Thermography Technicians use infrared tools to monitor fixed equipment at the BP Cherry Point Refinery. These tools include both long and short wavelength infrared cameras, spectrum analyzers, pyrometers, blackbodies, and contact measurement instruments. The goal is to asses fixed equipment health by establishing thermal baselines and comparing them on a quarterly basis to identify thermal anomalies and the rate of change of these anomalies. Typical equipment to be monitored, but not limited to, includes fired heaters, air coolers, heat exchangers, refractory lined piping, storage tanks, and electrical distribution substations.
