high temperature industrial furnace applications

      The ThermaCAM P50F is exclusively designed for high temperature
industrial furnace applications. These cameras are ideal for monitoring
all types of furnaces, heaters and boilers, particularly in the chemical, petrochemical and utility industries.


Designed exclusively to see through flames in all types of
gas-fired furnaces, chemical heaters, coal-fired boilers

See through flames
      The P50F features uncooled microbolometer sensor technology, meaning the camera is ready to use in less than 1 minute. With
virtually no cool down time required, this means you can get to work faster and have less waiting time standing next to extremely
hot heaters. Custom-built to see through flames, the P50F also features a detachable heat-shield designed to reflect heat away from
the camera and camera operator, providing increased protection.

Measure temperatures on more than one single spot
      Thermocouples can only provide a temperature reading on one spot, whereas the P50F infrared camera provides temperature
readings across the entire surface of yourheater/boiler/furnace - a massive new benefit. Plus, the P50F helps you to inspect faster,
work safer and avert unscheduled shutdowns and, worse, catastrophic failures.
      You can even use the burst recording feature to record and save a series of images of the inner workings of your heater/
boiler/furnace while its running.

See potential coking, scaling and slag build-up on a thermal image
      Coking, scaling and slag build-up are well-known problems and the P50F displays clear and precise thermal images and
temperature measurements - providing you with tools, readings and trend data to help you spot potential problems faster
and easier than ever before.

This infrared image clearly shows several areas of coking and overheating that are adjacent to, but not indicated by the tube skin thermocouples. Coking is seen on full tubes 2, 4, and 6 from the left.

This thermal image shows an overview of the roof tubes in a typical refinery heater.
A small area of coking/overheating can be seen on one of the vertical, back-wall tubes (4th vertical tube from the left, near the top).

This infrared image identifies patchy external tube scaling that is often incorrectly identified
as internal coking.
