FLIR GF320 Optical Gas Detector for Preventative Maintenance in Oil and Gas Production

Designed as a preventative maintenance solution for the oil and gas industry, the GF320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera from FLIR Systems provides an easy-to-use tool for spotting leaks in tanks, pipelines and facilities.

As a result the camera improves safety and profitability as well as minimizing emissions with less risk of business interruption due to actions from regulatory agencies.

Capable of rapidly scanning large areas and miles of piping, FLIR's GF320 OGI camera finds gas leaks fast.

Optical gas imaging using the GF320  offers a number of benefits compared to traditional "sniffers" because the camera scans a broader area much more rapidly and is able to remotely monitor areas that are difficult to reach with contact measurement tools.

The GF320 camera produces a full picture of the scanned area and leaks appear as a plume of vapour on the camera's viewfinder or LCD, allowing the user to see fugitive gas emissions. The image is viewed in real time and can be recorded in the camera for easy archiving.
