Advanced Thermal Infrared Imaging for Fire Research Applications

Thermal infrared imaging is a powerful tool for investigation flame dynamics in fire research applications. Depending on the type of information being sought in a combustion experiment, spatial resolution, spectral resolution, or thermal dynamic range can be crucial to elucidating certain properties of the burning material or the flame itself. Telops offers a range of infrared cameras to address these various needs. A multispectral camera equipped with a fast-spinning filter wheel can be used to detect gaseous combustion products using bandpass filters tuned to the spectral emission features of the target species. A super high-definition camera with a spatial resolution of 1920 X 1536 pixels can provide extremely fine detail in the image of the flame. For both types of cameras, the Telops unique global radiometric calibration allows automatic exposure control (AEC) to be used during data collection to minimize pixel saturation, even during very dynamic thermal events. Recent experiments will be presented to illustrate these capabilities and more. Anyone working in the field of fire or combustion research will benefit from learning about these advancements in infrared thermal imaging.
