Optical gas imaging cameras from FLIR can visualize and pinpoint gas leaks. With an optical gas imaging camera it is easy to continuously scan installations that are in remote areas or in zones that are difficult to access.

Continuous monitoring means that you will immediately see when a dangerous or costly gas leak appears so that immediate action can be taken. Optical gas imaging (OGI) cameras are widely used in industrial settings such as oil refineries natural gas processing plants, offshore platforms, chemical/ petrochemical industries, and biogas and power generation plants. 

OGI cameras like the FLIR G300 pt can detect harmful VOC (volatile organic compounds) that can seriously harm the environment.

  • Operating temperature range: –20°C to +50°C (–4°F to +122°F) 

Easy to control

FLIR G300pt is easy to control from a safe distance. It can be fully controlled over Ethernet and easily integrated in a TCP/ IP network. 

Available lenses

The FLIR G300pt is available with a 23 mm or 38 mm lens. Longer lenses give you a narrower field of view so that you can detect gas leaks from farther away.

Complete solution mounted on a precise pan/tilt mechanism

The FLIR G300pt is integrated in a robust housing that is mounted on a pan/tilt mechanism. It allows the user to rotate the camera 360° continuously and to tilt it +45° or -45°. It allows monitoring different areas with the same system. This is ideal if you want to simultaneously monitor gas leaks and use the system for predictive maintenance applications.

The pan/tilt has 128 preset positions, perfect for when you want to scan different areas continuously. The G300pt is also equipped with a long-range daylight/low light camera. Get simultaneous video output of the thermal imaging and daylight/low light camera. The daylight camera offers a 36x optical zoom.

FLIR G300pt detects the following gases:

Benzene, Ethanol, Ethylbenzene, Heptane, Hexane, Isoprene, Methanol, MEK, MIBK, Octane, Pentane, 1-Pentene, Toluene, m-xylene, Butane, Ethane, Methane, Propane, Ethylene and Propylene.
