Infrared camera for furnace and electrical inspections
      FLIR GF309 is used for high temperature industrial furnace applications. FLIR GF309 is designed to see through flames in all types of gas-fired furnaces, chemical heaters, coal-fired boilers. As the camera has an exceptionally wide span of temperature range it will also perform high accuracy electrical and mechanical inspections, making it a very useful instrument for its owner.

Measures temperatures from -40 °C to +1500 °C with high accuracy
Dual-use camera: Furnace and ambient temperatures
Excellent Thermal Sensitivity (<25 mK)
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

Visualized gas leak in real-time
      The FLIR GF309 is designed for high temperature industrial furnace applications. These
cameras are ideal for monitoring all types of furnaces, heaters and boilers, particularly
in the chemical, petrochemical and utility industries. Custom-built to see through
flames, the GF309 also features a detachable heat-shield designed to reflect heat away
from the camera and camera operator, providing increased protection.
Multi-purposes in gas leak detection
      The FLIR GF309 infrared camera provides temperature readings across the entire
surface of your heater/boiler/furnace and will help you to inspect faster, work safer and
avert unscheduled shutdowns and, worse, catastrophic failures.

Gas leak detection in oil refineries                Natural gas                       Power generation         Petrochemical & chemical industries

The infrared image shows isolated areas of tube overheating which are not being
detected by the temperature thermocouples. This situation typically results in a localized
tube failure. Coking and patchy scale are present.

Tiltable, Flip-out 4.3 High Contrast Color LCD helps you view targets more safely
from many angles, and avoid eye strain after long time.

The new GF309 is equipped with a special midwave flame filter for high temperature
(up to 1500°C) furnace inspections and boiler inspections. Additionally, the nickel coated
heat shield contoured to improve worker safety and comfort during inspection.
