Question; We have a number of pressure vessels onsite. These are are compressed air tanks and we would like to test them for cracks, damage, sludge and non visible rust etc. None of the vessels have cladding and all are made of mild steel. There are some indoor and some outside so the ambient temperature … Read More
Due to demand we have added a page of recommended books on Thermography here http://thermalvision.ie/thermography/books/ should anyone have any suggestions I am happy to add to this
A level 2 thermographer is someone with a higher degree of training and experience. He understands more about the camera and how it works, and the physics related to thermography. Level 2 thermographer’s are better placed to specify thermography equipment, and to supervise level 1 thermographer’s. Like Level 1 thermographers, Level 2′s should be following … Read More

Email question received; I have some chimney stacks to inspect with thermography. Both stations are thermal coal. One station has two stacks that were built-in 1976-1980. The two stacks are 177 metres high. The other station has one stack and was built-in 1992/93 and is 250 metres high. I have been asked to identify areas of … Read More
Recently I have come across quite a few people that work with low emissivity materials like copper busbar. Generally they are under the impression that so long as they keep away exact temperature measurement then they will be ok. They just stick to looking for thermal gradients. In fact, materials like copper busbar have such a low emissivity … Read More
There are a couple of images below taken with an A6703sc, both images are of a £2 coin, one with a 50mm lens, the other with a 1X microscope lens.
This is an excellent question. Of course it does depend on how far away the object is from the camera. Camera specifications usually give a figure for FOV and IFOV, but seldom quote the MFOV. FOV (Field of View), this refers to everything that the camera can see, as it will depend on the distance to … Read More
