The GF77 from FLIR Systems is an affordable, handheld methane detection camera that allows inspection professionals to actually see invisible methane leaks and other industrial gases at natural gas power plants, renewable energy production facilities, industrial plants, and other locations along a natural gas supply chain. Using the GF77, leaks can now be more quickly identified which helps better protect the environment, avoid product losses and create a safer work environment.

The GF77 is spectrally filtered to optimally visualize methane gas. Spectral targeting improves visualization, while also reducing false negatives from gases that absorb in other wavelengths. This innovative optical gas imaging camera also offers many unique and proven features, such as 1-Touch Level/Span. With a quick tap on the screen, 1-Touch Level/Span automatically improves contrast between the gas compound and the background scene, further minimizing false detection and strengthening confidence. And for very low-contrast situations, the GF77 offers FLIR-patented High Sensitivity Mode (HSM) to accentuate plume movement.


Based upon the award-winning design of the FLIR-Series camera platform, the GF77 incorporates a sensitive uncooled detector enabling it to provide methane gas detection capability at roughly half the price of cooled gas inspection thermal cameras. This means a wider range of companies across the oil and gas industry will be able to reduce emissions and ensure a safer work environment for more of their personnel. With the affordable price point lowering the barrier to entry, more professionals can access the technology to help keep them safe, saving companies time and money.

With the GF77, inspection professionals can also organize their findings in the field using the camera’s built-in voice annotation, GPS tagging, customizable work folders, and Wi-Fi connections for video streaming or sharing.

FLIR Systems specialises in technologies that enhance perception and awareness.  The company brings innovative sensing solutions into daily life through its thermal imaging and visible light imaging technology and systems for measurement, diagnosis, location and advanced threat detection.  Its products improve the way people interact with the world around them, enhance productivity, increase energy efficiency and make the workplace safer.

FLIR Systems has six operating segments – surveillance, instruments, OEM and emerging markets, maritime, security and finally, detection. Of these six, ‘instruments’ is of greatest interest to trade and industry and the second largest segment in the company’s portfolio. This division provides devices that image, measure and assess thermal energy, gases and other environmental elements for industrial, commercial and scientific applications.

These products are manufactured across five production sites, three in the USA and two in Europe; Sweden and Estonia.

A model to suit every application and budget
The options that FLIR Systems provides for measuring temperature and studying thermal performance have never been greater.  Not only does the company offer a huge range of models to suit all thermal application needs but the technology is also affordable and very easy to use.  Thermal cameras now come in various shapes, sizes and degrees of sophistication and FLIR continues to invest heavily in the development of new and complementary technologies to differentiate itself from competitors.

An important milestone in the development of thermal imaging has been the introduction of the FLIR Lepton® core, a micro longwave detector, the size of a mobile SIM.  This has allowed thermal imaging to be repackaged to meet the needs of an even wider audience and, in combination with another new technology called Infrared Guided Measurement – IGM™ – has led to the development of a range of test and measurement meters with imaging capability.

Another important growth area for FLIR thermal imaging is in continuous monitoring to assure quality and safety.  Through its introduction of discrete fixed mounted thermal cameras which are fully compliant industry standard plug-and-play protocols, FLIR Systems has provided industry with infrared machine vision which is instantly ready for quick and easy network installation.

Protecting assets and people from fire is an area for which thermal imaging is least known but, thanks to FLIR Systems’ development, it is now one of the most cost-effective methods available.  Its application flexibility and rapid return on investment present an attractive proposition for any site or safety manager.
