Paper Abstract

Thermographic methods and equipment are very useful in detecting energy losses by heat emission in thermoelectric plants; these methods allow the predictive maintenance of such plants and ensure a diminution of operating costs. Classical methods for determination of warmer spots and ares are inefficient and sometimes impossible to achieve, especially in the case of large plants. A global analysis of the areas into which can appear heat leakage was carried out using thermography, the method being independent from the complexity and the placing of plants. The method of thermography allows an easy location of these thermal losses and their qualitative estimation. Experiments were carried out using the LORIS thermovision equipment. The thermal images were processed dedicated software, ThermaGRAM for Windows 95. Some relevant thermal images presented in this paper, also.
