Gain a better understanding of thermography applied to electrical applications including types of faults, failure modes, in-depth discussion of electrical applications plus a number of case studies. Inspection methodologies, analysis techniques and reporting are also covered. Suggested prerequisite: Level 1
An overview of inspecting electrical systems including conditions needed, typical patterns detected and ways to prioritize findings.
The majority of infrared cameras purchased today are used for inspecting electrical systems. While the technology is considered one of the primary test methods for electrical equipment there are limitations with infrared which, if not understood correctly, can be simply misleading or even downright dangerous. This presentation details how to successfully inspect electrical systems, safely and effectively, including conditions needed, typical patterns detected and an understanding of how to prioritize findings.
You’ve located a problem with infrared…but how critical is it? This webcast addresses one of the most common questions (and most difficult to answer) that thermographers have…how to prioritize their findings. Should I just use a temperature-based system where the warmer something is, the higher its repair priority? While an important consideration in reality temperature is only a small part of the entire prioritization equation. Attendees of this webinar will learn that there are a number of other factors to consider when diagnosing the severity of a problem and how to better characterize their findings.

This presentation provides an overview of how to inspect in-plant electrical systems, safely and effectively.
This presentation provides an overview of how to inspect in-plant electrical systems, safely and effectively, including what equipment to consider scanning, the conditions needed, typical patterns detected and considerations for prioritizing findings. The discussion will cover the finer points of conducting an efficient and effective inspection including tips for both in-plant and consultant thermographers.
This 32 hour course is for energy auditors, weatherization contractors, home inspectors and facility maintenance personnel who use thermal imaging to inspect residential homes and small commercial buildings. The class is designed to meet the proposed BPI and RESNET standards, is recognized for 16 CEU's from BPI, will satisfy the Level 1 infrared educational requirements from ASNT and, in Canada, meet the new National Master Specifications (NMS) Section 02 27 13, Thermographic Assessment; Building Envelope.
This course follows the ASNT Level 1 recommended curriculum and focuses on the nondestructive evaluation of materials/composites using active thermography and the Thermal Wave EchoTherm® System from Thermal Wave Imaging. (On-site courses using other IR imaging equipment are available.) An optional day is reserved for individuals with qualifying work experience who wish to take a three-part certification examination.
Learn the principles of how to Think Thermally®, basic heat transfer theory, electrical applications, mechanical equipment, building systems, roof inspections, use of thermal imaging equipment and proper image acquisition. Includes the Snell Certification Standard.
Essential training for the professional thermographer, Level 2 offers greater depth and analysis on surface heat transfer, temperature measurement techniques, prioritizing findings, procedures and camera operation. Prerequisite: Level 1
This advanced course follows the ASNT Level 2 recommended curriculum and focuses on the nondestructive testing of materials using active thermography and the Thermal Wave EchoTherm® System from Thermal Wave Imaging. (On-site courses using other IR imaging equipment are available.) An optional day is reserved for individuals with qualifying work experience who wish to take a three-part certification examination.
Review industry best practices, standards, writing procedures and personnel certification issues. This course also covers how to prepare for the ASNT Level 3 T/IR method exam. Designed for supervisors and managers of thermography programs. Prerequisite: Level 2
Covers in-plant mechanical systems including motors, rotating equipment, fluid and storage systems, high temperature applications and mobile equipment. Inspection methodologies, analysis techniques and reporting are also discussed. Suggested pre-requisite: Level I
An overview of inspecting mechanical equipment, safely and effectively, including conditions needed, typical patterns detected & limitations of the technology.
Infrared can help diagnose problems in industrial mechanical equipment including motors, bearings, couplings, belts and conveyor systems. While a successful application, Thermographers should also realize that there can be limitations to using IR. This webinar provides an overview of inspecting mechanical equipment, safely and effectively, including conditions needed, typical patterns detected, limitations of the technology and how to prioritize findings.
This online course is designed for energy auditors and weatherization contractors who use, or are considering adding, thermal imaging to inspect residential homes.
