Petroval uses both cooled and uncooled thermal imaging cameras from FLIR Systems for technical audits

A wide variety of industries relies on furnaces and boilers for manufacturing processes. But furnace and boiler equipment is prone to failures from a variety of mechanisms. These include coking that plugs the inside of tubes and impedes product flow, slag build-up on the outside of tubes, clinker damage, under- and over-heating, flame impingement on tubes due to burner misalignment, and product leaks that ignite and cause serious damage to the equipment.

These failures cause not only quality problems; they can also shut down an entire process line. FLIR thermal imaging cameras can detect most of these equipment problems during operation, and at an early stage so failures can be prevented. This allows an orderly shutdown and component replacement, thereby reducing maintenance costs and production losses.
