FLIR Advanced Thermal Solutions (ATS) has announced the GF346 Thermal Imaging Camera. Able to remotely scan large areas rapidly, and pinpoint gas leaks in real time, the GF346 is suited for safely monitoring plants where it is difficult to reach components with contact measurement tools such as gas sniffers.

Carbon monoxide (CO) emissions can pose a significant threat to primary steel manufacturing operations and other industries where CO emissions need to be closely watched. Even the slightest leak in a vent stack or pipe can have a devastating effect. The camera enables fast detection of CO emissions thereby helping to ensure safety, protect the environment and save money by finding leaks that decrease profit.

The thermal imaging camera is capable of finding carbon monoxide and other toxic gases / vapours including acetonitrile, acetyl cyanide, arsine, bromine isocyanate, chlorine isocyanate, chlorodimethylsilane, cyanogen bromide, dichloromethylsilane, ethenone, ethyl thiocyanate, germane, hexyl isocyanide, ketene, methyl thiocyanate, nitrous oxide and silane.  Operating over a temperature range from -20 to 300ºC - in high sensitivity mode the GF346 is able to detect even the smallest amounts of leaking gas. The lightweight and robust  camera offers an easy-to-use method of tracing leaks to their source by visualizing them as an image. Literally thousands of components can be scanned per shift without the need to interrupt the process. Using it will reduce repair downtime and provide safe verification of your manufacturing processes.
