Abstract

Infrared (IR) cameras have a long history in the industrial world, from security / surveillance to predictive maintenance applications in electrical and mechanical environments. IR camera manufacturers continue to push the limit of this unique technology through creative techniques to focus on various wavelengths within the electromagnetic spectrum. Due to physical properties, certain solids and gases can go from transparent to opaque when viewed through the lens of these specialized infrared cameras, allowing operators to now see the “unseen.” This paper and presentation will go through how infrared cameras used specifically for gas detection are engineered and how they positively affect the industries they are beginning to shape.
