The VP-12-IR’s 12mm viewing area was designed for tight areas or for use with infrared (IR) cameras with smaller, wider angle lens systems.
Infrared (IR) thermography has never been a simple thing. Emissivity, reflections and transmission rates for IR windows can cause confusion and frustration without the proper knowledge, experience, training and skill. And those four qualities are exactly what the American Society for Non-Destructive Testing (ASNT) defines as certification. This paper from IRISS is intended to simplify the complex subject of IR window transmission.
Powders can be considered as a type of granular material, but have a defining characteristic of consisting of relatively fine particles. This difference is a fundamental and important one that results in individual powders exhibiting far greater variability in bulk density than products containing larger granules. This is especially true of fine powders.
Calibration and the maintenance of process site instrumentation is vital for a number of reasons, such as to ensure that production output is achieved within set quality parameters and to meet regulatory requirements. This guide discusses collecting the data, calibration software, the types of software, and also provides information on GE Measurement & Control’s software management solution.
In this technical article, IRISS provides a range of infrared window installation hints and tips, including the following: preparing your infrared targets; treating bare metal surfaces; and ensuring you have extra cutting tools.
This article addresses the commonly posed question: ’There is plenty of choice of thermal imaging cameras for R&D and scientific applications, for which applications should I use a cooled or an uncooled system?’
In this article, IRISS provides a range of infrared window installation hints and tips, including the following: (1) take plenty of high-quality digital images; (2) know your infrared camera’s minimum focus distance; and (3) check the operation of the infrared window before energising the equipment.
Between 70 and 80 per cent of all hydraulic failures, which can lead to machinery failure, can be traced back to contaminated oil, according to drives and controls manufacturer Bosch Rexroth.
Titan Enterprises has published an online article that reviews the evolving role of different flowmeter technologies in measuring injection additives in petrochemical processes.
