Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), an insulating gas in the distribution of high voltage electrical power, is a very potent greenhouse gas that can possibly leak from power equipment and cause many problems. Utility companies generally use optical gas imaging cameras to detect SF6 leaks in order to ensure the continuity of power distribution and limit the impact on the environment. This case study explains how a utility company in the Czech Republic uses the FLIR GF306 optical gas imaging camera in their inspections.
