Paper Abstract

Near infrared (NIR) thermal imaging using Si CCD cameras is a cost-effective technique for generating thermographs of hot objects having temperatures above 350 degree(s)C. The relatively low cost and the favorable performance of the technique makes it the preferred thermal imaging technology for solving many measurement problems in the steel industry. In recent years, a number of systems have been developed by BHP Research and installed within BHP's steelworks to fulfill various measurement tasks. This paper provides an overview of the technique together with a description of several industrial applications that BHP Research has developed.
