Here we will talk about the importance of thermal imager for security.
Forest fire prevention
In large areas of forest, fires are often caused by inconspicuous igneous fires. This is the root cause of devastating fires, and it is difficult to find such hidden fires by conventional methods. However, with aircraft patrols and infrared thermal imagers, these smoldering fires can be quickly and efficiently detected, and the fire is eliminated. The use of thermal imaging cameras can accurately determine the location and extent of these fires, so that early detection, early prevention, early extinguishment. The use of a thermal imager is simple, fast, and timely.
Electrical equipment fire detection
Thermal imaging cameras can also be used to detect poor contact with electrical equipment and overheated mechanical components to avoid severe short circuits and fires. In practical applications, thermal imaging cameras perform overheating checks on plugs in power plants, substations, and high-voltage lines, often detecting abnormal hot spots and severe hot spots. Due to timely detection and processing, many fire accidents have been reduced.
Statistics from US insurers show that more than 25% of all electrical equipment hazards are the main cause of fires, caused by poor plug contact. For all devices that can be seen directly, infrared thermal imaging products are able to identify thermal hazards at all connection points.
Fire on-site search and rescue
Infrared applications are a detection technique developed based on the inherent thermal radiation properties of the object itself. The infrared search and rescue technology extended by the technology in the field of fire protection can help firefighters clearly display the shape of the object in the smoke at the scene of the fire in a complex state such as heavy smoke, heat, and building collapse. And the temperature at each point helps firefighters quickly search for people in distress and valuables. Moreover, it is also possible to find a fire point or a large fire source in time, thereby reducing the time of firefighting and reducing the loss of articles, which is a favorable tool for the rescue work on the fire site. Compared with traditional fire-fighting and rescue methods based on naked-eye reconnaissance, infrared thermal imaging cameras based on infrared technology can help firefighters not be exposed to smoke and darkness, clearly observe, discover, and grasp the real situation of the fire field, and make scientific decision making and proper deployment as soon as possible.
