Infrared Thermography

What is Infrared Thermography?

Infrared Thermography enables companies to reduce the risk of unscheduled downtime, increase asset availability and up-time, save money, conserve energy, ensure quality and improve safety. With thermal imaging you can “see” and “measure” thermal energy emitted from an object.

Unlike visible light, in the infrared world, everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. Thermal images or thermograms are visual displays of the amount of infrared energy emitted, transmitted and reflected by an object. Because there are multiple sources of the infrared energy, it is difficult to get an accurate temperature of an object using this method without proper training, camera setup and knowledge of infrared technology pitfalls.


Infrared has many uses within residential, commercial and industrial environments. Infrared cameras have become in- expensive and easy to operate. The uses of this technology covers a broad range of applications that can be used to identify, verify and confirm a particular finding or problem.

Benefits and Uses

  • Can be used indoors or outdoors, day or night
  • Identify potentially hazardous issues from a distance
  • Prioritize findings based on temperature, knowledge of system operation, manufacturer setpoints and alarms
  • Verify installation of new equipment or repairs were done correctly
  • Energy loss from slipping belts to missing insulation
  • Pest infestation and moisture intrusion
  • Verification of inventory levels
  • Surveillance / Animal control
  • Veterinarian / Search and Rescue
  • Improper product temperature or fluid flow
  • Missing or damaged refractory in high temperature applications
