Ice valve is a unique kind of micro valve without any moving elements and leakage. While in its operational process, appropriate control on the valve depends on well knowing the working statues of the valve system. In order to develop a quick and convenient method for guiding the operation of the ice valve, this paper is dedicated to establish a non-contact image way for monitoring the ice valve during controlling the micro fluid. The far-infrared thermal imaging system was adopted to detect and map the surface temperature distribution of the ice valve, which consequently could help achieve the non-contact monitoring of the ice valve.
