The largest commercial infrared company in the world, FLIR has been designing, building, and integrating high-performance infrared cameras for nearly 50 years. FLIR cameras play pivotal roles in a wide range of industrial, commercial, and government activities in over 60 countries.
FLIR provides gas and petrochemical companies with a wide array of cameras to visualize fugitive gas emissions, find critical faults, and verify completed repairs. Whether you need a handheld optical gas imaging camera for surveying your entire operation, a fixed camera for continuous monitoring, or an Intrinsically Safe GFx320 for Class I/Div II hazardous areas, FLIR has the tools you need to get the job done.
FLIR’s other divisions produce thermal camera systems for a wide variety of military, paramilitary, law enforcement, and public safety missions, as well as for automotive and maritime night vision, personal night vision, firefighting, and industrial and home security uses. In addition, FLIR supplies camera cores and other sub-components to OEMs and system integrators.

The FLIR GF620 is an optical imaging camera designed to detect and visualize methane and other volatile organic compounds. This high-resolution, high-sensitivity camera features a 640 x 480 IR detector. It is also the first FLIR OGI camera to offer Quantification mode (Q-mode) for streamlined set-up of the optional QL320 gas quantification system.
The FLIR GF77 is the first uncooled infrared camera designed to visualize methane emissions in real-time. This affordable alternative is optimized for faster and more efficient gas leak surveys in renewable energy production, natural gas power plants, and at locations along the natural gas supply chain.
The QL320™ is system designed with Providence Photonics’ new Quantitative Optical Gas Imaging (qOGI) technology that works solely with FLIR GFx320 or FLIR GF320 cameras. With this partnership, surveyors can measure mass leak rates or volumetric leak rates for most hydrocarbons. With usage capabilities at a variety of distances, operators can monitor hard to reach areas and storage tanks from a safe location.
The FLIR A6604 optical gas infrared imaging camera is designed for continuously scanning installations in remote areas or zones that are difficult to access. These cameras are widely used in industrial settings, such as oil refineries, natural gas processing plants, offshore platforms, chemical/petrochemical complexes, and biogas, and power generation plants. They are also able to detect harmful greenhouse gases that can seriously harm the environment.
The FLIR G300 a optical gas infrared imaging camera is designed for continuously scanning installations in remote areas or zones that are difficult to access. These cameras are widely used in industrial settings, such as oil refineries, natural gas processing plants, offshore platforms, chemical/petrochemical complexes, and biogas, and power generation plants.
The GF343 is an infrared optical gas imaging camera designed to quickly and easily detect CO2 leaks from a safe distance. This non-contact CO2 detection technology helps prevent unplanned outages by permitting the inspection of equipment while it is still online in the course of normal operations.
FLIR offers the GF306 optical gas imaging camera designed to visualize and pinpoint SF6 and other gas emissions without the need to shut down operations. With the ability to quickly scan wide areas for leaks at safe distances, these cameras enable quicker repairs, and reduce revenue costs and safety concerns involved with gas-insulated substation and circuit breakers.
The FLIR GF300/GF320 cameras are designed for the detection of methane and Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) fugitive emissions that come from the production, transportation, and use of oil and natural gas. These cameras operate by scanning large-scale areas and visualize potential gas leaks in real-time. They are ideal for monitoring plants that are difficult to reach with contact measurement tools.
FLIR introduces the GFx320 camera featuring innovative optical gas imaging technology and designed specifically for detecting methane, other hydrocarbons, and volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions in many different sites such as well sites and offshore platforms. With calibration for temperature measurement to determine optimal ΔT between the gas compound and the background, the ability to detect more than 400 gas compounds, and FLIR's unique High Sensitivity Mode (HSM), this thermal camera accentuates plume movement with through image subtraction for the best images to find leaks and save on costs.
This webinar, hosted by Craig O’Neill, Director of Strategic Business Development for OGI/Oil and Gas Industry at FLIR, is meant to offer a better understanding of the similarities and differences in cooled and uncooled optimal gas imaging (OGI) cameras. Topics discussed will include the science behind the two types of cameras as well as the differences in gas contrast and sensitivity.
Work place dangers are an everyday concern when surveying for fugitive methane emissions. At well sites, offshore rigs, production plants and more, there will always be the risk of leaking gases could collect in dangerous concentrations. As a solution, FLIR introduces its new GFx320 optical gas imaging (OGI) camera that is intrinsically safe to take on worksites.
