Materials for increasing emissivity

September 16, 2016By Bob BerryGeneral, Training

The materials below are some that I would normally recommend for increasing the emissivity of materials. Scotch 33 Tape Consistent emissivity of 0.95 Glyptal Enamel Paint Electrically insulating paint Dye Penetrant Developer  This is easily applied and removed. It has a very high emissivity Paints, various paints can be used Some deodorants can be used, usually ones with alumina … Read More

What material has the best emissivity?

August 22, 2016By Bob BerryTraining

  Recent I was asked this “What material has the best emissivity?”. It is a tricky question to answer as first I need to figure out what is meant by “best”. Best could mean, best highest, or best lowest. Emissivity it not just a material property, it is affected by other factors. The object with the highest … Read More

What emissivity setting should I use?

August 15, 2016By Bob BerryTraining

  I have been asked the following question; “What emissivity setting should I enter in my camera when carrying out a CM survey?” Of course this is a bit subjective, and can be an individual choice, but there are a few different options that people normally use. I have to say that if we need … Read More

What does high emissivity mean?

July 25, 2016By Bob BerryTraining

To put it simply, a high emissivity object is better able to radiate energy than a low emissivity object. A blackbody would have an emissivity of 1, meaning that it would emit 100% efficiently. Lower emissivity objects would be less efficient emitters. An object with an emissivity of 0.6 would emit 60% of the energy … Read More
