This paper presents a summary of various applications of pyroelectric vidicons to thermal imaging of operating units in the processing industries. It is not within the scope of the report to provide detailed descriptions of the chemical engineering aspects of the work and the report is confined to a presentation of the range of applications covered and the rationale adopted in the survey work. Applications included heater ducting, boiler plant, rotating kilns, internally insulated reactors, fin fan coolers and insulated road tankers. Almost invariably the work was carried out on running plant. Thermal imaging was used to obtain only qualitative display of variations in surface temperature conditions. Where appropriate actual temperature measurements were obtained by emissivity compensated contact pyrometers.
