    Horse Vet

    Advances in thermal imaging technology are giving rise to the new field of veterinary thermography. Sandie Chambers of Equitherm uses FLIR thermal imaging cameras to evaluate health and injury issues in performance horses. Using the ability of the camera to detect minute temperature differences in a target, Chambers compares the thermographic symmetry of the horse’s body to identify anomalies that may indicate injuries and health problems where no visible symptoms are present.

    Chambers and other scientists believe that equine preventative medicine is just the tip of the iceberg in veterinary thermography, extending its use to all animals through working with zoos and wildlife parks. Medical uses of thermal imagers are also being explored in humans as well, because of their non-invasive nature. For applications similar to Chambers’, the FLIR T-series cameras are ideal.

    Transocean Inc.

    Thermal imagers have a wide range of application in the industrial and mechanical fields due to the high amount of heat and friction generated by the constantly moving parts and machinery. Transocean Inc., the world’s largest offshore oil drilling contractor, uses FLIR cameras to diagnose problems aboard their rigs to save on valuable time and repair costs.

    In one instance where one of only two glycol pumps on a rig was scheduled to be stripped and disassembled to diagnose a problem, Bob Speirs, an operations engineer, used a FLIR thermal camera to pinpoint the problem to a suction valve that was generating excess heat due to a cracked guide. The part was replaced, saving 12 hours of labor and downtime for the pump. The full range of FLIR cameras provides these valuable heat sensing capabilities.

    Pet Diagnosis

    Any changes in organic activity produce heat that can be visualized by a thermal imager. Finnish researcher and veterinarian Mari Vainionpää is using FLIR infrared cameras to find and preliminarily diagnose inflammations, bruises, tendon or muscle related injuries, superficial tumors, nerve damage, and blood circulation issues in her animal patients.

    Vainionpää points out that when compared to expensive diagnostic equipment like x-ray machines and MRI machines, a thermal imager is very cost effective; and while it cannot replace these machines it is a viable preliminary step in identifying a variety of problems in animal patients. For applications similar to Vainionpää’s, choose the FLIR T-series. To learn more, read this Application Story from Flir.
