Infrared thermography is the process of using a thermal imager to detect radiation (heat) coming from an object, converting it to temperature and displaying an image of the temperature distribution.

When the right steps are taken, and with a trained professional this does not have to happen. Putting a routine plan in place well ahead of time will provide accurate readings and could potentially save on production loss and ensure safety.
Infrared thermography is a non-invasive process that can detect overheated and overloaded components before they actually break down and cause facility downtime. They are also useful for monitoring high-temperature industrial heaters, boilers, and furnaces.
- conveyor belts
- process valve
- storage tanks
According to MAINWORLD these are some of the top Advantages to using thermal imaging:
- It is a non-contact type technique
- Fast, reliable & accurate output
- A large surface area can be scanned in a very short time
- Presented in visual & digital form
- Data can be stored for later image processing and analysis
- Requires very little skill for monitoring (but not for evaluation, see disadvantages)
- Due to the mobility of modern IR cameras they can be made available at any time and at any place
