Paper Abstract

The quantification of industrial heat loss is of increasing importance because of the enormous amount of energy consumed by process industries, and the subsequent high cost of wasted energy. Thermography provides a relatively inexpensive technique for gathering the necessary data to determine heat loss. When other relevant data is collected at the time of the survey and simple data processing techniques are applied, the results can be quantified to establish a priority rating of energy-saving projects. Simple calibration techniques can be used to provide accurate figures on annual heat loss. These estimates are particularly useful if cost benefit (or return on investment) information is desired.
