First Uncooled Infrared Camera To Visualize Methane Emissions In Real-Time: FLIR GF77

Source: FLIR Systems, Inc – Oil and Gas Solutions

The FLIR GF77 is the first uncooled infrared camera designed to visualize methane emissions in real-time with interchangeable lens options that detect methane, sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), ethylene, ammonia, and other gas emissions. This affordable alternative is optimized for faster and more efficient gas leak surveys for electric power utilities, oil and natural gas operations, chemical/manufacturing facilities, the food and agriculture industry, and first responders.

The GF77 features a 4-inch touchscreen LCD, 180° rotating optical block, and eyepiece for convenience in direct sunlight. This solution offers the benefit of built-in thermographic calibrations and the flexibility to detect a wide range of gases by changing the lenses.

Additional features include:

  • Dynamic Range: 14-bit
  • Focal Length: 18 mm (0.71 in.)
  • IR Resolution: 320 × 240 pixels
  • Mounting: Standard, 1/4"-20
  • Spectral Range: 7.0 – 8.5 µm
  • Zoom: 1-6x continuous digital zoom
  • No hazardous location compliance
