FORTHCOMING WEBINAR - Monitoring Critical Assets in Refineries and Petrochemical Plants using Advanced Thermal Imaging

Tuesday, October 4, 2022

James Cross - Upcoming Blog!

Join our webinar on 20th October 2022 at 2PM BST and learn how to monitor critical assets using the latest thermal imaging technology and software, to provide early detection of potential issues, reducing the likelihood of serious accidents.

Refineries and petrochemical plants contain a large number of critical high temperature assets situated in hazardous areas. Monitoring these assets using the latest thermal imaging technology and software provides early detection of potential issues, reducing the likelihood of serious incidents and permitting continuous optimization and predictive maintenance practices. 

AMETEK Land has developed a suite of tools to assist producers with the inspection and optimization of a range of critical assets, focusing on high temperature accuracy, image clarity, resolution, and usability in harsh environments.

Applications to be discussed include:

  • Gasifier, reactor, and furnace shell temperature monitoring
  • Header, subheader, critical pipework monitoring
  • Flammable material monitoring (e.g. petroleum coke and sulfur)

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn about the types of high temperature critical assets in refineries and petrochemical facilities
  • Increase understanding of infrared temperature technology
  • Improve reliability and maintenance practices with practical advice based on decades of experience in temperature measurement and thermal imaging
