Refining / Petrochemical
Temperature monitoring is essential at several key points in refineries and petrochemical plants, to ensure the safety of personnel and to support efficient process control.

The storage and transport of combustible hydrocarbons requires careful monitoring. In addition, the high temperatures involved in hydrocarbon processing industry applications need accurate, reliable and flexible measurement solutions.

AMETEK Land’s flexible thermal imaging systems are industry-proven, meeting hazardous area requirements and delivering high-performance monitoring solutions for your process.  Our decades of experience and expertise provide the accurate temperature measurements you need for safety, emissions compliance, and process control in your key hydrocarbon processing applications.
 
  APPLICATION NOTE
Application Note - Flare Stack MonitoringADVANTAGES OF THERMAL IMAGING FOR EFFECTIVE FLARE STACK MONITORING
Flare stacks are used in the chemical and petrochemical industries to safely dispose of excess gases through combustion. These may be unwanted waste gases, or flammable gases released to prevent unplanned over-pressurising of plant equipment. Simply venting these untreated hydrocarbons into the air creates an environmental hazard. Read More > Watch the Video >
