Paper Abstract

As nuclear power generating station management personnel begin to implement infrared thermal analysis programs to monitor selected equipment they are faced with the inter-related problems of acquiring appropriate IR sensing equipment and designing programs which can initially provide them with the thermal data necessary to evaluate selected components. In addition, in order to have a truly useful program they must also provide for later inclusion of additional components and, if possible, retrieval of their historical thermal data as well. This paper briefly highlights some of the desirable features management should consider during the IR equipment evaluation stage, and presents a dual level approach to IR monitoring program design which is flexible enough to allow station management to initiate a complete IR monitoring program focusing on a selected list of components, while recording thermal images of additional components to allow for their later inclusion into the program.
