Thermal imaging or thermography, with help from a thermal camera, detects heat patterns or temperature changes in objects. These changes allow the user of the infra-red camera to discover problems prior to costly downtime. Thermal imaging can also be used to monitor developing problems, so maintenance can be scheduled during a planned downtime or when budget is available.

The Infra-red Camera As A First Line Of Defence

The thermal imaging camera is often referred to as the first defence in preventative or predictive maintenance programmes and building restoration or remediation projects.
