Thermal Imaging, using a high resolution Infrared Camera is a technologically advanced, non destructive diagnostic service. It is unparalleled as a diagnostic tool for non destructive assessment in a wide range of applications. Moisture Intrusion, Energy Surveys or Audits, Electrical defect scans and Predictive Maintenance are a few of the IR services offered. The information on this page is assembled to give you some background on the capabilities of this new technology.
This cost of IR diagnostics depends upon the application and whether it is included as part of an overall inspection. When you call to ask about your inspection or schedule one, I will be happy to discuss the application and cost of this service with you at that time.
Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to "see" and "measure" thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye; it's the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Unlike visible light, in the infrared world, everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. Even very cold objects, like ice cubes, emit infrared. The higher the object's temperature, the greater the IR radiation emitted. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot. Infrared thermography cameras produce images of invisible infrared or "heat" radiation and provide precise non-contact temperature measurement capabilities. Nearly everything gets hot before it fails, making infrared cameras extremely cost-effective, valuable diagnostic tools in many diverse applications. And as industry strives to improve manufacturing efficiencies, manage energy, improve product quality, and enhance worker safety, new applications for infrared cameras continually emerge.
