Applications with thermographic cameras

Opsporen persluchtlekkages
With compressed air leak detection with an acoustic camera, factories can detect pressurized leaks in compressed air systems more safely and up to 10 times faster than with point scan methods.
visualize potentially hazardous gases
The FLIR GF77 is a compact uncooled gas detection camera which is suited for detecting and visualising potentially harmful gasses in real-time with for example energy companies, oil- and gas facilities, chemical/ production facilities, the food and beverage industry, the agriculture, etc.
deployment of drones in the fire department
The DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced is a compact drone with an integrated thermal imaging camera suited for visualizing big areas during fires in forests and cities.
Si 124 application
An industrial acoustic imaging camera from FLIR, working via ultrasonic sounds, is suited for real-time visualization of potential leaks in compressed air systems.

Knowledge base on gas detection and thermal imaging cameras

Thermography infrared radiation
Infrared radiation is not observable with the unaided eye. However by using thermal vision cameras it becomes possible to visualize the invisible radiation in applications with gasses, hotspots, 24/7 operations, etc.
Condition monitoring
Stopping machines results for a company in much unnecessary downtime and costs. Continuously monitoring conditions with thermal imaging cameras for example in machine factories and in the steel-industry ensures that machines will last longer, that disruptions are prevented and that costs are saved.
optical gas imaging
Gas leaks can pose a threat for the safety of employees and for the efficiency of your business processes. With the FLIR gas detection (thermal) cameras you are able to visualize hundreds of invisible gasses rapidly, easily and safely.

What is thermography? In short

Thermography, also known as thermal imaging or infrared thermography, is a technology that uses infrared radiation to create images of temperature variations on the surface of objects or within a given environment. It is based on the principle that all objects emit infrared radiation (heat) in proportion to their temperature.

Here's how thermography works:

  1. Infrared camera: A thermographic camera, or thermal camera, is used to capture the infrared radiation emitted by objects. These cameras are equipped with special sensors that can detect the heat signature of objects in the form of thermal patterns.

  2. Temperature variation: Objects at different temperatures emit different levels of infrared radiation. Warmer objects emit more, while cooler objects emit less. Thermography is used to detect and visualize these temperature differences.

  3. Image processing: The thermal camera captures infrared radiation and converts it into a visible image or video, with different colors or shades representing different temperatures. Generally, warmer areas appear as lighter colors (such as white or yellow), while cooler areas appear as darker colors (such as blue or black).

Thermography has a wide range of applications in various fields, including:

  1. Building inspections: In construction and maintenance, thermography can identify areas of heat loss, insulation problems and electrical faults.

  2. Medical imaging: In the medical field, thermography is used for breast cancer screenings and to identify areas of inflammation or abnormal blood flow.

  3. Electrical inspections: Thermographic inspections of electrical systems can detect overheated components, which helps prevent electrical fires.

  4. Mechanical inspections: It is used to monitor the temperature of mechanical equipment, such as bearings, to detect signs of wear.

  5. Industrial processes: In manufacturing and industrial environments, thermography helps monitor process temperatures and detect defects.

  6. Environmental and wildlife monitoring: Thermography is used to study and monitor animal behavior and health, and to monitor heat variations in the environment.

  7. Security: Infrared cameras are used for surveillance and security to detect intruders, especially in low light conditions.

Thermography is a valuable tool for non-contact temperature measurement and anomaly detection, making it useful in a wide range of applications where temperature variations are critical for understanding and diagnosing problems.
