Flare Stack Monitoring Using Thermal Imaging Technology

Register to learn how to select the most suitable flare stack monitoring system for a variety of applications and explain some of their unique advantages.

Originally presented: December 3, 2020
Duration: 1 hour
Presented by:


Infrared (IR) thermal imaging provides the most accurate and reliable way to monitor a flare stack. An IR camera such as AMETEK Land's flare stack monitoring imager produces high-resolution thermal images of any target, from any distance.

This webinar presents in-depth information on how to select a flare stack monitoring system, and will review some unique advantages of these systems. It will include a specific focus on AMETEK Land's turnkey thermal imaging hardware and software package to provide the most effective, cost-efficient, and safe method of monitoring main flares and pilot flares.

Key Takeaways

  • Understand how flare monitoring using infrared thermal imaging cameras provides the most effective means of determining main flare and pilot flare status
  • See how advanced software produces clear images, automatic alarms, and video and temperature archives
  • Discover why a good understanding of thermal imaging and hazardous area technology is required when specifying a new system
