1. IR thermography to find the leakage point
Thermal imaging cameras are inspection tools that can be used to quickly find and check for leaks in pipes, as well as inspect water pipes laid under floors or drywall. Infrared thermal imaging cameras can easily detect the true state of pipe heat radiating through the surface. A typical example is finding the location of a leak in a floor heating system. With the help of thermal imaging cameras, leaks in the heating system can be found by maintenance personnel and repaired in time. The precise location of leaks with industrial thermal imaging can avoid unnecessary excavation and save money.
2. IR thermography detects building structure
Thermal imaging cameras are the quickest and most effective inspection tool for finding building defects. It can be used to inspect the conformity of building structures and can quickly convert problems such as heat loss, humidity and air leakage into visible color thermal images.
3. IR thermography detects the dryness of the house
To speed up the drying process of buildings, drying equipment is often required. The heat generated by drying equipment can evaporate moisture from walls and other areas. Areas that are still wet can be easily detected by thermal imaging cameras and appear as "cold spots" in the infrared image.
4. IR thermography detects air leakage points
A common method used to detect air leak points is by measuring the air exchange rate and employing a detection process known as a "damp". During this process, negative pressure is created in the house. At this point, the pressure outside is greater than the pressure inside, so air will enter from the poorly sealed area. Thermal imaging cameras can quickly detect moving airflow, so areas with weak seals can be easily identified, and problems can be solved before the next step is completed, thereby avoiding potential construction problems and turning into costly problems.
5. IR thermography to find roof leaks
Evaluation of roof leakage systems is also one of the common applications of thermal imaging cameras. Water retains heat for longer than normal roofing materials, and when the roof cools down at night, areas with water can be easily detected by industrial thermal imaging due to their higher temperature than other areas: just repair the roof. Leaking areas without having to replace the entire roof saves a lot of money.
6. IR thermography building renovation
Thermal imaging cameras can also provide invaluable information on the renovation of buildings and historic buildings. Architectural frames covered in stucco become clearly visible in infrared images. It can also be used to tell if a bare frame is useful. The IR thermography can detect the specific position of the early wall plaster falling off, and take timely and effective protection measures.
7. IR thermography avoids mold invasion
Mold can damage building structures and, if present in living or office areas, can also cause health hazards and allergy symptoms. Moisture areas where moisture from the outside air can form dew droplets are the best prerequisites for fungal growth and rapid colonization. Minerals in walls, wallpaper and paint are the best breeding grounds for mold. Infrared thermal imaging cameras with special dew point visualization software are used for automatic detection, and color alarms are given to problem areas, and potential problems can be identified early on the inspection site.
