Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) Camera for Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF₆)

Ask us about this item

The FLIR G306 is an innovative Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera used to visualize sulfur hexafluoride (SF₆), ammonia (NH), ethylene (C₂H₄), and other industrial gas leaks in various environments. SF₆ is a potent greenhouse gas with a global warming potential that’s more than 23,000 times greater than C0₂ over a 100-year period. SF₆ is commonly used within the electric power industry as an insulator and quenching medium for gas-insulated substations and circuit breakers. With the portable, non-contact G306, you can safely and efficiently scan substations for dangerous and environmentally harmful gas leaks without interfering with electric utility delivery or shutting down industrial operations.

The FLIR G306 accurately measures temperatures from -40°C to 500°C (-40°F to 932°F) and FLIR’s patented High-Sensitivity Mode (HSM) makes (SF₆) and other industrial gas leaks stand out more clearly while allowing you to efficiently scan thousands of components


Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® allow you to connect to smartphones or tablets and effortlessly edit and store images in the cloud, or wirelessly transfer files using the included FLIR Ignite™ cloud service

Comfortably operate and interact with your G306 thanks to a rotating 10.16 cm (4 in) LCD touchscreen, which allows you view targets from any direction
