Thermal imaging solutions for building diagnostics
Visualize, localize and diagnose problems
Fast, intuitive, accurate and durable
Missing or damaged insulation, air leaks in exterior walls, moisture, faults in heating and air conditioning systems, and other building deficiencies often result in major economic losses for residential and commercial building owners and renters. Thermal imaging can quickly detect hidden problems so the right repair decisions can be made.
Detection of water leaks in subway tunnels
Water leaks in tunnels can cause electrical short circuits and other hazards that endanger the safety of the tunnel and traffic. The traditional inspection method is daily visual inspection, but this is very time-consuming and, depending on the quality of the human eye, defects can easily be overlooked. With the handheld thermal imaging camera, inspectors can more quickly and accurately locate leaks for further analysis and remediation.
Air leak detection on doors, windows and walls
Air leaks often cause problems with ventilation systems, and as a result, can lead to a poor indoor climate. When cold air enters through a leak in the structure, it cools the temperature of the surface, which can be detected with the thermal imaging camera. Thermal imaging camera also help to detect thermal bridges, insufficient insulation and undetected sources of heat or cold. Weak points are localized rapidly and accurately and can thus be eliminated quickly.
Monitoring of underfloor heating and sanitary installations
Thermal imaging is a perfect tool for detecting clogged pipes or hidden piping problems. Even if the pipes of the heating system are laid under the floor or in a wall, the heat radiates through the surface and the pattern can be easily detected with a thermal imaging camera. A regular thermal testing schedule is recommended to ensure the performance and safe operation of the heating system during the winter. A suitable thermal imaging camera is the optimal tool to perform the analysis quickly and efficiently.
Detection of perforations in window sealing strips
In this figure, the heat exchange at the junctions of glass and window frame can be clearly seen. Temperature reading shows -2.8 degrees, indicating an air leak. On-site inspection confirmed that the window weatherstrip was damaged and should be repaired as soon as possible.
