FLIR GF309 - .PDF file.

The Flir GF309 is an infrared camera from Flir Advanced Thermal Solutions (ATS) that is specially designed for high-temperature inspection of industrial furnaces, heaters and boilers.

Custom built to see through flames, the GF309 also features a detachable heat shield designed to reflect heat away from the camera and camera operator, providing increased protection.

The camera is equipped with a special mid-wave ‘flame filter’ that is specifically engineered for high-temperature operation (up to 1,500C).

The Flir GF309 infrared camera provides temperature readings across the entire surface of a heater/boiler/furnace and aids quick inspection to avert unscheduled shutdowns.

As the camera has a wide temperature measurement range (-40C to + 1,500C), it is able to perform electrical and mechanical inspections.

Images from the Flir GF309 camera can be saved to any off-the-shelf video recorder for archiving and documentation purposes.

Data is compatible with Flir Quickreport and Flir Reporter software for professional inspection reporting.

The Flir GF309 includes a tiltable, flip-out 4.3in high-contrast colour LCD, enabling users to view targets more safely from many angles.

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.
