Thermal imaging can be applied to examine the transfer of infrared heat radiation from an object which, as a result gives way to identify thermal emissions of different surfaces, and displays a visual representation of temperature variations. Although this type of application could possibly presents potential problem areas thus needs to be addressed properly to improve the safety and efficiency of electrical equipments, building structures and other apparatus’. Some of the many applications of infrared scanning are objects such as transformers, electrical switchboards, transmission lines, circuit breakers, fuses, and switches. Through scanning of such objects it will be possible to lessen the chances of risks and therefore lesser insurance premiums. The utmost advantage of thermal image detection though is that it allows maintenance personnel to identify the faulty area before it even becomes a problem.
