Whether you know what thermal imaging services require or its the first time you have considered using a thermal imaging service, our experts are available over the phone or online to give free advice and quotes.
Got an idea for a unique thermal imaging project? We are excited to help you realise your dreams.
Here at Direct Thermography, we are all too aware of just how fantastic the infrared FLIR technology is. A thermal imaging camera saves time, money and effort for a wide range of services. The thermal imaging uses are also astounding, which is why we want to share it with you too. By making use of our thermography inspection using infrared cameras and thermal imaging equipment, you’re assured of getting the best. However, just because you are getting the best, it won’t break the bank as these services are very cost-effective.
Our thermal imaging services have the ability to highlight and diagnose many different issues. These can be found in a domestic household and everyday life. As well as this, they are also found in commercial settings and across many industries. Infrared thermography gets the infrared imaging results you desire from our thermographic inspections services. Therefore, it shows that our thermographic inspections are nothing short of impressive.
We use our thermal imaging equipment to produce the best possible and most cost-effective thermographic surveys. Infrared thermography can be applied to both electrical and mechanical scenarios. Infrared inspection can also be used to assess buildings and find building envelopes where heat is allowed to escape. Using infrared cameras for thermal imaging surveys, especially on electrical installations, can allow you to conduct predictive maintenance before a proper problem occurs. All of this with just infrared imaging!
A thermal imaging camera works by evaluating a given object by scanning it for infrared radiation. There will be typical levels of infrared (heat) radiation from certain objects. This can be things such as the inner workings of structures. It also extends to equipment, or even in medical and veterinary scenarios as well. If, for any reason, there is an abnormal amount of heat being given off by whatever it is that is being assessed, this is an indicator. As well as this, a lack of heat where there should be normally, indicates an issue has arisen and requires being rectified.
Our thermography services get the job done right
But that is not where a thermal imaging camera’s usefulness ends. They are so precise that the exact area or even component that is operating incorrectly will be displayed. This is so that you can accurately tackle and rectify with the correct resolutions.
There are multiple things that make thermal imaging cameras and our infrared thermography service so good and useful. One thing that makes them better than other conventional methods of assessment is that it is non-contact. This means that physical contact with whatever it is that is being surveyed is not required. It means that if equipment is being viewed, it can be assessed whilst it is in function. This makes being able to identify the location of the problem’s origin substantially easier. It also gives a more comprehensive view of the overall health throughout the function cycle.
Our thermal imaging services can save the day!
Another thing that makes using a FLIR camera superior to other methods is its non-invasive aspect. Similarly that it’s a non-contact way of assessment, non-invasive means that nothing has to be removed or dismantled. A truly fantastic aspect of conducting our thermography service. This is a particular godsend for medical and veterinary applications of thermal imaging technology. It allows you to view a person or animal’s ailment. As well as this, it displays how well their recovery is going post-treatment. This is done by simply pointing the thermal imaging camera at the patient and then gathering the data.
As a thermal imaging camera is small and handheld it also means that if you require an assessment then you don’t have to account for excess accommodations. If there is enough space for our technicians to stand and operate the small portable camera, that is enough. This is how we can provide you with the answers you seek and the results you desire too.
When thermal imaging can be applied to things that include leak detection, heat loss survey, underfloor heating survey, solar panel inspection and thermography inspections of both commercial and domestic properties it is easy to see why so many people want to make use of this brilliant technology and our thermal imaging services.
The applications of thermal imaging are extensive too and can be found to be used in industries including aerospace, automotive, buildings, chemical, electrical, environmental, mechanical, medical, pest control and veterinary, so the sky is the limit for ways in which a thermal imaging service can help you.
When it comes to thermal imaging, this can be applied to anything in almost any scenario, as long as it has something to do with the emission of heat. A thermal imaging camera, therefore, is the best way of learning about the immediate environment and how heat that is generated behaves and any anomalies that have been created. For a full list of all the fantastic ways thermal imaging can be used, you need only view our services and applications to learn the ways in which thermal imaging can improve your home and work life today.
A thermal imaging survey is completed with the use of a thermal imaging camera to learn about your surrounding infrared/heat radiation levels. This is achieved through a special sensor contained within the thermal imaging camera that allows the camera to view and compile the infrared radiation. This information is relayed, in real time, to a screen on the rear of the infrared camera where the physical view of what is being assessed is viewed through a colour spectrum whereby different temperatures will be displayed based on colour. For example, if something is exceedingly hot then it will be displayed as a deep red colour and that is how you know it is particularly hot.
This is a nice and simple answer as “FLIR” stands for Forward Looking InfraRed. Not only is it a nice abbreviation, but also easily and accurately explains the function of a thermal imaging camera as well. As there is a lens in a thermal imaging camera, much the same as a standard camera, that is how it is able to assess something for it’s infrared radiation levels. The lens and sensor will be found towards the front of the device which is pointed toward whatever is being viewed, before the information is relayed to the screen for viewing and assessment.
When something is analysed by a thermal imaging camera, the visible landscape that we can see with our eyes is converted into a colour spectrum image so that it becomes easy to view and distinguish the differing levels of infrared radiation. On the camera’s display screen you will be able to see a range of colours that go from blue hues through yellows and oranges, all the way to deep reds.
If something displays as blue then this will indicate that something is cooler and not subject to heat as much. Things that are yellow and then also orange indicates a rise in temperature where things have become affected by heat but are not particularly hot. Finally, if something displays as red then this means that it is, without a doubt, hot and influenced by a high level of infrared radiation.
A thermal imaging camera is not dissimilar to a normal camera, apart from the fact that a FLIR camera can see infrared radiation that you wouldn’t see with a normal camera or your eyes. Through the use of specialist sensors within the unit, this is how a thermal imaging camera is able to view the heat within the surroundings and can then translate this information to a display screen on the back of the camera allowing you to diagnose and assess.
