the six application areas of Infrared thermal imaging cameras


An infrared thermal imaging camera is a device that uses infrared thermal imaging technology to detect the infrared radiation of the target and uses signal processing, photoelectric conversion, and other means to convert the image of the temperature distribution of the target into a visible image. It can achieve the goal of quickly confirming the problem in a variety of environments, and it is welcomed by many application fields. The following are the six application areas of Infrared thermal imaging cameras.

Power Industry

At present, the electric power industry is the industry with the most applications of civilian infrared thermal imaging equipment. As the most efficient and mature non-contact detection method, infrared temperature cameras can greatly improve the progress of obtaining temperature or physical quantities, and increase the reliability of power supply equipment. Further improvements have been made. Infrared thermal imaging equipment plays a very important role in exploring the process of intelligence and super-automation in the electric power industry.

Building Industry

As a pre-maintenance diagnostic technology, thermal temperature cameras are equally important to the construction industry. Use this non-destructive diagnostic method, even for thermal defects.

For example, missing insulation materials, air leakage, dampness, and thermal bridges, etc. These faults can be found by measuring the surface temperature through infrared thermal images. It can not only improve the work efficiency of construction enterprises but also reduce costs.

Medical industry

Humans are warm-blooded animals that can maintain a certain value of body temperature. Therefore, the human body is a natural source of infrared radiation. When sickness occurs, the body's thermal balance will be destroyed. Accurately measuring changes in human body temperature is an important indicator for the clinical diagnosis of diseases. Thermal imaging cameras can accurately display and record the temperature distribution of the human body for further pathological analysis.

Petrochemical industry

In the petrochemical production process, the operation of much important equipment is carried out under high temperature and high-pressure conditions, which is potentially dangerous. Therefore, an online inspection of the production process is very important. Using an infrared thermal imaging camera, it can quickly detect the temperature changes of the product conveying pipeline, insulation materials, and various reaction furnaces, and the two-dimensional temperature distribution on the surface of the equipment and materials obtained from the detection, analysis, and processing.

Port security

In port and waterway applications, infrared thermal imaging cameras can detect the number of ships passing by, and the data is accurate. In addition, ordinary VTS systems are susceptible to waves, thick fog, and heavy rain at night, and it is very difficult to realize the area detection function on the water surface. Thermal imaging can make up for the shortcomings of this kind of equipment and provide the possibility to realize such applications, With the help of thermal imaging to sense temperature, determine the position, speed, number, and other information of the ship. It can also pre-assess faults, including high and low voltage equipment at the port, compressors, and other electromechanical equipment.

Security field

Since the temperature sensor camera is an imaging device that reflects the surface temperature of an object, when personnel is patrolled with an infrared thermal imager, it is possible to avoid missed, is-checked and over-inspected situations. In addition, in the field of security, infrared thermal imaging equipment can also be used as an effective fire alarm device. We know that in large areas of forest, hidden fires are often not accurately judged by drones. Thermal imaging cameras can quickly and effectively detect these hidden fires, and accurately determine the location and scope of the fire, and find the fire point through the smoke. Prevent and extinguish as early as possible.
