Meer, Belgium — FLIR Systems announces that its FLIR GF320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera offers unmatched advantages for non-invasive monitoring of leaks from biogas storage tanks.

Optical gas imaging using the FLIR GF320 offers tangible benefits compared to traditional biogas leak “sniffers” because it can scan a broader area much more rapidly and monitor areas that are difficult to reach with contact measurement tools.

The portable camera also greatly improves operator safety, by detecting emissions at a safe distance.

fliratspr64-imageAThe FLIR GF320 contains a cooled Indium Antimonide (InSb) detector. This highly sensitive detector, that operates in the 3.2 – 3.4 micrometer waveband, not only visualizes biogas leaks, but also makes the smallest of temperature differences on the storage tank clearly visible.

The FLIR GF320 will be on display in Stand A328, Halle 20 at BioGasWorld, an international trade exhibition for biogas technology and decentralised energy supplies, due to take place in Berlin, Germany (23-25th April 2013).
