What is Thermology?
Thermographic cameras detect radiation in the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum and produce images of that radiation, called thermograms. Since infrared radiation is emitted by all objects based on their temperatures, according to the black body radiation law, thermography makes it possible to "see" one's environment with or without visible illumination. The amount of radiation emitted by an object increases with temperature, therefore thermography allows one to see variations in temperature. When viewed by thermographic camera, warm objects stand out well against cooler backgrounds; humans and other heat sources become easily visible against the environment, day or night. As a result, thermography's extensive use can historically be ascribed to the military and security services This technology is now being extensively used in industry for many different applications and maintenance.
How can help your business?
Temperature changes can indicate problems in many everyday applications and a thermal imager makes it quick and easy to visually check surface temperatures. Often problems can be discovered before the item malfunctions and causes a breakdown which stops production.
This allows planned time out with production to be set aside for preventative maintenance, inspection and testing.
Such preventative actions are important because when a critical system fails, it inevitably increases costs, requires the reallocation of workers and material, reduces productivity and, if not corrected, can threaten corporate profit-ability and, possibly, the well being of employees, customers and/or clients.

Thermal images are an easy way to identify apparent
temperature differences in many different applications.
- Detecting loose or corroded electrical connections
- Electrical unbalance and overloads
- Electric motors
- Industrial gearboxes
- Bearings and moving components
- Monitoring transformers
- Examining levels of tanks and vessels
- Moisture in buildings and energy waste in buildings
- Faulty under floor heating systems
Analysis & Reporting Software
This powerful software allows us to create reports on the component(s) imaged which allows advanced analysis by the customer. It is possible to display the temperature at any given point on the image. This can be an average/max/min of single points or objects, areas, etc. (there is 76,800 single individual points in one IR photo)
IR-Fusion technology simultaneously captures pixel-for-pixel
infrared and visible light images and allows full image optimization.
This allows to us to create a image that is blended with the IR image to allow very accurate analysis of the component. It is possible to only highlight the “problem area” in IR on the photo. This allows for easy identification and analysis of the images.
Using IR-Fusion technology allows very accurate analysis of
