The Flir Systems GF343 is a high-performance gas-imaging camera designed to visually detect carbon dioxide (CO2) in real time.

Incorporating a cooled Indium Antimonide (InSb) detector the Flir GF343 is able to provide sensitive detection of even tiny CO2 gas leaks. Carbon Dioxide gas leaks are displayed as plumes of vapour in the camera’s infrared image.

Optical gas imaging using the Flir GF343 is more effective than traditional CO2 sensors because the camera scans a broader area much more rapidly enabling you to locate hard-to-find leaks more quickly. Because the GF343 lets you detect CO2  gas leaks quickly, easily and from a safe remote distance it also offers significant advantages over contact measurement tools, particularly in difficult to reach areas. A fixed-mount version of the GF343 camera is available for inline tightness testing in quality assurance and manufacturing processes.

Flir Systems GF343 OGI camera is a proven effective preventative maintenance tool for technicians and engineers seeking to inspect plant and equipment without interrupting the course of normal operations. Whether carbon dioxide is a by-product of a production process, a trace gas used to detect leaks from power generators, or part of an Enhanced Oil Recovery program, fast and accurate detection of a gas leak is key to keeping your operation running safely, ef­ficiently, and pro­fitably.

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.
