ThermaCAM® GasFindIR™LW
The Nr 1 Infrared gas imaging camera detecting sulfur hexafluoride (SF6)

GasFindIRInfrared gas imaging camera enables utilities, manufacturers, and consultants to proactively diagnose leaks of Sulfur Hexafluoride SF6 in electrical substations and equipment.

A Solution that Makes Sense
The integrity of numerous electrical substations around the world are being compromised by age, weather, and other factors. As a result, highly-potent SF6 gases are escaping from electrical transmission and distribution equipment at increasing rates. This has a huge economic and environmental impact.

Before FLIR Systems introduced the new GasFindIR LW, it was impossible for the utility industry to efficiently survey and find SF6 gas leaks in substation equipment. Earlier methods of SF6 detection required close or near contact using “sniffer”technology and probes. These methods can be time consuming, unsafe, or impractical for examining live high-voltage equipment.
