CRL 1-hr: Nov 7 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

Each winning school will receive one Fluke Thermal Imager kit including software, two rechargeable batteries, charger, operation manual and USB adapter. These Fluke imagers are designed for inspecting building envelopes to spot leaks and find places where energy is being lost. For more on Fluke thermal imagers and other test tools for weatherization, home and commercial energy audits and building inspections, visit the Fluke Weatherization website.

The Fluke Weatherization Grant Program, announced in July 2009, drew applications from more than 100 high schools, community colleges, universities and training programs across the U.S. and Canada. Winners were chosen by a review committee of industry professionals who examined many program elements, including the breadth of course offerings and the types and numbers of certificates and degrees conferred.

“It is a privilege to contribute to training the young technicians who will keep our homes and businesses warm, comfortable and energy-efficient in the future,” said Kirsten Paust, General Manager, Fluke Thermography. “We were extremely impressed by the quality and depth of these programs. These advanced Fluke test instruments will help make them even better.”

Interest in energy conservation, home energy inspections and weatherization services has soared in the wake of the energy price spike of 2008 and passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which expands federal financial assistance for weatherizing the homes of low-income citizens and includes a training and technical assistance program for training contractors.

Fluke is contributing portable thermal imagers with outstanding image quality. Thermal imagers detect heat patterns or temperature changes in objects. These patterns or changes allow the user to discover problems effectively and efficiently. Users can capture up to 150 high quality infrared images and easily prepare reports from their PC.

These Fluke thermal imagers are optimized for roofing inspections, moisture (mold) detection, electrical inspections and energy audits. Each unit comes with two rechargeable batteries and a charger. The thermal imaging cameras that Fluke is contributing have an estimated value of $5,000. They are demonstrator (used) units that have been inspected and tested for proper operation.
