A Smart Solution

Flir Gas FindIR

Most piping, flanges, and connections in petrochemical operations are fault-free. However, uncontrollable factors can cause a small portion of components to fail. Even the slightest leak or failure can have a devastating effect. To help ensure safety, protect the environment, and protect your investment in your infrastructure, the GasFindIR HSX camera enables fast detection of fugitive emissions.

More Integration Times

More user settings in the new HSX allow the camera to be optimized for the environment and climate scene in which gases are present. FLIR's new GasFindIR HSX camera delivers nine user-selectable integration modes. Normal Scene, Cold Scene, and Hot Scene can be selected at 60 Hz, 30 Hz, or 15 Hz. This allows you to change frame acquisition rates for better image performance in hot and cold environments to help you find the smallest leaks. The GasFindIR HSX is a real-time infrared camera that can scan images at 60, 30, or 15 images per second.

It's Innovative

The GasFindIR HSX camera takes advantage of an advanced cooled InSb detector and optical systems that are tuned to very narrow spectral infrared ranges.

High Sensitivity Mode

Images are processed and enhanced by the GasFindIR HSX High Sensitivity Mode which clearly shows the presence of gases. Gases that are detectable by the GasFindIR HSX camera appear as smoke. And with the five-fold increase in image clarity of HSM, users are able to determine smaller leaks, so they can be repaired before conditions become dangerous and costly.

The camera's controls are easily accessible and a built-in menu system gives users access to in-camera software tools for additional functions.

Productive Scanning

The camera includes a 25 mm wide-angle lens for scanning of a variety of components and operations. The camera helps improve productivity by enabling wide-angle scans of piping systems and views of pipelines from moving vehicles.

More Choice of Power

The GasFindIR HSX gives you more power choices so you can concentrate on the critical work at hand - find gas leaks. The GasFindIR HSX can be operated by battery, with up to eight hours continuous use. The camera also can be connected to AC power for round-the-clock use. Or the camera can be connected to 12-volt power for vehicle-based inspections. This gives thermographers greater flexibility in critical surveys.
