|We have mentioned experience and qualifications. Both are essential in carrying out a Thermographic survey correctly. ERIKS have invested time and money in fully training all their operatives to a high standard, so they understand and avoid problems that occur whilst carrying out a survey. |
Even facing an object (Dependant on temperature, surface type, material), your own body heat effects the amount of infrared radiation emitted from the object. Different materials and different surface finishes on the same material emit radiation at different rates. This is why experience and training are essential.
A key benefit of thermography is that it's non-contact and instant. Faults can be identified quickly, without intruding on the object.
This advantage decreases the risks whilst checking live circuits, hot surfaces and potential hazardous substances / equipment.
