Why Measure Temperature?

Infrared and Temperature Measurement

Finding a problem with an infrared camera is sometimes not enough.  In fact, an infrared camera image alone without accurate temperature measurements says very little about the condition of an electrical connection or worn mechanical part.  Many electrical targets are operating properly at temperatures that are significantly above ambient.  An infrared image without temperature measurement can be misleading because it may visually suggest a problem that does not exist.

Predictive Maintenance and Temperature Measurement

Infrared cameras that incorporate temperature measurement allow predictive maintenance professionals to make well informed judgments about the operating condition of electrical and mechanical targets.  Temperature measurements can be compared with historical operating temperatures, or with infrared readings of similar equipment at the same time, to determine if a significant temperature rise will compromise component reliability or plant safety.  Every maintenance department should incorporate infrared thermal imaging to their list of available tools & services to provide their facility, production operations, boiler operations, process engineering and every other aspect of manufacturing.   https://monroeinfrared.com/infrared-inspections/ir-maintenance-inspections
