What is infrared thermography?

All objects emit heat. Infrared thermography uses an infrared radiometer (camera) to see infrared heat waves and measure their temperature. The lowest temperature the human eye can visually detect is approx. 500 deg. Celcius. Temperatures cooler than that are emitted as infrared waves. An infrared camera detects temperatures in this lower range and produces colorized images which enable us to see the temperature variations in the image.
Thermography provides a safe and fast way to inspect the condition of a facility's electrical, mechanical, and structural integrity. It has been widely recognized as an indispensable tool in preventive maintenance.
