Scantherma R&D 2 Images revealed.

If you have not guessed what the Thermal images from our last R&D blog entry were from here it is.

 

Hot water

Boiling water in bowl.

All the thermal images from our previous entry were of this ordinary bowl, or rather what was in it. Boiling hot water.

The patterns were formed in a few ways. The vortex images for instance were caused by moving a small spoon through the water in a horizontal pattern. The wake caused small curly shapes that could only be seen through a thermal camera. Other patterns were formed by mixing the water with the spoon, pouring cold water into the hot water and throwing in some Ice. Mixing a small amount of detergent into the water gave us the final image labelled Pumice in Lava. The images owe their colours to the different Thermal Palettes that were used when post-processing them. The thermal range was also limited in some images to accentuate the hottest or coldest areas in the image.

Scantherma R&D 2

Welcome to the second Scantherma R&D post. As mentioned in our last post, we at Scantherma conduct a fair few experiments to help us gain a better understanding of the technologies that we use for our everyday work. In doing this “R&D” we can come up with better techniques that can ultimately save time and enhance the quality of our process and end product.  Here are the second set of images.

That’s all  for the second round of R&D images. It is amazing what one can see through a Thermal Camera. The invisible becomes visible. As before try to guess the subject matter of the above images. The Digital photos will be revealed next week so stay tuned.

 

Scantherma Thermal Imaging Test Images revealed.

In the previous blog entry we saw a set of very interesting thermal images taken from a series of objects during a Scantherma Thermal Imaging test session that more or less represented astronomical phenomenon. Below are digital images showing those same objects.

The Jam Doughnut in Test image 1 was heated for 30 seconds on high in a microwave. It retained its heat for a while and had a core temperature of more than 110 degrees centigrade. That’s enough to give any hungry doughnut lover a seriously burnt tongue. The thermal image was processed in different IR Palettes to produce the images from the last R&D post.

Mug with hot water (Test Image 2) that was then mixed with a spoon to form a maelstrom effect. The thermal image was then processed to show a very narrow range of the highest temperatures thus displaying the the water in a nice purple and cancelling out the much cooler cup.

Boiling water (Test Image 3) was poured into this bowl followed by flakes of ice. The water surface was very hot and the ice extremely cold thus giving the illusion of the Sun with giant sun spots.   There you have it. Some interesting “trickery” with thermal cameras. Stay tuned for our next R&D blog next week with more interesting images.

Scantherma Thermal Imaging Test 1

At Scantherma we conduct a lot of research and development and a lot it concerns Thermal Imaging. Below are a set of very interesting images that were taken during our last session of research.

Have in mind that not everything is as it seems so try to guess what the following thermal images are from.

The true identity of these images will be revealed in our next R&D Blog entry. In the meanwhile have a go at guessing what these Thermal Images are showing.
