FLIR Launches Intrinsically Safe FLIR GFx320 Gas Detection Thermal Camera for Oil and Gas Industry
FLIR GFx320 Detects Hydrocarbon Gases and is Compliant to Standards for Use in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
WILSONVILLE, OR--(Marketwired - Jan 10, 2017) - FLIR Systems, Inc. (
As a certified Intrinsically Safe OGI camera, the FLIR GFx320 represents groundbreaking technology for surveying critical and potentially dangerous work zones. Instead of scanning for fugitive and non-fugitive gas emissions from outside hazardous areas, with the FLIR GFx320 workers can assess potential risks from afar and, once the area is deemed safe, enter with the camera to continue scanning. The first FLIR camera with the Intrinsically Safe designation, the GFx320 allows surveyors to improve their safety and work with more confidence on the job site.
Like FLIR's existing GF320 model, the FLIR GFx320 is calibrated to measure temperature, allowing users to achieve optimal thermal contrast between the gas compound and the background scene. The camera is also verified to meet sensitivity standards defined in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) OOOOa methane rule, and tags each recording with GPS data to meet additional regulatory requirements for reporting.
"With the recent tightening of methane regulations both in the United States and globally, oil and gas producers need a fast and safe way to find and image gas emissions," said Andy Teich, President and CEO at FLIR. "With the ability to keep workers safe and identify greenhouse gases such as methane, the GFx320 represents another critical example of FLIR's technology helping to protect lives and preserve the environment."
The GFx320 is available worldwide today through established FLIR distribution channels. For more information, visit www.flir.com/gfx320 .
