For Businesses

Your business is your most important asset so protect it with mechanical thermal imaging.


4 reasons for all seasons

Non-Destructive Testing

Accurately assess mechanical items without ever having to dismantle or damage in any way with our infrared imaging survey service.

Active Testing

With mechanical infrared imaging you can inspect anything mechanical whilst in operation, providing in-depth answers into the overall health of the mechanical object.

Faulty Wiring

Although the item is mechanical it will likely require electricity in order to operate specific functions. Therefore, if something affects the wiring then it affects the whole system.


Not only is it important to maintain the health and safety or yourself and employees and colleagues as well, if it something intended to be sold then it has to be assured of safety as well.

Mechanical infrared imaging is, without a doubt, the best way of assessing a piece of mechanical equipment. This is in order to learn what is working well and where any improvements or faults may lie.

There are multiple reasons why mechanical thermal imaging is a great way of assessment. One of the most important reasons for why this service works wonders is that it is a form of non-destructive testing (NDT). What non-destructive testing refers to is that a thermal imaging camera survey doesn’t require that contact is made with the item being surveyed. As well as this, there is no dismantling required or damage caused to the mechanical item. For condition monitoring, infrared imaging will highlight any areas of concern, as well as displaying the areas of ambient temperature too.

Keep the cogs turning with mechanical thermal imaging

Not only can you safely and easily conduct the assessment, but mechanical thermography inspection allows for active testing also. This is incredibly insightful as it provides a better understanding of how the item operates. There is a possibility that it could also unearth unknown issues that haven’t been noticed like an oil or fuel leak. This might not be spotted with just your eyes but wouldn’t get past our thermal imaging leak detection. It also shows any areas that may errors have occurred. This is something that you may not know or realise by checking when it is idle. Another good example of this could the loss of heat, only noticeable during function and with a heat loss survey.

This service works for all mechanical items and Direct Thermography is able to travel to you as well which is just another aspect that makes this service invaluable. Mechanical thermal imaging survey from FM Solutions Group that gets the job done.


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.
