Thermal Imaging

What makes thermography so useful?

There are 3 things that make infrared thermal imaging especially useful:

  • It is non-contact leak detection and uses remote detecting – Thermography does not disturb the target or interrupt upon it in any way.
  • It is two dimensional leak detection– Assessments between areas on the target are possible: the technician can measure at two points or a hundred points in the same image, and then compare them.
  • It is in real time leak detection – Instant action is possible as real time imaging permits for fast scanning of motionless targets.

FLIR T640 and Fluke TiR32 infrared cameras are used for the best possible result.
