Camera Detects Methane Gas Without Cooling

FLIR Systems’ FLIR GF77 is the company’s first uncooled thermal camera designed for detecting methane. Reportedly, it provides methane gas detection capability at roughly half the price of cooled gas inspection thermal cameras.  

 

Light weight, the GF77 features an ergonomic design, a vibrant LCD touchscreen, and a viewfinder to make it easy to use in any lighting conditions. The camera is engineered specifically to detect methane to improve gas inspections and reduce the chance of false readings. The GF77 also offers FLIR’s patented High Sensitivity Mode (HSM), which accentuates movement to make tiny gas plumes more visible to the user.
