Maybe you’re already convinced that a thermal imager will help you speed up troubleshooting and preventive maintenance, but you still need to convince your manager to add it to your bag of tricks. One easy way to do that is to consider all the ways you can use an infrared camera, including:
Electrical and Power distribution
Troubleshooting and maintaining electrical panels, and conductorsMonitoring substations and switchgearCommissioning new installations by documenting the condition at the time of acceptanceInspecting and monitoring power generation components
Inspecting and troubleshooting motors, drives, and bearingsFinding pipe blockages or leaksAssessing tank levels from a distanceIdentifying circuit board hot spots at the design stage
Energy and environmental
Detecting heat loss or gain throughout your HVAC systemLocating moisture in your building envelopeConducting residential and commercial building energy audits
This list is just the beginning. Infrared camera applications are limited only by your imagination. From identifying problems that need fixing to avoid shutdowns, to identifying building issues so leaks can be repaired and energy efficiency improvements made, many uses of your thermal camera can provide a substantial return on investment (ROI).
