IR Application Examples-2













Here are some examples of Infrared Thermography used in process analysis, condition monitoring, non-destructive testing (NDT),  and equipment evaluation.  They are just a few of the possible ways IR can help you FIND and SOLVE your problems! 






IR image of FRP process equipt with impending failures




NDT / equipment condition examples

These two images show a piece of fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) equipment.  The equipment is 8 ft. in diameter and carries chlorine dioxide, a very aggressive chemical used in pulp bleaching.  Each of the cool spots is an initiated failure of the FRP, approximately 6-12 inches in size.  This determination was made without interrupting the process in any way!

Any thermal process or process with a thermal signature can be examined by this technology.

IR image of a problem hot area on a boiler




These images of a fire tube boiler exterior show a significant hot area that represents a safety hazard, an undesirable energy loss, and a threat to the longevity of the boiler.  It was caused by bracing that had been installed in the end cap of the boiler.  "You saved us a boiler replacement."

The integrity of insulation, seals, and gaskets can be evaluated rapidly, reliably, and safely with IR thermography.

Any thermal process or process with a thermal signature can be examined by this technology. 













We can help you FIND your manufacturing problems.
