Paper Abstract

The benefits of using infrared thermography in monitoring a facility for maintenance purposes have been documented for many years. Adding the capability of displaying previously collected, or baseline, images for online comparison with live images would reduce the time needed for problem identification, improve the accuracy of problem diagnosis, and assist in confirming that all failures have been addressed, without requiring the thermographer to carry and sort through volumes of hard copies of previous reports in the field. A new generation of modern instrumentation makes this method of thermographic analysis not only practical but efficient.
