Schlieren imaging is designed to visualize small changes in the refractive index of any transparent media such as air.
When a beam of light passes through a refractive index gradient, it bents or refracts but is invisible to the naked eye. By using suitable imaging methods, such as Schlieren , these deflected rays can be visualized by a normal camera.
In the welding domain, Schlieren imaging can be used e.g. to monitor the protection gas in laser welding process.
Combining Schlieren imaging and Cavitar's CAVILUX laser illumination opens
additional possibilities such as improved accuracy, freezing of any terrestrial motion, and benefiting from polarized light.
Cavitar Z-Type Schlieren system is a turnkey complete solution designed to be up and ready in minutes with minor adjustments to save your valuable time and resources.
Some of the benefits of the Cavitar Schlieren system include clear live views of bright welding processes, optimization of shielding gas flow, simultaneous visualization of molten material, adjustment of sensitivity and direction, and compatibility with different cameras.
