Moisture Infrared Inspection Scans
At different times of the day and night, building components show differences in temperature because of differences in mass, voids, moisture content and/or heat loss because heat from thermal changes radiates from these areas at different rates. During thermal transient conditions, we scan the walls with a sensitive infrared camera to detect the sources of heat and record them for later analysis. Since our level II infrared thermographer uses real-time imaging and recording IR equipment, they can immediately determine if and exactly where, problems exist. We then record matching visual imagery with a digital video tape recorder and/or photographic camera for reference purposes.
Excessive moisture destroys the structural integrity and creates huge, expensive problems like mold and mildew which can cause serious health concerns. Often, these problems are not obvious until it’s too late. So if you can discover them early through infrared technology, you can save yourself a lot of money and increase your building’s lifespan dramatically.
Level II Thermographer
Steve Mirowski is a Level II Thermographer. Hiring a Level II Thermographer and an infrared scan helps our customers gain advanced theory and applications of infrared thermography in the preventive maintenance, quality assurance, condition monitoring and nondestructive testing of materials. Level II focuses on radiometric temperature measurement and how taking accurate temperatures improves the diagnosis and interpretation of thermal situations.
