A thermal imaging camera, or infrared/IR camera as it is also known, is a handheld camera device with a visual display. The thermographic camera detects and measures the level of infrared radiation that is emanating from objects. It does this by converting the thermal energy into visible light on the built-in display screen so that it can be analysed and interpreted.
The display that is built into the device will be used to convey the layout of the radiation and uses colour to point out the locations of heat anomalies. The image that is produced on the screen of a thermal imaging camera is called a thermogram and the process of interpreting the image is what is known as thermography. If an area that should not be hot appears on the display as a deep red then it is in fact hot and suggests that something is wrong. Similarly, if something registers as blue on the visual display then this indicates a complete lack of heat and also highlights where a potential issue may have occurred.
A thermal imaging camera is very precise and will be able to pinpoint the exact location of where there is heat, or where there should be and is not, which means that there are many uses for this fantastic technology and brilliant service.
You may find yourself very surprised as we now go through some of the uses for a thermal imaging survey and just how many applications the service of thermography has.
One of the most obvious ways that a thermal imaging survey can be of use is for completing heat loss surveys of residential and commercial properties. As well as this, a thermal imaging survey will be able to easily and quickly ascertain any issues with central heating within a property, including underfloor heating surveys too. Otherwise, there are multiple different industries that can benefit and save time and money with the accurate results of a thermal imaging survey. The automotive industry, especially the mechanical side of things, is benefitted greatly from our thermographic service. Instead of having to strip a vehicle of parts in order to find the root of the problem that is trying to be resolved, a thermographic survey will highlight the problem without having to extensively search for it. This is very similar also to medical applications for infrared technology, the time that is saved on inaccurate guesswork or misdiagnosis not only means that someone can receive treatment for the correct ailment sooner but it could also be the difference between life and death! It is the same for its use for veterinary purposes, everyone wants the best for their pet and if something is wrong with that pet then you want it resolved with speed. With thermography, that is a reality and your furry friend can be on the mend in a flash.
After all of these fantastic applications we have listed and the many services that we offer for conducting thermal imaging surveys you can find out today just how much thermography can help you so don’t delay and contact us today.
