Infrared thermography is the science of acquisition and analysis of thermal data from non-contact non-destructive imaging devices. Infrared radiation is electromagnetic radiation of a wavelength longer than that of visible light, but shorter than that of radio waves. The name means “below red”, red being the color of visible light of longest wavelength.
Thermography is the observation, measurement and recording of heat. All materials emit heat energy in the infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. The quantity of infrared heat emitted is directly comparative to its temperature. The human eye cannot see in the infrared waves: that is why we use thermal equipment (camera). These devices show anomalies and though identify problems. Modern infrared cameras view in real-time, record infrared images and measure the temperatures of target objects quite accurate. Areas for investigation are displayed as hot (red) or cold (blue) in relation to their environment.
Using them on walls or roofs, these instruments can show exterior air infiltration (absence of insulation, cracks, thermal bridges, excess of humidity, water leakages, excess heat in the electric circuits, etc.), creating a thermal chart of the surface.
Our inspectors are certified by the ITC Infrared Training Center of FLIR, accordingly to ASNT regulations. Our high-tech cameras are verified and certified by the manufacturer. The calibration certificate is available upon demand.
