LaVision’s FlowBOS cameras visualize and monitor air and heat flows in industrial processes without the need for smoke or seeding particles meaning zero contamination. A simple background imaging technique monitors on-line flows over a wide range of flow scales and flow rates with excellent spatial and temporal resolution.
LaVision offers two FlowBOS camera models for different usage. The FlowBOS SE (Standard Edition) camera is designed for multi-purpose applications and flexible working distances whereas the FlowBOS LD (Large Distance) camera was developed for very large measurement distances and challenging applications with natural moving backgrounds. Both cameras come in an IP44 housing with interchangeable lenses and a detachable tablet for intuitive camera control and an interactive view of the flow.
Visualizing your flow with the FlowBOS camera is as simple as recording a movie: point the flow inspection camera through the flow onto the provided background pattern to reveal flow structure and speed that are not visible by eye.
These extremely versatile camera can be used in a wide range of applications from small scale leak detection, through car interior ventilation, to full room flow behaviour in cleanrooms or for HVAC testing. Because the approach has zero contaminants it is safe to use in all environments and works residue-free.
System setup is fast and straightforward and can be deployed at short notice and supports on-line process control applications.
LaVision’s FlowBOS camera for flow visualization in cleanrooms use an optical active, non-toxic seeding gas avoiding particle contamination. In front of an illuminated background the innovative imaging technique shows exactly the air motion, because the seed gas and air have the same flow properties.
LaVision’s FlowBOS cameras detect directly thermal flows in front of an illuminated background. The innovative imaging method is sensitive to heat Schlieren in air flows without the need of any flow seeding.
