       Legislation Drives Demand for Detection of Fluorinated Greenhouse Gas Emissions

FLIR Systems reports growing demand, from the power utility sector, for its FLIR GF306 optical gas imaging camera as they seek compliance with EU legislation** on Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) emissions ahead of the 2019 deadline.

SF6 is used in the electric power industry as an insulator and quenching medium for gas-insulated substations and circuit breakers. The portable, non-contact GF306 camera allows you to quickly scan substations for leaks while maintaining a safe distance from high-voltage equipment. By catching leaks early, the GF306 reduces lost revenue to breakdowns and repairs as well as assuring future regulatory compliance. 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.

The FLIR GF306 visualizes SF6 emissions and is the only optical gas imaging camera that has the sensitivity to detect levels of 0.1% of total SF6 amount in any given system.

With its superior resolution, thermal sensitivity, and the option of a High Sensitivity Mode, the FLIR GF306 allows you to visualize SF6 leaks so you can pinpoint the exact source of the emissions and begin repairs immediately. In addition, the GF306 can accurately measure temperatures, allowing you to note temperature differentials and improve visual contrast for better gas plume detection.
