Equipment Maintenance - Neckstraps
Almost all handheld thermal imagers come equipped with neckstraps as standard equipment. If you utilize the neckstrap supplied with your imager to support or carry your imager, the following tips can help to avoid costly damage caused by an unexpected drop.
Infrared Inspections of Roofs Containing Foam Insulation
You can’t believe everything you hear. This can be especially true when it comes to performing infrared inspections on flat roofs that contain closed cell foam insulation.
Checking IR Equipment Calibration
Equipment calibration can have a significant impact on the accuracy of infrared temperature measurement. In this Tip we discuss a simple technique for checking the accuracy of imaging and non-imaging radiometers.
5 Easy Ways to Reduce Energy Waste with Ultrasound
Did you know that an energy efficient facility can be directly linked to its reliability and success? Are you aware of how important it is to consistently report and document results to generate awareness and effectively reduce your energy usage? What about how important it is to be proactive instead of reactive to prevent problems from happening in the first place? Common sense will have you answer these questions with, “Yes,” but the way you run your facility could be suggesting otherwise.
Maintaining Situational Awareness
Many animals and even some people are credited with having a sixth sense for knowing or anticipating events before they happen. The benefits of this seemingly supernatural power can be enjoyed by applying a discipline known as situational awareness.
Inductive Heating Hotspots
Loose connections, overloading and imbalanced loads cause overheating of components within an electrical system. Depending upon construction and operation of the electrical system, a perplexing and possibly serious condition called inductive heating can cause non-current carrying components to overheat.
Measurement Accuracy Specifications
“A man’s got to know his limitations.” Clint Eastwood popularized this quote in a 1972 film; this sage observation can also be applied to infrared equipment.
A Thermographer’s Magic Marker
An age-old challenge for thermographers is the ability to annotate or mark objects to make them easier to identify in recorded imagery. One possible solution is to mark targets with an ink pen with low emittance ink.
