Thermal Imaging is done using thermal cameras. They are also known as infra-red camera’s. These cameras can capture infra-red rays radiating off an object and depict them as various colors depending on the amount of heat the object is radiating. Any object can absorb or emit heat. Different surfaces absorb or emit heat at different rates. As such it becomes easy to image different types of surfaces since their thermal images will be clearly defined by different colors. For instance cold surfaces are often depicted on the thermal image by shades of either blue green or purple. Warm surfaces will appear yellow orange or red. Infrared cameras are a special type of camera that can capture infrared rays. As mentioned earlier all objects emit infrared rays. Infrared cameras capture these rays and depict them as different colors on a screen depending on their intensity. Modern infrared cameras can measure the intensity of the rays and hence the temperature of the surface being imaged.

As mentioned earlier the biggest application of thermal imaging is structure inspections. It is used to investigate the condition of buildings electrical systems plumbing systems and many other structures. Before we get to the nitty-gritty of thermal imaging application. Let first take a look at the types of thermal imaging cameras that one can use. For further information visithttps://thermoelite.ca/how-thermal-imaging-works/or call us on 514 969 5150.
