Fluke Thermal Imaging Application Notes and Case Studies

Fluke Thermal Imagers for Electrical / Mechanical  |  Fluke Industrial Thermal Imagers

Thermal Imaging Inspecting Bearings

Inspecting Bearings »

Many predictive maintenance (PdM) programs use thermography to monitor the apparent temperatures of operational equipment, using the heat values to detect and avoid equipment loss.
 
thermal imaging Inspecting Steam Systems

Inspecting Steam Systems »

A sensible approach to a steam system management program is to establish repair priorities based on safety, steam/energy loss, and possible impact on production and quality loss.
 
thermal imaging Inspecting Electric Motors

Inspecting Electric Motors »

Using a handheld thermal imager, you can capture infrared temperature measurements of a motor's temperature profile as a two dimensional image.
 
thermal imaging Loose or Corroded Electrical Connections

Loose or Corroded Electrical Connections »

Thermal images of electrical systems can indicate the operating condition of the equipment in those systems.
 
thermal imaging Tests and Measurements for Electrical Fire Prevention

Tests and Measurements for Electrical Fire Prevention »

This article reviews the fundamental causes of overheating, as well as, the tests and tools commonly used to uncover overheating problems.
 
thermal imaging Inspecting Furnaces and Boilers

Inspecting Furnaces and Boilers »

In most cases, if only because of their high operating temperatures and their capacity to cause injury or death as a result of some failures, furnaces and boilers should be included in predictive maintenance (PdM) programs that monitor their condition while they operate.
 
thermal imaging Pumps, Fans and Compressors

Pumps, Fans and Compressors »

While many people in the power generation industry are familiar with annual infrared thermography surveys as part of PdM, the coal plant in this case study uses a thermal imager year round. There are two differences in their approach.
 
thermal imaging HVAC Air Leakage Inspections

HVAC Air Leakage Inspections »

In energy audits of homes and other buildings, technicians use blower doors in conjunction with thermal imagers. The blowers create positive or negative pressures within interior envelopes, making leaks much more apparent in thermal images.
