Shows a visual representation of temperatures over large areas for comparison purposes
Can capture thermal images of moving targets in real time
Can identify deteriorating components prior to their failure (i.e. those at higher temperature)
Can measure in hazardous or inaccessible or areas
Can be used to find defects in shafts and other metal parts
Test method is quick and non-destructive
Thermal imaging can be used to great effect to discover bad cable crimp connections or overheating of component parts within industrial panels, before component failure.
Thermography is a non-evasive non-destructive examination of rotating components which can aid in the maintenance programs of all industries.
