Abstract
Thermal Imaging and Measurement Service is a reliable and efficient non-destructive inspection which has helped numerous customers reduce maintenance and repair costs, shorten downtime and improve performance at nuclear/fossil power plants. This paper will describe two applications, the qualification of Mineral Insulation (MI) Cable, and Furnace Tube Inspection. The examples given above were chosen to show the capabilities of the Thermal Imaging and Measurement Service, the diversity of the application, and the techniques required to obtain meaningful information.
