You can be assured of getting the best with a thermal imaging survey by Direct Thermography as we hold an impressive 17+ years experience in the industry. We always provide the best thermal imaging survey cost UK residents can get, and that is our best price promise guarantee.
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.
A thermal imaging, or FLIR, camera works by detecting the infrared radiation of a given object, person or animal based on the surface temperature. Due to this, and the fact that this practice is both non-contact and non-invasive it means that there are many applications and uses for this excellent technology.
Thermal imaging cameras have a wide range of applications and uses across an array of different industries and professions. The fact that a thermal imaging camera is able to produce results without any contact or invasion means that you can get easy and accurate answers.
As well as this, it also allows for whatever it is that is being assessed to be in operation during the survey which can be far more insightful than other methods. The industries that we most frequently conduct surveys for are; aerospace, automotive, buildings, chemical, electrical, mechanical, medical, pest control and veterinary.
Within these industries are multiple different applications for the effective use of thermal imaging cameras and their fantastic infrared detection technology.
Yes, a thermal imaging camera can indeed be used during the daytime and daylight hours. The reason for this is because a FLIR camera contains a special lens. What this lens does is that it focuses the heat given off of whatever it is that is being assessed onto a detector that is sensitive to heat. Therefore, a thermal imaging camera is not affected by light and produces equally brilliant results during the day as it would at night too.
Once you are aware that you require a thermal imaging survey then it is time to either pick up the phone to give us a call or fill out the contact for that can be found on every page of this website. We will then arrange a time that is convenient for you to be able to come and provide a free quote for the cost of the service you require. If you have already received a quote from another company, inform us of this for us to beat their price. Then it is time to get down to business, our thermal imaging survey specialists will conduct a thorough survey of whatever you require. Once we are satisfied that we have a comprehensive assessment of the given subject of the survey then we will process the data of this. We provide a report of the survey which outlines the findings of it and explains it in a way that can e understood and that will include the images from the survey too.
A thermal imaging survey will vary in cost, depending on multiple factors. Our service is entirely mobile as we can transport our thermal imaging cameras to wherever they are needed. If you are very far away from on of our offices then this may factor into the cost of your survey. Typically, a thermal imaging survey will be based around a day rate. This is subject to change by factors such as; the selected service, the necessary equipment to complete the survey, the time taken to complete the survey or other factors that are also subject to change.
