  • Making Your Own Blackbody Simulator
    Blackbody simulators are essential tools for checking the calibration of infrared imagers and radiometers. One alternative to purchasing a blackbody simulator is to make your own.
  • Standards for Infrared Thermography
    As thermography has matured, standards have appeared governing the conduct of infrared inspections and the proper use of infrared test equipment. With this Tip, we examine the importance of standards to practicing thermographers.
  • Infrared Inspections of Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters
    Excess heating is often a sure sign of defective electrical equipment; however, the absence of heat can also be a sign of component failure. In this Tip, we demonstrate how thermal imaging may be used to detect defective Arc Fault Circuit […]
  • Art to Science: Changing Infrared 180 Degrees
    Infrared (IR) thermometry has been used for forty years to monitor tube metal temperatures in refining and chemical furnaces. The application of IR thermometry has often been characterized as highly operator dependent and therefore developed a very […]
  • Combining IR and Ultrasound for Steam Trap Testing
    In order to increase the accuracy of thermographic inspections of steam traps, contact ultrasonic testing should be used as well as infrared imaging. Contact ultrasonics are much more sensitive to trap failures than temperature measurement alone.
