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.
