Gas Detection Cameras

By Flir Systems Australia

Optical Gas Imaging

The FLIR range of optical gas imaging cameras cover many gases and are utilised in many ways; such as the petrochemical and refinery industry, oil and gas extraction and distribution, and in SF6 detection and for environmental enforcement.


FLIR GF304 Portable Cameras

The FLIR GF304 is a gas imaging camera which was especially developed for the detection of refrigerant gases without the need to shut down the operation.

Refrigerant gases are used worldwide in the food industry and also used in the chemical, pharmaceutical and automotive industries, and in air conditioning systems. While refrigerant gases are vital for many industries they are also damaging to the environment, which is why it is of the utmost importance to find leaks quickly and easy.

The FLIR GF304 detects the following refrigerant gases:












FLIR GF306 Portable Cameras


FLIR GF306 portable infrared cameras are made to detect SF6 (Sulfur Hexafluoride), a greenhouse gas that is dangerous to the environment and has 23,900 more global warming potential than C02 (Carbon Dioxide). Aside from SF6, GF306 cameras can also detect: Acetyl Chloride 

Acetic Acid 

Allyl Bromide

Allyl Chloride 

Allyl Fluoride 

Ammonia (NH3) 


Chlorine Dioxide

Ethyl Cyanoacrylate 





Methyl Ethyl Ketone 

Methyl Vinyl Ketone 





Uranyl Fluoride 

Vinyl Chloride 

Vinyl Cyanide 

Vinyl Ethe


FLIR GF309 Portable Cameras


The FLIR GF309 sees through flames and is designed for the high-temperature measurement of industrial furnaces, chemical heaters, and coal-fired boilers. The portable camera also greatly improves operator safety, by measuring through flames at a safe distance, without the need to shut down the operation. Knowledge of the condition of a furnace can avert failures and unscheduled shutdowns.


FLIR GF320 Portable Cameras

The FLIR GF320 provides optical gas imaging of methane and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs), without the need to shut down the operation. The camera greatly improves operator safety, by detecting emissions at a safe distance, and helps to protect the environment by quickly and easily tracing VOC leaks.

The FLIR GF320 detects the following gases:

  • Benzene 
  • Ethanol 
  • Ethylbenzene 
  • Heptane 
  • Hexane 
  • Isoprene 
  • Methanol 
  • MEK 
  • MIBK 
  • Octane 
  • Pentane 
  • 1-Pentene 
  • Toluene 
  • Xylene 
  • Butane 
  • Ethane 
  • Methane 
  • Propane 
  • Ethylene 
  • Propylene 

FLIR GF346 Portable Cameras

The FLIR GF346 enables fast detection of CO emissions, helping to ensure safety, protect the environment and investments in infrastructure in primary steel manufacturing operations and similar industries.


FLIR GF346 can scan large areas and difficult to reach components, rapidly and pinpoint leaks in real time, without the need to interrupt the process.


Besides detecting carbon monoxide, the FLIR GF346 is capable of detecting the following gases as well:

  • Acetonitrile 
  • Acetyl cyanide 
  • Arsine 
  • Bromine isocyanate 
  • Chlorine isocyanate 
  • Chlorodimethylsilane 
  • Cyanogen bromide 
  • Dichloromethylsilane 
  • Ethenone 
  • Ethyl thiocyanate 
  • Germane 
  • Hexyl isocyanide 
  • Ketene 
  • Methyl thiocyanate 
  • Nitrous oxide 
  • Silane 
  • Butyl Isocyanide
