Ghost in the…Refractory?

With Halloween coming up in a few weeks, we’ve got a fun “ghost hunter” video that we’re putting the final touches on which I think you’ll enjoy.  Keep an eye out for it right before the end of the month. Until then, on a related note, a thermographer from a recent ITC training course sent in this gem of a find.

ITC Instructor John Waggoner received these images from Craig Dickey.  Craig was conducting a furnace inspection at the time when he came across this unusual thermal pattern while scanning around the access door.  I guess IR really CAN be used to find ghosts or, in this case, perhaps some type of thermal spirit of refractory inspections past?

It got me thinking, have any of you found similar? Perhaps an interesting IR pattern that caught you by surprise, maybe something that wasn’t obvious visually, but jumped right out at you thermally? Share it on our Facebook page and I’ll post it to the InformIR blog as well with a photo credit.
