The FLIR GF306 detects and visualizes SF6 (Sulfur Hexafluoride) and 25 other harmful gases quickly from a safe distance and without the need to interrupt your plant's production process.


SF6 is a gas used in electrical substations at electric power plants as an insulator in circuit breakers and switchgear. The gas is also used in magnesium production and semiconductor manufacturing. SF6 is harmful to the environment. It has a global warming potential 24,000 times higher than CO2 emissions - more than any other greenhouse gas. Early detection and repair of leaks is a contribution of electric power plants to protect the environment.

Product Overview

• Improved efficiency: The FLIR GF306 reduces revenue loss by pinpointing even small gas leaks quickly and
require US Government authorization for export efficiently, and from a distance. It also reduces the inspection time by allowing a broad area to be scanned rapidly
purposes. Diversion contrary to US law is prohibited. and without the need to de-energize components in the high-voltage area. The wireless connectivity of the camera
allows you to connect to smart phones or tablet PCs for the wireless transfer of images or remote control of the
camera. The FLIR GF306 can also be used for temperature measurement, which makes it even more useful for
predictive maintenance of high-voltage equipment.

• Increased worker safety: OGI allows gas leaks to be detected in a non-contact mode and from a safe distance. This
prevents electrical exposure to personnel working in a high-voltage area. With a GF306 gas imaging camera it is
easy to scan areas of interest that are difficult to reach with conventional methods. The camera is ergonomically
designed, with a bright LCD and tiltable viewfinder, which facilitates its use over a full working day.

• Protecting the environment: SF6 is a well-known greenhouse gas that can cause harm to the environment, and is
usually governed by regulations. SF6 has a global warming potential 24,000 times higher than CO2. Even small
leaks can be detected and documented using the FLIR GF306 camera.
