Infrared inspections can be used for detection and measurement of emitted thermal energy (heat). During our infrared thermal scans and testing, nfrared cameras translate the invisible infrared IR spectrum into a visual format, or thermal image. Every material has a unique thermal signature and when moisture, heat, cold, or wood destroying insects are introduced into the structure the thermal signature changes. The changes can be subtle or dramatic but with this incredible thermal image scanning technology the thermal signatures are detectable where they wouldn't be able to be seen with the naked eye. Other components that generate heat that can be tested include; electrical, motors (electrical), bearings, gears, couplings and even horses and other livestock.
Thermal image scanning technology can be used to evaluate residential, commercial and industrial structures and applications. Infrared is a completly non invasive testing tool that can quickly help discern where there are suspected issues. This can help to limit the areas where time consuming further evaluation and destructive means are needed.
