The Professional Thermographers Association’s Visitors Center has been designed to provide information to the public regarding the PTA and the thermography industry. This visitors center is also designed to allow members of the thermography community to express general comments and opinions about thermal imaging and thermography.
Under proper conditions, thermal imaging may be used to remotely detect evidence of a wide variety of gas leaks including sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) and ammonia.
