Infrared thermography is much more than just “point and shoot”. It takes a trained professional to identify a potential costly and catastrophic problem. PMT professionals are trained to identify and adjust for emissivity, spot size ratio, correct range/distance and proper temperature scale in order to produce and accurate reading.
Infrared readings can help identify unsafe hot spots on equipment, unseen bearing wear, and misalignment. Infrared inspections provide a way to view electrical, mechanical and building systems and abnormal hot or cool areas. Equipment failure is preceded by a period of increasing heat. Identifying programs and planning repairs results in fewer “panic” situations or safety issues.
Infrared Thermography Benefits
- A first class algorithm simplifies the visual identification of equipment failures like never before.
- Fewer interruptions while in operation.
- Equipment problems identified and fixed before they fail and damage the machine.
- Predict machine problems to plan repairs and avoid emergency rush equipment orders.
