Infrared Thermography Applications Overview


Thermal imaging has evolved into one of the most valuable diagnostic tools for Predictive Maintenance. By detecting anomalies often invisible to the naked eye, thermography allows corrective action to be taken before costly system failures occur.

Thermography can be applied in any situation where a problem or condition can reveal itself by means of a thermal difference. For many situations, this is quite easy to apply; a thermal condition can be seen because the process involves release of thermal energy.

Benefit of Infrared Thermography

  • Significantly reduce unscheduled power outages
  • Detect problems quickly, without interrupting service
  • Assess priorities for corrective action
  • Minimize preventive maintenance and troubleshooting time
  • Comply with insurance company requirements
  • Check for defective equipment while still under manufacturer warranty
  • Increase reliability and productivity for the entire operation
