What is an Infrared Scanning?

Infrared Scanning is also known as thermal imaging. This is a non-invasive technique that uses infrared radiation to detect and measure temperature variations on the surface of an object or material.

Infrared Scanning

When it comes to diagnosing problems in buildings, electrical systems, and mechanical equipment, it can be challenging to identify hidden issues. Traditional methods such as visual inspections and manual testing may not reveal problems that lie beneath the surface.

How Does Infrared Scanning Work?

Infrared scanning works by detecting the heat emitted by an object or material. Everything emits some form of infrared radiation, and the amount of radiation emitted is directly proportional to the object’s temperature. An infrared camera captures the infrared radiation emitted by an object and converts it into a visual image that shows the temperature variations on the surface of the object.

Infrared cameras can be used to identify potential problems such as:

  • In buildings: infrared scanning can be used to detect moisture intrusion, air leaks, and energy loss
  • In electrical systems: infrared scan can be used to identify hotspots and potential equipment failures

What Are the Benefits of Infrared Scanning?

1. Non-Invasive

Unlike other testing methods, such as invasive testing or destructive testing, infrared scanning does not damage the object or material being tested. It also does not require the object or material to be taken offline, making it an efficient testing method that can be performed quickly and easily.

2. Cost-effective testing method

By detecting potential problems before they escalate into major issues, infrared scanning can help prevent costly repairs or replacement of equipment or materials. It can also help identify areas where energy loss is occurring, allowing building owners to make energy-saving improvements that can reduce their energy bills.
