Infrared and Thermography Testing
Maintaining acceptable temperatures in building (heading and cooling) uses a large proportion of total energy consumption worldwide. When well insulated, a building.
- Is energy-efficient, thus saving the owner money
- Provides more uniform temprature throughout the space, thus producing a more comportable occupant environment when outside tempratures are extremely cold or hot.
- Has minimal recuring expense. Unlike heating and cooling equipment, insulation is permanent and does not require maintanance, upkeep, or adjustment. Infrared thermography is the easiest and quickest method to detect energy waste, moisture and electeical issues in buildings. An infrared camera shows exactly where the problems are and helps focus the inspectors' attention allowing him or her to properly diagnose areas with energy loss.
HVAC & Plumbing
A "whole building" approach is needed to maximize energy effiiciency of a building or a home. Indoor environment can be compromised by poor insulation, poorly sealed windows and doors, inadequate or poorly sealed ductwork, plumbing leaks, or other plumbing issues relating to Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems.
An infrared camera is a practical tool that helps building professionals see the big picture. With FLIR infrared cameras for builders, it is easy to scan an entire building and see the relation of HVAC system, building envelope, and plumbing issues
Thermal Imaging Simplify Your Work
From start to finish, infrared cameras can help you simplify your restoration and remediation jobs. Advanced features help you quickly scan large areas to assess what is restorable. An infrared camera helps you pinpoint water instrusion, find moisture beneath the surface, and document dryness with accuracy and confidence.
Energy Auditing & Home Inspection
Air Tightness and Thermal Imaging testing are important quality control measures when building or renovating a house. Heat losses in buildings can account for up to 50% of the total energy consumption and comes from air leakage through chimneys, attics, wall vents and badly sealed windows/doors, etc.
Property & Facility Management
Infrared thermography is a powerful & non-invasive method of monitoring and troubleshooting the conditions of buildings.
All new buildings must meet air tightness requirements of the Building Regulations. By reducing air leakage, you will obtain a better comfort in the building. The building can also be heated more effciently to conserve energy and save money.
Stop Guessing - Start Seeing
Infrared thermography operates by measuring the infrared energy of any objects surface and producing a detailed visual image showing its temperature profile.Since IR operates without physical contact, it gives buildings operating integrity. While many borderline problem areas typically remain undetected during an off-line physical inspection, they can easily be seen using infrared.
Aside from detecting heat and energy loss in structures, it has proved to be an accurate & effective tool in today's facilities predictive maintenance (PdM) programs.
Moisture & Restoration
Whether you need to restore property from moisture, mold, or fire damage, you know the value of having comprehensive and accurate information at your fingertips. Insurance companies need information fast to start claims work.
our customers need information so they can get their property restored. And you need information so you can make estimation and reporting trouble free.
Electrical & Mechanical Applications
The use of thermography has revolutionized predictive maintenance inspection programs for virtually all types of industries .
A thermal imaging camera is & reliable non contact instrument which is able to scan and visualize the temprature distribution of entire surfaces of machinery and electrical equipment quickly and accurately. Thermography programs have contributed to substantial cost savings for our customers around the world.
At manufacturing facilities thermal imaging cameras are used for inspecting countless number of production equipment and components as well as the complete elecrical power supply system.
An infrared image including accurate temperature data provides the maintainance expert with important information about the condition of the inspected object. Inspections are done with the production process in full operation. In many cases the use of thermal imaging camera can help optimize the production process itself.
For utilities, failure is not an option. That's why infrared thermography has become the core of utility predictive maintaince programs around the world. Utilities depend on thermography to avoid costly failures in power generation, transmission and distribution as infrared cameras help find anomalies before trouble strikes and service is affected.
A bad connection on a transmission line shows up as a clear hot spot in the infrared image. A bad connection results in the current flow generates excessive temprature that can easily be detected with infrared thermography. If not attended to this connection might break, resulting in loss of power.
Some Examples of mechnical equipment where themography is used:
- Pumps (overheated connctions, fuse problems, overloaded electrical cables etc)
- Process valves (Open, closed, leakage)
- Storage tanks (sludge levels)
- Pipelines (Check if and where there are anomalies, for example locate build up of scale etc)
- Motors (overheating bearings, misalignment, overheated windings)
- Conveyor belts (Overheated bearings)
- Furnace inspections (with a special camera designed to "see through flames" for high temprature industrial furnace applications, ideal for monitoring all tupes of furnaces, heaters and boilers)
Detect Problem Areas Before The Real Problems Occur
In production plants, office facilities , hospitals or hotels, an infrared camera instantly makes hot spots visible on a clear thermal image . You can scan electrical cabinets and components and survey multiple wires and connctions to get an instant picture of potential trouble. Detect the problem area and repair it before real problems occur. Common elecrical targets are fuses, electrical panels, bolted connections and switchgear.
- Primary power source i.e outdoor high voltage switchyard
- Low voltage installations i.e. breaker panels, faulty elecrical outlets/wall sockets
- Fuse Panels
- Motor control Centers (MCC)
- Elecrical Cabinets
Gas findir Cameras for Safe Gas Detection
Refineries require state of the art technology to achive results that are safe for the environment and safe for business. In fact our GasFindIR cameras have seen developed together with oil industries and American Petroleum Institute (API) to meet their requirements for detecting and minimizing gas leaks.
Repair Leaking Components Before It's Too Late
The use of infrared cameras has already become a standard practice in many oil companies. It's a proactive way to identify sources of volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions and repair leaking components before it is too late. By using the most advanced VOC detection you will improve safety and productivity and minimize emissions.
Petrochemical & Refineries
In refineries and other petrochemical facilities, equipment failure can lead to lost profits and even potential injury. What you can't see, can definitely hurt you.
