Infrared thermal imaging is used in a large variety of applications, but especially in those dealing with combustions. Most combustion gases selectively absorb/emit infrared radiation over a very narrow spectral range, so spectral filters are used to estimate these parameters and provide selectivity of the combustion gases’ chemical nature. Telops developed a time-resolved multispectral to characterize combustion experiments, and measure temperature profiles. This application note illustrates how the Telops’ MS-IR MW was used to calculate the combustion profile of a lit candle.
