera with two lens types—low-range (7 to 8.5 μm) and high-range (9.5 to 12 μm)—for finding multiple types of gas leaks with just one camera. The GF77 does more than visualise gases; this ergonomic, easy to use camera is calibrated for temperature, so inspectors can use it to verify tank levels, search for electrical faults, perform predictive maintenance, and more. The LR lens has a built-in 7–8.5 µm wavelength filter for visualizing methane, nitrous oxide, propane, sulfur dioxide, R-134a, and R-152a. The HR lens filters the 9.5–12 µm wavelength for visualising sulfur hexafluoride, ammonia, and ethylene. Both the LR and HR lenses are compatible with the GF77 camera body.

Prepare inspection route and streamline your surveys with the GF77 and FLIR routing software. FLIR Thermal Studio Pro software together with the Route Creator Plugin can help you prepare for your workday by setting an efficient inspection route. Then, with the FLIR Inspection Routing software added to the camera, you can download and run the route directly from your GF77. FLIR is offering a free 3-month subscription to its state-of-the-art thermal image analyses software plus the FLIR Route Creater Plugin.
