Thermal imaging of electrical equipment is used to detect defects caused by loose or deteriorated connections, short circuits, overloads, load imbalances or faulty, mismatched or improperly-installed components.
Infrared thermal imaging of a flat or low sloped insulated roof is used to locate thermal patterns on the roof surface that are consistent with wet insulation beneath the membrane.
Infrared inspection of rotating equipment detects exceptions that are usually caused by friction due to improper lubrication, misalignment, worn components or mechanical loading anomalies.
Infrared thermal imaging is used to locate thermal signatures in the building envelope consistent with potential problems such as air loss, damaged/missing insulation, or structural concerns.
