Abstract:

A method for nondestructive testing of fuel filters and other turbine parts has been developed using thermography. Thermography detects temperature differences on an object in the form of a thermal picture thermogram through use of the natural infrared radiation which varies with the surface temperature of the object. Thermal changes resulting from material defects are detected by the thermogram through the various colors displayed when the temperature differences are converted electronically to a color television picture. Experimental results also showed thermography to be successful as a nondestructive test device for determining defects in fuel handling equipment. Author
