Paper Abstract

Abnormal temperature increases in refinery process equipment are usually indicative of a condition that will eventually result in serious operational problems or equipment failure. Infrared instruments are available that provide both thermal imaging and temperature measurement capabilities. Several examples of the application of infrared thermal imaging in refineries are described. The examples are chosen to show the capabilities of the infrared instruments, the diversity of application, and the techniques required to obtain meaningful information.
