Lingering unobserved for days or even weeks, hotspots can burst suddenly into flames. This can occur in engine rooms, refineries, pumps, coal piles, etc. These hotspots cannot be seen by the naked eye. Thus, thermal imaging has become a vital tool in the marine and oil and gas industries but also in industrial environments. The Flare & Hotspot Ultimo offers a tool in prevention and maintenance; thermal imaging and heat signatures are made visible and appropriate actions can be taken to avert disaster.
Flare stacks require constant monitoring for the presence of a flame and to ensure that proper combustion has taken place. The Flare & Hotspot Ultimo camera combines thermal and optical imaging for effective flare monitoring. This camera offers reliability and cost effectiveness and can be mounted in an accessible location. What is more, when the operator sees that optimal flame colour and height have been achieved, they can determine whether prime combustion has been reached. This determination can lead to reduced gas discharge and minimization of CO2 emissions.
The Flare and Hotspot Ultimo camera with dual imaging is an all-in-one solution for hotspot detection and flare monitoring. Not only can it be adapted to suit the user’s needs, it communicates intelligently with the control room to notify the operator immediately if anything has gone amiss. This dual imaging camera provides thermal analytics and full-colour HD monitoring in one housing.
