Detecting SF6 Leaks from Electrical Circuit Breakers

Detecting SF6 Leaks from Electrical Circuit Breakers

FLIR Systems GF306 optical gas imaging camera has been designed to address the challenge that electrical power stations face in detecting gas leaks from their Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) circuit breakers.

The longer a leak from a SF6 circuit breaker is left undetected and not repaired, the more revenue is lost, and the greater the impact on the environment from the electrical power station.

By using a portable, non-contact FLIR GF306 optical gas imaging camera - electrical power engineers can remotely visualize SF6 leaks from a safe...

Effectively combat spills

Effectively combat spills

Uncontrolled spills can have a devastating effect on the environment, on people and businesses in the vicinity of the spill, and on a company’s future. Well prepared companies can stop spills before they cause workplace accidents, affect the health of employees and people living nearby, damage the environment and contaminate water. Investing in spill control tools can prevent major costs in fines, damages and pollution cleanup.

 

Beside ideas on how to prepare for...

High Sensitivity Gas Leak Visualisation

High Sensitivity Gas Leak Visualisation

FLIR Systems GFx320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera offers quick, non-contact measurement of gas leaks in real time. Using its unique High Sensitivity Mode the camera is able to set a new superior standard for gas leak detection performance. High Sensitivity Mode is based upon an image subtraction video processing technique that effectively enhances the thermal sensitivity of the camera. The HSM feature subtracts a percentage of individual pixel signals from frames in the video stream from the subsequent frames, thus enhancing the differences between frames, which make leaks stand out more...

Safeguarding Staff from Carbon Monoxide Leaks

Safeguarding Staff from Carbon Monoxide Leaks

The FLIR GF346 Optical Gas Imaging Camera is designed to detect even the smallest Carbon Monoxide (CO) leaks. Able to scan large areas rapidly and pinpoint leaks in real time, the GF346 is ideal for monitoring plants where it is difficult to reach components with contact measurement tools such as gas sniffers. Using a FLIR GF346 safeguards personnel from the dangers of Carbon Monoxide poisoning, reduces repair downtime and provides verification of the process. And above all it is exceptionally safe, allowing potentially dangerous...
