Who is in the IRINFO Group?
The IRINFO Group is made up primarily of practicing infrared thermographers from around the world. These thermographers are a combination of in-house personnel and contract service providers. Some of our members are formally trained and certified, others are not. Many are members of related professional organizations such as ASTM, ASNT, NFPA, NETA and SPIE.
One of the greatest assets of the IRINFO Group is the collective professional experience of our members. There is simply no other place where you will find more collective professional experience than the IRINFO Group. When you ask a question here, you are accessing literally hundreds of years of professional experience!
There are many manufacturers and vendors to the infrared thermographic community in the IRINFO Group. Most are willing to assist the thermographic professional in their daily work. They are also interested in your helpful suggestions for their products and services.
Netiquette in the IRINFO Group

- Do not use foul or profane language.
- Do not make personal attacks on individuals or companies.
- Do not use vulgarity.
- Do not attack another’s personal beliefs.
- Think before you hit the “enter” key and send your message around the world to other thermographic professionals. Remember, you are entitled to your opinion, as are others.
- Individuals from around the world are represented on this forum and sometimes, depending on local custom and codes, people do things differently. This does not make them wrong.
- All posts must be in English.
- Discussion of pricing or disseminating information which violates antitrust laws will result in permanent removal from this forum.
- Spamming will result in removal from the IRINFO Group.
- Do not send graphic files as attachments to your email. Some people still have slow connections to the Internet and graphic files just take too long to download. If you feel that you have a graphic that everyone should see, just send an email describing the graphic and offer to send the file to individuals who request it from you.
- If you have a problem with another individual member of the IRINFO Group, please send a private message to that person in an attempt to resolve the problem. Don’t bring it to the floor of the IRINFO Group. If you receive a private communication from another individual, treat it as private. It is contrary to good netiquette to repost someone’s private message to the IRINFO Group.
