About the course
IR Inspection of Petrochemical Facilities is a 21-hour theory and application course for the use of thermal imaging to locate and evaluate problems in oil and chemical processing plants. • • Topics covered include electrical distribution equipment, mechanical systems, high-temperature processing equipment, and infrared inspection of boiler and heater tubes. This is a non-certification course focused on a single application. Course completion may be applied to training requirements for thermographer certification. The course covers infrared theory, heat transfer concepts, equipment operation and selection, standards compliance, image analysis, and report generation.

Self-directed learning activities are provided to help students gain practical experience; however, one need not have a camera to successfully complete the course.
