Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is a gas used in electrical substations at electric power plants as an insulator in circuit breakers and switchgear. SF6 is harmful to the environment. It has a global warming potential approximately 24,000 times higher than CO2 emissions - more than any other greenhouse gas. Early detection and repair of these leaks is a necessity of electric power plants to protect the environment. For more than 50 years, thousands of utilities worldwide have used infrared thermography to avoid lost revenues, improve service reliability, and prevent hazards to workers and the public.
Today, Look Thermography uses the world's most advanced infrared optical gas imaging camera by FLIR to support the utility industry by detecting and visualizing SF6 and other harmful gases quickly from a safe distance and without the need to interrupt plant production processes.
