Tim Garnett lifts the lid. Heavy mobile equipment thermography.
AUGUST 8, 2018
How did you first discover thermography?
I heard about thermography when I was working as a reliability technician. I was reading an article about different non-destructive techniques and how they play a role for a successful condition monitoring strategy and was fascinated by thermography.
During my Heavy Duty Diesel apprenticeship I learned that heat can be an indicator of failure within componentry and when I learnt about thermography I thought how great it would be to have a visual representation of the “hot spot”.
