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 Thermal imaging can also easily be used for tank-level detection. Thanks to emissivity effects or to temperature differences the thermal image clearly shows the level of the liquid. These thermal images clearly show the level of liquids in the storage tanks. Other applications include:
- Finding hot spots in welding robots
- Inspection of aeronautical material
- Mould inspection
- Checking temperature distribution in asphalt pavements
- Inspections in paper mills
Whether you are interested in inspecting electrical installations, mechanical equipment, tank levels, installations with refractory material, pipe-work, flare burners and many, many more, thermal imaging is the perfect tool for all industrial applications. References: Flir Systems

A click of the mouse enables users to normalize consumption data, convert the data to cost or carbon dioxide emissions, and change engineering units on the fly. This gives facility managers a powerful tool to minimize energy consumption, maximize comfort, and achieve sustainable building operations
Balancing Efficiency with Comfort
WebCTRL Environmental Index – Balancing Efficiency With Comfort
As energy prices continue to soar, facility managers are under increasing pressure to find ways to cut building operating costs. A simple solution would be to decrease energy consumption, but smart managers know that sacrificing comfort for energy savings could lead to even bigger financial problems. After all, studies have shown productivity decreases as comfort levels decline, leading to lost revenues in companies and difficult learning environments in school systems. What’s needed is a way to measure comfort, so managers would know exactly how far to cut energy usage without negatively impacting comfort.
Automated Logic’s Environmental Index provides the solution. Since the key component of comfort is temperature, ALC’s index starts with assigning point values based on the difference between zone temperature and heating and cooling set points. Other factors, such as humidity and CO2 levels, can also be computed into the numeric system to reflect one “comfort” score for all factors. This is a powerful tool for facility managers who need to identify buildings with performance problems or ensure buildings don’t become less efficient as changes are made.
