Burlington, NJ  February 26, 2015 -- ASTM International recently presented Infraspection Institute’s Director, Jim Seffrin, with an ASTM Service Recognition Service Award for his 30 years’ service to Committee E07 on Nondestructive Testing.

Following the award, Mr. Seffrin had this to say: “During the past 30 years, standards have been crucial in the advancement of infrared thermography and non-contact temperature measurement. It has been a privilege to work with fellow Society members who recognize the importance of applications and equipment usage standards. I look forward to working with Committee E07 to develop new standards as the science of thermography continues to evolve.”

ASTM International is a nonprofit, international organization that develops and publishes voluntary consensus standards for a wide range of materials, products, systems, and services. ASTM has more than 30,000 members, including over 1150 organizational members from more than 150 countries. ASTM publishes eight separate standards pertaining to the conduct of infrared inspections and the use of thermal imaging equipment.

In addition to standards available from ASTM, eleven comprehensive infrared standards are available from Infraspection Institute. These documents cover equipment operation, temperature measurement, and specific thermographic applications. Infraspection infrared standards are updated periodically to keep abreast of industry and technological changes. Infrared Standards may be purchased separately for $35 each or all eleven for $300. Most standards are available in English or Spanish and may be purchased through the Infraspection Online Store.
