Thermography enables us to see and measure heat. Thermography is a nondestructive technique of analyzing the thermal characteristics of an object from its infrared image, captured through a non-contact thermal imaging device. Temperature is one of the first observable parameters that can indicate the condition of operating electrical equipment. Heat is a by-product of all work whether is it electrical, mechanical or chemical. Uncontrolled thermal energy can lead to failure. Thermography helps in temperature detection from the emitted thermal energy of the equipment.
Thermography as a predictive maintenance inspection tool which can help businesses to reduce downtime, cost, prioritize critical areas and establish a requirement for replacement of assets by establishing anomaly/irregularity.
