28 March 1986 Infrared Thermography As A Predictive Maintenance Tool
Author Affiliations +
The current economic and political climate does not favor the construction of new power plants. Many utilities are currently considering life extension of existing plants. There is also a definite lack of expansion on the industrial side for similar reasons. More emphasis is now being placed on predictive and preventive maintenance programs as one part of the solution to this problem. How infrared thermography fits into these programs is described here.
