Infrared thermography is defined as the process of acquisition and analysis of thermal information from non-contact thermal imaging devices.
All objects at temperatures above absolute zero radiate heat, and by use of an infrared camera, this heat can be "seen", recorded and analyzed.
Varner Engineering and Manufacturing Services uses the latest FLIR Systems ThermaCAM equipment. FLIR is a world leader in infrared imaging systems.
We can assist you in your predictive maintenance of mechanical, electrical and process equipment, building system integrity and infrastructure diagnostics. We can establish baseline conditions for new equipment and assess the current state of existing equipment. This real-time inspection is done during operating conditions and when systems are under normal loading. In most cases, there is no need to shut down equipment for this inspection, because this there is no physical contact with the equipment.
Experience has shown that thermographic imaging can find problems before they reach catastrophic proportions, saving you time and money.
Images are recorded and analyzed. A report of findings can be prepared for historical record.
