BoilerSpection-IM is a critical tool to analyze and verify the effects of process and equipment changes and helps plant operators identify tube leaks, guide cleaning processes, and tune the combustion.
Online PR News – 20-November-2012 – Santa Clara, California – BoilerSpection-IM utilizes a special mid-wave infrared detector to provide the most clear and stable through-flame images
LumaSense Technologies, Inc. released the BoilerSpection-IM, an easy-to-use mobile infrared camera system for clear inspection of boiler tubes and furnace walls (www.lumasenseinc.com/EN/products/thermal-imaging-systems/boilerspection/boilerspection-im/ target="_blank" class="highlight_link">http://www.lumasenseinc.com/EN/products/thermal-imaging-systems/boilerspection/boilerspection-im/). This solution is the most recent addition to the LumaSpection thermal imaging product family. With its high-quality video this new mobile IR camera system helps plant operators safely, quickly, and accurately identify process abnormalities before they grow into problems that can lead to unplanned outages.
"BoilerSpection-IM is designed specifically to be a critical tool to analyze and verify the effects of process and equipment changes," says Lenny Shaver, Director of Solutions and Software for LumaSense Technologies. "The system helps plant operators identify tube leaks, guide cleaning processes, and tune the combustion."
The LumaSense solution utilizes a 3.9-µm (micrometre) infrared wavelength and unique filtering to safely see through combustion flames and clearly image the interior of coal fired boilers. This new addition to the LumaSpection product family includes a BoilerSpection-IM camera with a choice of an 18" or 24" lens for optimal matching of the solution to an operator's specific plant needs. Available accessories include wireless displays with digital recording and a comfortable battery backpack.
This BoilerSpection-IM thermal imaging system provides the following features: detection of pinpoint issues before they grow into problems (shorter life cycles and unplanned outages), inspect buildup of ash and slag, tune combustion and manage fuel switching, safe monitoring at full load, one person operation, industry leading image quality, wireless digital video recording (DVR), robust optics (without cooling for most inspections). Typical applications of the mobile infrared camera system for boiler tube and furnace inspection are inspecting for slag and clinkers on superheat pendants in e. g. power boiler burning PRB coal, characterizing shape and length of burner fuel mixing and imaging coal stream from wall fired burner. Operators can survey the furnace to identify tube leaks, guide cleaning maneuvers, and tune the combustion. BoilerSpection-IM is also a critical tool to analyze and verify the effects of process and equipment changes.
BoilerSpection-IM is thus a comprehensive solution including all the components required for a user to be recording images in only minutes with wireless digital video recording.
