IR CAMERA AND GAS DETECTOR COMBINE TO SPOT SF6 LEAKS

Fluke has simplified troubleshooting of high-voltage installations by combining an infra-red camera with a sulphur hexafluoride gas detector in a single handheld instrument. The new Ti450 SF6 gas leak detector allows maintenance staff to pinpoint the location a sulphur hexafluoride leak without shutting equipment down.

The Ti450 SF6 allows utility crews to include leak detection as a normal part of their maintenance routine, letting them conduct both infra-red and gas inspections whenever and wherever necessary. It eliminates the need to wait for special annual or biannual leak inspections, and the corresponding expensive equipment rentals or contractors, so maintenance work can be done as required, reducing potential equipment damage.

With its pistol-grip design, the Ti450 SF6 simplifies fault diagnosis down to a point-and-shoot level of convenience, even in hard to reach or high overhead locations. And technicians can monitor leaks more frequently allowing maintenance to be scheduled at a convenient time without unplanned downtime. The leak detector can also be used to verify that a repair has been carried out.

The infra-red camera includes LaserSharp autofocus to instantly focus on a single target using a built-in laser distance meter to calculate and display the distance to the designated target with pinpoint accuracy. Technician can precisely target up to 30 metres away for infra-red readings and SF6 gas detection no matter how awkward the position of the target. This makes it safe to measure around high-voltage equipment.

The Ti450 SF6 comes complete with a telephoto smart lens, tripod holder, eye piece, cable, viewer, batteries and chargers, all in a hard shell carrying case. SF6 gas detection training tools are available from the Fluke website.
