Thermal camera studies heat exchange in nuclear reactors

The CEA (Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique) in France has selected a Cedip Infrared Systems' Silver 480M IR camera system to study the thermal processes in gas-cooled nuclear reactors.

The cameras will study high-pressure flows of gas at temperatures ranging from 100-350°C. The temperatures of the pipe walls can as high as 800°C, the thermal processes at these boundaries can determine the stability of the reactor.

The Silver 480M was selected by the CEA as it provided the sensitivity and acquisition speeds necessary for this application.
