Thermal Infrared Imaging Technology

Print PDF
  • An infrared camera produces an image in the viewfinder; similar to that produced by your typical digital camera, with one major difference.
  • The image produced by the digital camera is based on light while the image from the thermal imaging camera is based on temperature differentials. Below, is a picture of a wall taken by a conventional digital camera. Beside it, is the same picture taken by a thermal infrared camera.

  • A photograph of a wet wall taken with a digital camera will show you texture and colour however, the thermal imaging camera will show what's behind the surface of the wall based on the differential in temperature between the wall and any water trapped behind.
  • The images can then be downloaded electronically into our job files and/or sent via email to our perspective client along with a detailed report indicating what the camera has revealed.
  • A picture is worth a thousand words, infrared thermography is the only diagnostic technology that lets you instantly visualize and verify water penetration through thermal performance.
  • The resulting damage from a water escape is obvious, however, the source of that water escape is not always as obvious. Traditional non-invasive moisture meters can only read surfaces that have been exposed to moisture, water trapped behind the wall surface but not touching it can go undetected.
  • Thermal Infrared Imaging Technology enables us to accurately trace the path the water has taken therefore limiting the damage required to expose wet areas. This type of inspection enables a household or business to return to its regular routine faster and with minimal inconvenience.
  • The use of Thermal Infrared Imaging Technology will result in faster, more efficient and cost effective determination of the presence of moisture, its path and the source. This information results in more efficient, less intrusive removal of moisture affected areas as well as a more efficient deployment of drying equipment. All these factors result in improved results with lower cost.
  • An additional and extremely important benefit of thermal imaging technology is the reduction of liability due to hidden and undetected moisture trapped in obscure areas. We are very cognisent of the damage and dangers mould can cause if moisture goes undetected. Thermal infrared technology gives us a vital tool in the elimination of this potentially costly situation, both in terms of health and property damage repairs.
  • By properly identifying the sources of moisture and the root cause of the moisture issue we can eliminate the moisture with specific isolated tear out or calculated structural drying.
