Thermal Scanners for Waste Management & Recology
Safer, Faster, Smarter
Help America Restart Smart
Waste management facilities, waste incineration plants, and recology centers for compost pits and landfills are one of the essential establishments that cater to every urban community’s basic needs. Unlike fashion boutiques and leisure-centered businesses, waste management and recology centers cannot close even temporarily during the pandemic. Because of their line of work, waste management technicians are at high risk of catching contagious diseases like the coronavirus. For times like these, thermal scanners for waste management can be the first line of defense. The temperature screening solution can scan workers for fever in a safer and faster way as they come to and leave work. Additionally, thermal scanners can also help to prevent fires and other facility accidents.

What Are Thermal Imaging Cameras?
Thermal Imaging Cameras are able to measure an object’s temperature at high accuracy in real-time. They enable quick detection of elevated skin temperatures. They are capable of discovering and tracking people’s body temperature in crowded public areas. Thermal imaging equipment can also easily be installed and implemented in places such as airports, hospitals, clinics, office buildings, cruise ships, and any large public gathering location.
Benefits of Thermal Cameras for Waste Management & Recology
The person who handles the thermal imaging system is not required to be physically close to the person being evaluated. In fact, the person who handles the thermal imaging system could be in a different area or room.
Scientific studies show that, when used correctly, thermal imaging systems generally measure surface skin temperature accurately. This is very helpful as the fever has been proven to be
one of the most common symptoms of COVID-19.
The thermal imaging system may measure surface skin temperature faster than the typical forehead or oral (mouth) thermometer that requires a close distance or physical contact with the person being evaluated. This makes access and traffic flow faster and smoother.

Thermal Scanners in Action
FLIR Thermal Cameras Help Prevent Fires in Waste FacilitiesThe whole cycle for the storage of waste, through sorting and recycling up to the effective conversion to electricity carries a high risk of fire or self-ignition, causing possible hazards for both personnel and the environment. To counter this, the Czech company Workswell has developed a complete thermal imaging solution, called Waste Bunker Monitor, designed for the continuous inspection of solid waste. For this solution, Workswell makes use of thermal imaging cameras from FLIR Systems. “We have found that the FLIR A315 or FLIR A615 cameras are the best fit for our system. We always determine the number of cameras, their resolution and visual field of view in the function of the smallest detectable temperature difference," comments Jan Kovář, Managing Director at Workswell.
Recycling company uses Hikvision thermal bullet camerasRecycling Lives, a recycling company in the United Kingdom that combines charity work with operations as a scrap metal and waste recycling company, is using Hikvision thermal bullet cameras to prevent fire incidents. The thermal imaging module provides 384x288 resolution, a high sensitivity sensor, and supports contrast adjustment and shutter adjustment in various modes. There are 15 palettes of adjustable color available, and because this is a thermal imaging camera rather than a conventional CCTV device, there’s no need for additional lighting. Recycling Lives has sites across the UK was founded and is run by teams aiming to provide residential accommodation for the homeless by employing them in the recycling business.
