Success Story using SF6 GasfindIR supIRman 12/19/2007
Hello fellow thermographers! I just would like to know if you have any success story that you can share to me on the SF6 camera usage.

I have clients that are very interested in purchasing the unit but they need to know the cost benefits of acquiring one.

Thanks

I took this camera to an East Coast utility to try it out and the results were quite good. I would be happy to email a technical paper we wrote as well as videos of leaks. We found a leak in a rupture disk 40 feet away, plus other leaks in comprssor cabinets including cracked bellows, diaphragm and connections.

"Sniffers" with some effort can find compressor cabinet leaks, albeit much slower than the GasFindIR LW. But you are not going to sniff rupture disks at 40 feet near 500KV power.

Hi doctir bob! Thank you for your reply.
I would be glad if you could give me a copy of the technical paper you mentioned.

It would be a great help. Thanks

I use the SF6 GasfindIR all the time. I have nothing but good luck finding gas leaks. The only time the leaks are difficult to find is when it is real windy out. Other than that this is a great investment for finding costly leaks.

I would like to have a copy of the paper you wrote. We have some leaks on some of our breakers and are interested in how you use the camera.

I would love to see your paper and videos, please send to contact@go-ir.com.
