Trending Data to Reveal Anomalies
As a thermographer, your job is to present the facts. In our case, the facts are usually presented in visual form (thermographs) and temperature in numeric form.
Radiometric images are harder to trend, but the data they contain can be plotted and tracked. There are a few obstacles to avoid, or at least recognize while recording, plotting, and trending temperature data.
Sometimes, anomalies are not immediately identifiable. Other data pertinent to the process can help identify an anomaly and perhaps determine a root cause. Performing inspections on motors, electrical, refractory lined equipment and furnace tubes, and recording data over time can be immensely helpful to you as an inspector.
This presentation will address the benefits of multiple inspections and data recording over time in an effort to identify anomalies.

Remote Monitoring Considerations and Applications Using Ultrasound
Airborne and structure-borne ultrasound technology has become a major player in predictive and preventive maintenance. Ultrasound has been proven and accepted by maintenance and reliability professionals globally across many industry and manufacturing sectors.
With the advancements in technology and software, potential electrical and mechanical failures can be diagnosed early; therefore, allowing for more time to plan, schedule, kit, and perform work that would have otherwise been more reactive.
Using ultrasound for condition monitoring impacts costs, increases productivity and best of all, improves safety. This presentation will focus on remote continuous monitoring applications using ultrasound, the need to monitor assets continuously for improved asset health measurements and data, and where we are seeing more and more guarding and shielding of assets. Remote monitoring with ultrasound can become a critical tool to help you continue to safely monitor your assets.

Cost Benefit Analysis of Infrared Scans
The purpose of this paper is to inform fellow thermographers about the cost benefits of performing infrared electrical surveys. The paper will cover cost of repairs before failure and cost after failure, HSB’s internal claims data, claims data from property insurance carriers, as well as some figures from NFPA.
Focusing on HSB’s infrared program, I will discuss how our program has developed over the last 35 years. The presentation will also cover some of our claims data regarding electrical losses such as common causes of failures, costs, etc. I will also present claims figures from property carriers we partner with as well as statistics from NFPA on a national level.
This paper will present:
• A brief history of HSB and our infrared program
• Tracking of findings with cost avoidance ratios
• Some of our claims data related to electrical losses
• Claims figures from property carriers when an electrical loss results in a fire
• Figures from NFPA related to electrical losses
