Model: GF306, 24° FOV

The FLIR GF306 optical gas imaging camera visualizes sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) and other gas emissions without the need to shut down operations. SF6 is used in the electric power industry as an insulator and quenching medium for gas-insulated substations and circuit breakers. The portable, non-contact GF306 allows you to quickly scan substations for leaks while maintaining a safe distance from high-voltage equipment. By catching leaks early, the GF306 reduces lost revenue to breakdowns and repairs.

FLIR GF306 Datasheet
Stop Leaks. Maximize Uptime.


GF306 inspections are faster than traditional leak-detection tools, and capable of detecting SF6, anhydrous ammonia (NH3), and ethylene (C2H4).



The GF306 accurately measures temperatures up to 500°C, making it a sound addition to your facility’s predictive maintenance program.


Reduce revenue loss by detecting gas leaks efficiently, at a safe distance away from high-voltage areas.
