Despite a negative impact on the natural environment, coal still represents 27% of global energy consumption. To minimize emissions into the atmosphere from burning coal, sophisticated combustion technologies are used that require constant maintenance to their burners’ fuel-to-air ratio. Flame imagery is the primary source of data for those responsible for maintaining combustion at ideal conditions. Monitoring flames with cameras means there is no delay in obtaining results, as there is with analysis of flue gases. This method is also non-invasive, and flame information captured by cameras has controlled spatial resolution.
