Thermal Imaging Systems for Combustion
The challenge every coal plant owner or operator faces is to generate the maximum amount of energy with the lowest emissions in the safest and most economical way. To do so plant operators constantly manage changing fuels, loads, and operations. While switching coals helps to meet price and emissions standards, it can produce greater fouling and slagging of the boiler tube surfaces.
Dirty boiler tubes can reduce efficiency. To keep the plant running at the highest achievable efficiency soot and ash must be optimally cleaned from the boiler tubes. Currently, coal plant operators use a number of ways to clean boiler tubes but have inadequate methods to measure their effectiveness and many have negative impacts such as prolonged downtime and thermal stress to the boiler tubes.
With our Combustion Imaging Solutions customers are able to get continuous imaging inside their boilers, furnaces, kilns and incinerators. The insight our unique thermal imaging systems provide with our high-quality optics, video capabilities and data analysis software, generates increased efficiency, better process control and improved productivity.
