Detects the Expensive and Harmful SF6 Gas

      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 plants production process. SF6 is a gas used in electrical substations
as 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 24,000 times
higher global warming potential 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.

Find SF6 leaks quickly and safely
Excellent Thermal Sensitivity (<25mK)
High performance LCD & Tiltable high resolution viewfinder delivers a bright and vivid image in poor lighting
  environment or under sunlight
User-inspired Ergonomics: Rotating Handle, Direct Access Buttons
Embedded GPS Data and Digital images allow you to identify precise locations of inspected area
Compatible with FLIR QuickReport and FLIR Reporter software for professional inspection report

Detects SF6

FLIR GF306 enables utilities, manufacturers, and consultants to proactively
diagnose leaks of Sulfur Hexafluoride SF6 in electrical substations and
equipment. SF6 has a significant impact on global climate change with 23,900
times the global warming potential of CO2 and with an atmospheric lifetime of
3,200 years.
