The gas detector model GIR-10 is used for the detection of the smallest SF6 gas concentrations and is thus ideal for detecting the place and size of leakages.

The leakage detection is carried out using a hand-held instrument, which has a movable gooseneck with gas inlet on the front side. An exchangeable filter prevents particles from being sucked in, thus protecting the infrared sensor.

Operation: Front LCD screen operation

Operating temperature range: 0 °C … +35 °C Nominal temperature range: 18 °C … +28 °C Storage temperature range: -30 °C … +60 °C

Battery life span: Lithium ion battery.

Weight: 3kg kg without accessories ≤ 5.5 kg incl. accessories and batteries in carrying case Case material: NORYL, shock -and scratch proof thermoplast

Key Features

These are the features and specifications of the GIR-10 Gas Detector:

Infrared technology

The GIR-10, which is based on the non-dispersive infrared technology (NDIR), offers fast response times and reliable measured values even in case of small leakages.

Simple operation

This instrument is characterised by simple handling and good readability. Both the hand-held instrument and the console case are equipped with a digital indicator which is easy to read. This allows reading the current SF6 gas values from any position.


The GIR-10 Gas Detector serves as a crucial tool for various applications related to SF6 gas detection. This advanced instrument employs non-dispersive infrared technology (NDIR) to achieve unparalleled accuracy in locating and quantifying SF6 gas leakages. Its primary applications include:

  • Leak localisation — The GIR-10 excels in pinpointing the exact location of SF6 gas leaks, offering precision that is essential for maintaining the integrity of gas-filled equipment.
  • Leak rate determination — During the final inspection of SF6 gas-filled equipment, the GIR-10 aids in determining leak rates with meticulous accuracy. This capability ensures that equipment meets safety standards and regulatory requirements.
  • Low concentration detection — With the ability to detect concentrations as low as 0.6 ppmv, the GIR-10 is particularly adept at identifying even the smallest SF6 gas concentrations. This sensitivity is crucial for early detection and preventive maintenance.
  • Humidity and VOC insensitivity — Thanks to its exclusive response to SF6 gas, the GIR-10 remains unaffected by humidity and common volatile organic compounds (VOC), providing reliable results in various environmental conditions.
  • Fast response times — Leveraging infrared technology, the GIR-10 delivers rapid response times, enabling swift and efficient gas detection in critical situations.
