Thermal Imaging in Process Control & R&D
Thermal Imaging in Process Control & R&D...

If you are doing electrical infrared inside a manufacturing operation and not doing process control and quality control infrared work -you are missing a gigantic opportunity! You are literally walking by more work than you can do. Almost every manufacturing process can be examined and improved using IR -especially ones that use heating or cooling in the process.

One might think that the only way to know whether the grouted cells, bond beams, insulation, and other components of a Masonry Block Wall (CMU-Concrete Masonry Unit) are properly placed is to open the wall with a hammer or drill, where the grout or insulation is supposed to be and see if it is there. But this test is inadequate because the sample is much too small (often less than one ten-thousandth of a percent). Also, the tiny sample does not show where blockages (to the proper filling of insulation) and/or too much grout exists. The only other effective option is to X-ray the walls or tear them down -which are both extremely expensive.
 
BlockWallScanIR™ infrared testing method can be performed at any time during the construction process without interrupting any other trades or affecting the progress of the rest of the building.

RoofScanIR - Part 1
Why use Infrared Thermography on Flat Roofs
By using infrared thermography, we find the trapped moisture and mark the wet areas so that repairs can be made surgically. This can save you money because you may not have to replace the roof as soon. By marking paint directly on the roof, repair areas can be seen by anyone standing on the roofs after the survey is performed.

How it works…
During the day, the sun radiates energy onto the roof and into the roof substrate, and then at night, the roof radiates the heat back into outer space. This is called radiational cooling. Areas of the roof that are of a higher mass (wet) retain this heat longer than that of the lower mass (dry) areas. Infrared imagers can detect this heat and "see" the warmer, higher mass areas, during the "window" of uneven heat dissipation. Heat loss and other IR services can be performed at the same time.

By using the information generated by a RoofScanIR™ report, the owner’s roofing professional can recommend cost-effective removal and replacement of wet components and draw documents to prepare an adequate roofing substrate to receive a recover installation to extend the satisfactory roofing system’s service life.

MoistureFindIR - Part 1
Why Should You Employ Infrared Technology to Detect Moisture?

Infrared cameras are considered one of the most advanced and accurate tools known for determining and documenting moisture damage in buildings. Results are instant and the thermal images are easy to understand, share, and can serve as irrefutable proof in lawsuits.

Excessive moisture destroys structural integrity and creates huge, expensive problems like mold and mildew which can cause serious health concerns. Often, these problems are not obvious until it’s too late so if you can discover them early through infrared technology, you can save yourself a lot of money and increase your building’s lifespan dramatically.

Two big advantages of infrared thermography are that it’s non-destructive and unobtrusive. You don’t need people traipsing through your home tearing down sections of walls hunting for damage. With infrared, large and inaccessible areas can be surveyed quickly and efficiently. Moisture problems in ceilings can be readily seen even when no stains are present.

Traditional moisture surveys are very time consuming, but with today’s cutting-edge infrared technology they can be completed in a fraction of the time. After performing a cursory survey, our MoistureFindIR™ thermographers can often make an immediate assessment.
