Why use a thermal Camera?
Using an infrared Thermal Camera or Imager, for Infrared thermography gives you a capability to detect subtle problems in hardware before they result in failures. Hardware can be industrial, commercial or domestic and range from such things as large electrical substations down to domestic appliance components or PCBs. It is often the case that potential problems can be identified using thermography before other symptoms such as noise or vibration raise their head. This gives a significant advantage in heading potential downtime or energy waste off at the pass. In building applications a thermal imager will give outstanding visual indication of heat loss through poor insulation and even spot damp in ceilings and walls before a visible sign can be seen with the naked eye.
In all of these cases, a thermal camera can speed up the identification and diagnosis of any issue and avoid or reduce any equipment/ machinery/ circuit downtime minimise damage to structures and contents. Infrared thermography offers a variety of advantages, because it can be used for:
- Most types of electrical and mechanical equipment
- They collect data from a safe distance so useful within a hazardous environment
- They can scan large areas such as walls, ceilings, and roofs quickly
- Data can be gathered without the need to turn equipment off or disrupting production
- Regular scans of equipment or buildings can build up a picture of patterns and enable you to quickly identify irregularities in specific locations and detect a problem before failure.
