Paper Abstract

This paper presents new procedures and a wide spectrum of experimental results based on two-dimensional distributions of the dynamic features of various IR signals captured through inspection ports of several process furnaces. All analyses were made over a few seconds using the same set of 6 narrow band filters to evaluate sequences of IR thermographic images of furnace walls, tube skins, flame and combustion products . The digital (on-line) version of this paper contains samples of these videos. The final results provide samples of quantitative descriptions, which present a more complete, often new, information about the symmetry and other properties of the combustion processes This was possible due to minor modifications to the IR camera.
