Ultrasound and infrared support each other in many inspection activities. By integrating both of these technologies into an inspection process, accurate, quick results can be expected. Heat and sound are the most reliable indicators of potential problems in mechanical, fluid and electrical systems. Inspection of steam traps and valves, heat exchangers, underground leaks, motors, pumps and bearings, hydraulic systems, and high voltage equipment can all benefit by combining infrared and ultrasound into the inspection process. This paper describes some of the more common applications and discusses how each technology supports the other when used together.
