An object with a temperature above zero Kelvin (-273.15 degrees Celsius) radiates in the infrared spectrum. To determine the parameters of the distribution of temperature fields over the surface of an object, a special device is used — a thermal imager. With its help, an image of an object is obtained in the infrared spectrum and thermograms are built. To date, thermal imagers are the most effective way to control the construction and operation of facilities. If you do not want to buy a thermal imager, you can always rent it. Renting a thermal imager is ideal when the device is needed for a specific task, after which it is no longer needed.
Scope of application of thermal imagers
Defectoscopy of enclosing structures and quality control of construction — quick and effective detection of problem areas of buildings and structures, the choice of the most optimal method that will help eliminate the detected defects. The device will allow you to visually demonstrate the points of heat loss and the presence of moisture on the thermogram.
With the help of a thermal imager, mold formations can be detected. Defects in the thermal insulation of enclosing structures lead to a shift in the “dew point”, i.e. condensation of moisture on building envelopes or on the inner surface of walls or ceilings, which leads to the formation of mold and fungus. Thermal imagers, using data on humidity and temperature inside the room, as well as temperature distributions on internal surfaces, calculate and visualize the distribution of surface humidity. Separately, the most dangerous areas in terms of the formation of mold and fungus are noted.
The thermal imager will also help identify energy losses in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems of buildings and structures, detect defects in thermal insulation and cold bridges, incorrect temperature distribution in rooms, dirt and scale in batteries.
Inspection of pipelines for the detection of breaks. In the event of a suspected rupture in pipelines, usually the only way to detect a rupture is to open the floors. With the help of a thermal imager, it is possible to carry out diagnostics with the exact localization of the emergency area without damaging the structure and minimize the cost of repair work.
In addition, using a thermal imager, you can analyze distribution devices, cable networks, transformer equipment, etc. in order to detect emergency nodes, connections, insulation failures.
