Oil Line Build-up

Infrared Thermography or IR imaging scanning can observe conditions on power systems, refractory insulation problems, determine build up in process vessels, building envelopes, heat loss in homes. IR scanning is great for developing a PMP on boiler systems and other frequent equipment needing observations. Infrared excels to look at in-floor heating prior to concrete coring or cutting. IR also detects for electrical panels and power supply units such as bearings in motors heat signatures We are located in the Edmonton Area and cover all video inspection work in Western Canada, Alberta and the Oil Sands in Fort McMurray.

Although it can be difficult to tell what the thickness of build-up is in process lines such as in this sales oil line, the areas of restriction can be located and identified. Trending these areas with periodic thermal scans provides valuable information about the progression of build-up. In this image, there is a clear trough cut through the build-up by the oil as it makes its own path along the underside of the bend.
