What is Thermal Imaging?

Thermal imaging (Marine Infrared) is a unique tool that uses the infrared portion of the light spectrum that is invisible to the naked eye.  Infrared (IR), Thermography, or Thermal scanning, as it is sometimes called, allows the user to see one’s environment with or without any visible illumination or light.  All objects over absolute zero give off a certain amount of thermal radiation. Thermal imaging provides a way to observe temperature anomalies in any machine or object, living, natural, or manmade even in solids like wood, fiberglass, aluminum, and steel.  Thermal imaging or thermography is used by multiple sectors such as law enforcement and security, military, firefighting, medicine, science research, air and sea navigation, and marine surveying. IR is especially useful for predictive/preventative maintenance, new construction, and post laminate/structural repairs.  Thermal imaging cameras provide a nondestructive, environmentally friendly way to see temperature differentials in an object to verify such things as electrical and mechanical failures, structural design, delamination (disbanding), damage, and to locate moisture intrusion.
