What is Infrared Thermal Imaging?

Thermal imaging, also called thermography. Everything gives off some amount of thermal radiation and thermal imaging is used for observing the heat that is emitted from these objects. The amount of radiation emitted by an object increases with temperature; therefore, thermal imaging allows humans to see variations in temperature. When observed through a thermal imaging camera, hotter objects stand out well against cooler surroundings. Thermal imaging is used widely in many industries in a predictive and proactive way to ensure electrical safety is met, so that mechanical or electrical failure is prevented. Thermal imaging is also used in security, the military, marine, navigation, surveillance, firefighting, medicine, and science.


All Points Safety Thermal Imaging's focus is thermal imaging of electrical switchgear, but we routinely scan bearings, gearboxes, transformers, motors, plant and production equipment.
Our client base include hospitals, RSL clubs, hotels, large and small corporations, factories, properly managing agents, shopping centres, government builds and other infrastructure.
We have the facility to test and tag.

Our policy dictates that we use state of the art thermal imaging devices.


Following each site visit, we prepare a comprehensive report which:

  • Graphically maps the faulty equipment surface temperature. A spectrum of colours indicates an increase or decrease in the amount of infrared radiation being emitted from the body surface.
  • Quantifies the severity of the abnormality.
  • Suggests time-frame for repair.

  • Advantages of Thermal Imaging Inspections

  • Quick problem detection without interrupting service (Non Contact, Non Destructive)
  • Prevention of premature failure and extension of equipment life
  • Increase the effectiveness of your maintenance Personnel efforts
  • Identification of potentially dangerous or hazardous equipment
  • Condition Monitoring
  • Reduction in Insurance Premiums (subject Insurance Company)
  • Reduce Inventory cost
  • Effective infrared scanning in order to save revenue and prevent unscheduled down-time
  • Comprehensive reporting and data trending
  • Missing or poorly installed Insulation
  • Most importantly Safety to operators and Staff
