Thermal imaging technology helps us monitor and
identify the conditions of buildings. This technology helps us to pre plan
preventative maintenance solutions on heating and insulation. In todays
steadily increasing climate change we endeavor to stay ahead as one of
the leading companies using Thermal Imaging Services to help explain and
give advice to our clients on the possibilities of changing the heat loss
problems they are experiencing and for them to become more energy efficient.
Energy Loss Detection
Infrared thermography is a powerful and non-invasive technique used
to monitor and diagnose the condition of all types of buildings.
The Flir system infrared camera enables us to carry out the following
(a) Pre planned preventative maintenance on M&E systems.
Detect areas susceptible to mould build up.
Find badly insulated areas of a building.
Find leaks in underground pipes.
Supervise new constructions.
The benefits of using infrared for architects are to demonstrate areas
of possible Energy Savings; Minimisation of repair, Cost Savings and the
M&E system can be fully operational during the infrared survey. By
highlighting areas where heat is being lost a client can take measures
to insulate those therefore save on fuel and be more efficient on their
As surveys can be carried out whilst all equipment is operational, during
normal working hours everyday operations are not disrupted.
Thermal images of the affected building are generated from invisible
thermal radiation using our thermal camera. The camera we use is the Flir
Therma Cam. Most components that use or transmit power get hot before failure
and thermal imaging can instantly locate such hot spots prior to an electrical
or mechanical failure.
Infrared can also be used to detect abnormalities to buildings which
result in energy loss and this can help catch minor building faults before
they become major areas of concern. As Inspections can be safely carried
out while electrical and mechanical systems are in operation we can assess
the performance of switch gear, breakers, fuses, electrical panels, transformers
and distribution boards.
Mechanical targets for hot spots include boilers, pumps, pulley systems,
heating pipes and compressors.
The survey report may be generated in a clear and concise format allowing
the customer to assess maintenance costs against energy loss.
Flir ThermaCam captures the thermographic properties of the image at
50Hz making it possible to scan moving objects.
A state of the art, uncooled microbolometer allows us to measure temperature
differences as small as 0.08C allowing easy identification of heat anomalies.
The outstanding, noise free high resolution images 320 x 240 pixels offering
more than 76000 individual measuring points per image at a refresh rate
An LCD screen gives continuous information about the status of status
of specific camera functions including freezing and storing of images.
The images are stored as full radiometric Jpegs.
Images can also be transferred using the enhanced connectivity option
which features a digital USB link connection. Automated report generation
function for downloading into the new ThermaCam reporter software allowing
post-analysis and the production of clear professional inspection reports.
The feedback received from our customers has demonstrated the benefits
of using the thermal imaging camera are as follows:
Early Warnings Signs on Equipment Failure
Savings on Downtime of Equipment
Helps Maintaining Running Equipment in Power Stations
Eco Friendly for Residential Houses
