Freedom Restoration offers the latest technology in infrared inspections (Thermal Imaging) for a wide range of applications and industries.
Thermal Imaging: Proactive Monitoring
First of all, this is an extremely powerful method of proactively monitoring and troubleshooting of electrical, mechanical to structural systems which may have problems that remain undetected using standard visual inspection. We use the latest technology to locate and identify problems not visible to the eye.
Furthermore, thermal images are visual displays of the amount of infrared energy given off or transmitted by a certain object. Thermography makes it possible to see something without visible illumination. Areas can be observed or measured that are normally invisible to the eye. When viewed with this high tech camera, warm objects stand out well against cooler backgrounds.
Thermography is one of the most cost effective methods of determining faults in all electrical, electronic and mechanical equipment for all types of properties whether it be commercial or residential. The techniques are used by building construction technicians which indicates heat leaks in faulty thermal insulation. In addition, it can use the results of a thermography scan to improve the efficiency of heating and air-conditioning units.
Also, the process detects problems before they become serious. It revents sudden and costly disruptions due to emergency repairs. Energy-conscious builders have long been turning to thermal imaging to locate heat leaks in houses. The technology can also be used to locate latent moisture / condensation in plumbing, HVAC systems, roofing, energy leaks in electrical panels and the potential for ice dams behind walls. For builders that also do remodeling, infrared testing can even help detect pest infestation.
How thermal imaging works for you
Especially relevant, the higher the temperature of an object, the higher the level of energy it radiates – the “hotter” it looks on an image. Most noteworthy, a thermal imaging camera measures the energy levels and creates a colored picture with color values that distinguish hot from cold signatures.
Benefits of thermal imaging:
- First, reduces down time. There is no need to shutdown operational systems during a thermal audit allowing production to continue as normal.
- Saves money. Early detection helps work planning before more serious problems or damage occurs.
- Fast and accurate. Quickly scan and measure accurately the temperature distribution of entire surfaces of machinery and electrical equipment under normal load conditions. No need for lengthy preparation or pre-inspection work.
- Totally non-invasive process and non-destructive. No physical contact is involves. Consequently there is no potential for damage to the systems or equipment.
- Reduces the potential for serious health and safety issues to occur. Early detection of problems will reduce the potential for injury to staff and risk of fire.
- Finally, it revolutionized predictive maintenance inspection programs. By detecting problems and scheduling repairs before a major failure occurs, productivity, profitability and workplace safety are all increased.
