Tools of the Trade: Thermal Imaging Technology

Tough times have led to cuts in operating budgets for many industrial plants. The message is clear—do more with less! Well, here is an idea that can help you in a number of areas: thermal imaging technology.

Thermal imaging technology can provide information on maintenance issues, potential process improvements and energy losses for any industry. Conducting a thermal imaging survey can reduce maintenance issues such as bearing wear, leaking valves, alignment problems and poorly insulated assets. Proper evaluation of the thermal images will allow identification of critical maintenance activities and efficiency improvement opportunities. Companies that use thermal imaging surveys as a part of their maintenance program save thousands of dollars in energy costs each year by correcting problems detected with this technology.
