Roof Surveys: Dealing with Reflectivity

IR Roof Image

From Jersey Infrared Consultants’ Sept/Oct 2016 Newsletter

Online — “A 2015 survey of national roofing contractors indicated that single-ply roof systems (EPDM, TPO, PVC, etc.) accounted for almost 49% of the roofs installed nationwide. These roofing systems can present challenges for thermographers who inspect them due to reflectivity of the roof membrane.

“Should reflectance be sufficiently high, areas of latent moisture may be undetectable to a thermal imager.

“Most infrared inspections of flat or low slope roofing systems are conducted at night by walking across the roof surface using a handheld thermal imager. This technique often results in a relatively shallow viewing angle thereby lowering the emittance of the subject roof membrane. Continue reading →

How to interpret & choose the correct (IR) camera…

One Hour Free Webinar: Now available for on demand viewing

 Markus Tarin, President & CEO, MoviMEDBy: Markus Tarin, President & CEO, MoviMED

Online  —  Infrared imaging technologies can be deployed in an array of applications, including machine vision and security and surveillance, but a number of different cameras and options are available in today’s market.

On June 22, Markus Tarin, President & CEO of MoviTHERM provided an overview of the different types of detectors and materials used to capture NIR, SWIR, and LWIR wavelengths, as well as how to interpret infrared camera specifications.

Tarin also provided a look at the different types of cameras available that capture these wavelengths, why to choose a cooled vs. non-cooled camera, and the types of applications that each camera is used for, with a number of specific examples provided. Continue reading →

Measure temperatures that are changing rapidly

Application Story from FLIR

FLIR APP STORYOnline — How do you measure the heat of an object that is moving fast or changing temperature rapidly?

Traditional temperature measurement tools such as thermocouples or spot pyrometers don’t offer the resolution or speed* needed to fully characterize high speed thermal applications.

These tools are impractical for measuring an object in motion – or at the very least, provide an incomplete picture of an object’s thermal properties.

In contrast, an infrared camera can measure temperature across an entire scene, capturing thermal readings for each pixel. Infrared cameras can offer fast, accurate, non-contact temperature measurement.

By choosing the correct type of camera for your application, you will be able to gather reliable measurements at high speeds, produce stop-motion thermal images, and generate compelling research data. Continue reading →
