The World's Sixth Sense ~ Flir Imaging

At FLIR we provide superpower vision, helping people around the world save lives, protect the environment, and enhance productivity. We're building more than innovative technologies; we're striving to build a more sustainable, more efficient, safer future.

FLIR thermal imaging can enhance any busy lifestyle. Whether you’re exploring the great outdoors, enjoying a night on the town, or tackling projects around the house, FLIR thermal vision will reveal an unseen world that will amaze you.

Thermal Imaging for Building Diagnostics

Missing, damaged, or inadequate insulation, building envelope air leaks, moisture intrusion, and substandard work are costly to residential and commercial building owners. An infrared camera can help you quickly see and find the sources of energy efficiencies, destructive water damage, and structural issues so you can help customers make informed decisions on needed repairs that can help them save energy dollars and stay more comfortable.

FLIR infrared cameras make it easy to perform non-destructive inspections that isolate cold and warm air infiltration/exfiltration so necessary repairs and improvements can be made to tighten energy efficiency. FLIR thermal imagers can also instantly show temperature differences that verify what’s wet and what’s dry and are the IR inspection cameras preferred most by building experts for fast, reliable diagnosing of a full range of building applications, from energy audits and restoration to roofing and commissioning. 

If you work on HVAC/R systems, you need one simple tool to help you find problems quickly and show customers that you've fixed the problem. It's a FLIR infrared camera for HVAC/R.
These affordable systems start at less than $400 and offer the resolution, temperature measurement, and thermal sensitivity needed to troubleshoot any HVAC/R system. Once you've experienced the power of thermal imaging for yourself, you may wonder how you ever worked without it!

FLIR Thermal Imaging for Manufacturing Industries

Predictive maintenance and RCM programs at manufacturing facilities regularly use thermal imaging cameras for inspecting a countless number of mechanical and electrical components.
An infrared image that integrates accurate temperature data provides maintenance experts with crucial information about the condition of all kinds of equipment. As a non-contact measurement tool that also makes invisible heat issues visible, thermal cameras let technicians inspect production equipment more safely even at peak operation. Along with troubleshooting, thermal imagers can also help optimize the production process itself as well as monitor quality control.

Mechanical Equipment

Some examples of mechanical equipment where thermography is used:
  • Pumps: Overheated connections, fuse problems, overloaded electrical cables, etc.
  • Process valves: Open, closed, leakage
  • Storage tanks: Sludge levels
  • Pipelines: Check if and where there are anomalies, for example locate build-up of scale, etc.
  • Motors: Overheating bearings, misalignment, overheated windings
  • Conveyor belts: Overheated bearings
  • Furnace inspections: With a special camera designed to “see through flames” for high temperature industrial furnace applications, ideal for monitoring all types of furnaces, heaters and boilers

Electrical Equipment

Some examples of electrical equipment where thermography is used:
  • Primary power source: Outdoor high voltage switchyard
  • Switchgear
  • Transformers
  • Low voltage installations: Breaker panels, faulty electrical outlets/wall sockets
  • Fuse panels
  • Motor control centers (MCC)
  • Electrical cabinets
