Many types of heating operations require a fast, non-contact method for gathering qualitative and quantitative information to prevent or minimize downtime. A through-flame thermal camera offers thermal and visual imaging capabilities for seeing conditions invisible to the naked eye while in context to a visible world. This application note discusses how through-flame imaging works and how to use these cameras to detect most equipment problems during heating operation — and at an early stage — so that failures can be prevented.
