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