The ThermaCAM GasFindIR-LW infrared camera detects sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), the colorless, odorless, nontoxic, and nonflammable greenhouse gas that is used as an insulator in high voltage equipment. It weighs 4.6 pounds and is powered by a camcorder battery. It enables users to find SF6 gas leaks up to hundreds of feet away. It delivers real-time, high-resolution thermal images of gas leaks that can be displayed on a standard television or recorded digitally. It also can detect more than 20 other gases in addition to SF6.
