What is thermography in chemistry?
Thermography is the process of using an infrared camera to look for abnormally hot or cold areas on a component operating under normal conditions. It is a viable nondestructive evaluation technique for the characterization of corrosion in metallic materials and is the simplest of all thermal inspection techniques.
What is the principle of thermography?
The principle of infrared thermography is based on the physical phenomenon that any body of a temperature above absolute zero (-273.15 °C) emits electromagnetic radiation. There is clear correlation between the surface of a body and the intensity and spectral composition of its emitted radiation.
What are two common types of thermography?
There are two types of thermography: passive and active. Passive thermography measures relevant temperature differences of the surface by heating it with lamps (heat sources).
Why do we use thermography?
Thermography can be used to find faulty thermal insulation by locating heat leaks in order to improve the efficiency of heating and air conditioning units. An inspection of the building envelope can also find air leaks in window and doorframes.
What are the uses of thermography?
Thermography is a test that uses an infrared camera to detect heat patterns and blood flow in body tissues. Digital infrared thermal imaging (DITI) is the type of thermography that’s used to diagnose breast cancer. DITI reveals temperature differences on the surface of the breasts to diagnose breast cancer.
Who uses thermal imaging?
DOD firefighters employ thermal imaging cameras, which can see through smoke, to detect fire hot spots so they know where to aim water or foam. The cameras also help firefighters see what areas to avoid as they navigate through zero visibility conditions caused by smoke.
Who invented thermography?
Fig. 3 – John Herschel who made and named the thermogram in 1840. Fig. 4 – Prof Samuel Langley who invented the bolometer in 1880.
What are the limitations of thermal imaging?
Drawbacks or disadvantages of Thermal Imaging ➨Thermal imaging products require high initial investment cost. ➨Images are difficult to interpret in specific objects having erratic temperatures. ➨Accurate temperature measurements are hindered by differing emissivities and reflections from surfaces.

What is included in the Handbook of food analytical Chem?
In organizing the Handbook of Food Analytical Chem- istry we chose to categorize on a disciplinary rather than a commodity basis. Included are chapters on water, proteins, enzymes, lipids, carbohydrates, colors, flavors texture/ rheology and bioactive food components.
