What is Infrared Thermography?
Infrared thermographic cameras produce images of invisible infrared or "heat" radiation and provide precise non-contact temperature measurement capabilities. Thermal or infrared energy is light which is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye: it's the part of the electromagnetic spectrum we perceive as "heat". Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement device to "see" and "measure thermal energy emitted from an object. Unlike visible light, in the infrared world, everything with a temperature above absolute zero (minus 459 degrees F) emits heat. Even very cold objects, like ice cubes emit infrared. The higher the object's temperature, the more infrared energy is emitted. See what secrets your building is hiding from you.
See beyond what your eye can see.
Most electrical failures can be detected before they occur. Heat is generated when electrical connections begin to loosen. With our thermal imaging equipment we can find potential connection problems before they happen. By finding small problems before they become serious, you can schedule down time based on your timeline, not by surprise – ultimately saving you time, money and headaches! Each scan or thermal image undertaken by PRECISION is followed up by a full report, showing a possible cause and a suggested repair actions.
What do undetected problems look like?
These pictures are from hot spots, not detected early enough, which have resulted in signficant damage. As a result, the repairs were substancial, both in down time and cost.
