    Other applications

    Apart from the applications already mentioned there are
    numerous other applications where thermal imaging technology
    is being used.

    Flare detection

    During certain production processes gasses are generated
    which are burned off in flares. The flames generated can be
    invisible to the human eye. It is important to be sure that the
    flare is burning. Otherwise, harmful gasses might enter the
    atmosphere. Thermal imaging can easily see if the flare is
    burning or not.

    A thermal imaging camera can monitor flames that are invisible to the naked eye. Note
    that the flare is invisible on the visual image.

    Tank level detection

  • Petrochemical Applications

    Refractory and Petrochemical Installations

    A wide variety of industries rely on furnaces and boilers for
    manufacturing processes, but the refractory linings for furnaces,
    boilers, kilns, incinerators, crackers and reactors are prone to
    degeneration and loss of performance. With a thermal imaging
    camera damaged refractory material and the corresponding heat
    loss can be easily located, as the heat transmission will show up
    clearly on a thermal image.

    Thermal imaging cameras are widely used in the petrochemical
    sector. They provide rapid, accurate diagnosis for furnace
    maintenance, refractory loss management and condenser fin
    diagnosis. Heat exchangers can be checked to detect blocked

  • Why use Thermal Imaging

    Why use thermal imaging?

    Producing faster, better, more efficiently and at a lower cost.
    In order to reach these goals, industrial plants need to be
    running continuously: 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

    No costly breakdowns, no waste of time.

    So, when you are in charge of plant predictive maintenance
    you really have a lot of responsibility on your shoulders.

    If you could only see when components are about to fail, you
    could accurately decide the best time to take corrective action.
    Unfortunately the worst problems remain hidden until it is too
