The BoilerSpection™ SD system provides continuous, real-time, through-flame imaging and can withstand harsh conditions. It includes state-of-the-art optics, an infrared camera, an auto-retraction device, networking components, and software to control the system remotely.

The included LumaSpec™ RT software is a powerful tool for analysis and historical trending, outputs to automation and DCS, and a real-time webserver to broadcast images over the plant’s network. Additionally, Advanced Energy offers commission services, technical support, and preventative maintenance.


  • Capture lost boiler capacity by reducing cleaning frequencies
  • Increase efficiency by improving heat transfer with precise knowledge of slag and ash build-up
  • Lower maintenance costs by optimizing cleaning and identifying large deposits (clinkers) before they cause damage to boiler tubes
  • Optimize fuel switching strategies by directly and accurately measuring ash rate and uniformity as fuel changes
  • Manage combustion by tracking uniformity of ash deposits


  • Infrared imaging camera with a cooled borescope lens
  • Automatic retraction system
  • Mounting hardware
  • Network software system integrated into the plant's DCS
  • Full-service field installation and maintenance
