The importance of image quality in thermography

When conducting infrared inspections, high quality images that allow for better analysis, presentation and professionalism are essential.

With a sharply focused image, there is a distinct contrast between areas of varying thermal energy on the surface being inspected. This allows the individual detector elements (also known as pixels) to clearly report the intensity of the energy being focused on them.

When the focus is poor, the incoming energy isn’t as concentrated on individual detectors, and their response is skewed. This can lead to temperature measurements that are significantly off, resulting in expensive downtime and possible safety hazards.

Thermal imagers are made with 100% diamond-turned germanium lenses covered with a specialty coating, providing premium quality images.

Thermal image using Fluke's LaserSharp™ Auto Focus

LaserSharp Auto Focus allows you to select and focus on a specific target

Easily choose and focus on your target

LaserSharp™ Auto Focus uses a built in laser distance meter that provides both speed and precision. The laser-driven target detection pinpoints the target while the camera focuses to capture a precise, high quality image. With LaserSharp Auto Focus, you can:

  • Easily capture high-quality, focused images of your desired target with the push of a button
  • Take infrared images through common obstacles like chain link fences
  • Avoid skewed temperature measurements by precisely choosing your target
  • Perform the same inspections multiple times as a part of your preventive maintenance program - the built-in laser distance meter calculates and displays how far you are from your target, making repeatability much easier

Choose multiple targets at different distances

MultiSharp™ Focus takes multiple images from different focal distances and combines them into one clear image. With a simple point and shoot, you can go from being completely out of focus, to complete focus, throughout the field of view. With MultiSharp:

  • Reduce the need to take individual images of targets that are in the camera’s field of view - focus on one target, and all objects that are in the camera’s field of view will be in focus
  • Cut down time spent taking multiple images to increase productivity
  • Capture quality, in-focus images, even under direct sunlight

ROI and thermal imaging

Seven benefits of on-site infrared inspections

  1. Reduce downtime
    Inspections can be done while equipment is running - no lost production time.
  2. Protect lives while doing more
    The non-contact nature of infrared inspections allows technicians to scan large areas quickly, from a safer distance away. That means technicians can inspect more equipment faster.
  3. Improve production efficiency
    Subtle problems are found and addressed before they have a major impact on production.
  4. Document before and after
    Validate post-maintenance work and capture the results for future review.
  5. Reduce capital expenses
    Finding and repairing problems at an early stage can improve the life expectancy of equipment, as a result extending replacement intervals.
  6. Increase productivity
    Quickly scan a large area to find air leaks, insulation gaps, moisture and overheated electrical components to complete more work in less time.
  7. Identify work in easy-to-understand terms
    See exactly what the problem is on the camera, eliminating guesswork and making it easier for everyone to see what repairs needs to be done.

10 things you need to know about Thermal Imagers

Whether you choose a simple point-and-shoot model or a high-end thermal imager with all the bells and whistles, here are some key features and specs you should consider:

1
Resolution
  • Detector resolution indicates the number of detector pixels on the camera. More pixels, means higher resolution
  • Spatial resolution is based on detector pixels and the field of view (FOV) spec, combining them to define the area the imager sees at any given moment. Spatial resolution can be used to help define the smallest object size that can be detected. A lower spatial resolution value means better detail and image quality
2
Focus

With a variety of focus mechanisms to choose from, it is important to take into account your skill level as well as the application in selecting a focus type. Here are the common focus mechanisms:

  • Fixed: Point and shoot simplicity
  • Manual: Precise incremental focus
  • Auto focus: Automatically focuses on a target but may require manual adjustment
  • Laser-assisted auto focus: Uses a built-in laser distance meter to calculate distance to the target
  • Multifocal: Captures and stores multiple images of the target from varying focal distances and uses software to blend them into one image with ultra-sharp depth of field detail. Fluke Corp., for example, calls its implementation of this technology MultiSharp™ Focus

3
Temperature range

The highest and lowest temperature you encounter in your inspection determines the temperature range you need from your thermal imager. Or, select a camera with a wide temperature range that automatically selects the range based on your scene, or allows you to manually select the temperature range.

4
Lens options

A camera that lets you change lenses increases your versatility, allowing you to inspect many more types of equipment and situations. There are lots of choices for lots of applications—standard, wide angle, telephoto, and macro.

5
Saving images and additional data

Save infrared and digital images and in some cases voice notes to internal memory, a removable SD card, or to a USB flash drive. It’s important to have the flexibility to save images and additional related data to different media for backup or sharing.

6
Color palettes

Slight differences are easier to see with a monochromatic palette, such as grayscale or amber. High contrast palettes can make it easier to quickly find obvious anomalies. You should be able to change the palette in the camera or in the software.

7
Color alarms

Use these to quickly highlight areas outside your normal temperature ranges.

8
Emissivity and reflected temperatures

Low emissivity surfaces, such as shiny metals, can reflect infrared energy from other objects and throw off your image and your measurement accuracy. So, look for the option to adjust parameters when choosing an imager.

9
Spot markers

Mark specific temperatures on your image to compare simultaneous temperatures from multiple points on the same image.

10
Battery type and life

Look for a battery with useful features such a charge level indicator. Nothing is worse than starting an inspection with no idea of the battery status. Also consider long battery life and quick charging ability.

Use of infrared thermography in electronics

By Sat Sandhu, Fluke

Electronic circuits and components come in a variety of shapes and forms. All electronics operate with current flowing, which in turn leads to power dissipation. This power dissipation manifests itself primarily in the form of heat. Hence a key factor in the design, tests, verification and troubleshooting of all electronics, is heat management. With increasing circuit complexity and or reduction in size, heat management of electronics is taking on a more significant role in the design phase and also in the subsequent phases of test, verification and troubleshooting.

Thermal imaging cameras (TI) are an ideal tool to use in mapping out the heat patterns on electronic circuits and components. Two major advantages of Thermal imaging over contact temperature measurement devices are:

  1. The ability to measure temperatures without making contact with the circuit or component, thus ensuring that the temperature of the object is not affected.
  2. The ability to view a large area or even the whole circuit or component, rather than measuring a single point.

Using thermal imaging to troubleshoot motors and drives

By Sat Sandhu, Fluke

Infrared cameras, also called thermal imagers, are useful for troubleshooting motor problems as well as for monitoring motor condition for preventative maintenance in power generation, manufacturing and commercial plants. Thermal images of motors reveal their operating condition as indicated by surface temperature. Such condition monitoring is important as a way to avert many unexpected motor malfunctions in systems that are critical to manufacturing.

The onset of motor failures can often be detected by a variety of techniques, including vibration, ultrasound and thermal imaging.

Thermal image of machinery

Thermal image of machinery

Why thermal imaging?

Thermal imaging is an effective way to assess equipment condition. Thermal imaging enables you to:

  • Inspect while the equipment is running
  • Verify repairs have been done properly
  • Inspect faster and from a safer distance
  • Improve repair efficiency

What to scan?

To get started in building heat profiles of your motors, it is a best practice to capture good quality infrared images when the motors are running under normal operating conditions. That gives you baseline measurements of the temperature of components. An infrared camera can capture temperatures of all the critical components: motor, shaft coupling, motor and shaft bearings, and the gearbox.

When you are working with low electrical loads, the indications of a problem may be subtle. Thus a minimum of 40% of design load is recommended (National Fire Protection Association NFPA 70B), and the higher the load, the better. When inspecting in low load situations, be sure to note all possible problems, even if they reflect only a small temperature difference. As a load increases, the temperature will increase too and if a problem exists, expect greater temperature differences at higher loads.

Parallel misalignment

What to look for?

All motors should list the normal operating temperature on the nameplate. Abnormal temperatures, which will show up on a thermal imaging inspection, can be an indication of:

Inadequate cooling because of insufficient air flow. Clearing this issue may only require minor cleaning on the air intake grills.

Power quality issues such as unbalanced voltage or overload or harmonics. All of these will cause excessive heat dissipation.

Impending bearing failure. An overheating bearing is an indication of an impending bearing failure. Bearing condition degrade for a number of reasons:

  • Heavier than anticipated loading
  • Inadequate or incorrect lubrication
  • Ineffective sealing
  • Shaft misalignment
  • Incorrect fit

Insulation failure. With failing insulation of the motor windings the overall motor temperature increases this overheating causes failures and reduces insulation time.

Shaft misalignment. Most misalignment cases are a combination of parallel and angular misalignment (see images above).

Creating regular inspection routes that include thermal images of all critical motor/drive combinations and tracking to those baseline images will help you determine whether a hotspot is unusual or not, and help you verify if the repairs were successful.
