Thermal Imaging

Drone thermal inspections consists of Thermography or thermal imaging which is the study of heat distribution. This allows you to visually detect faults or losses, which may otherwise go undetected.  By catching faults early you can prevent problems from developing into serious issues.  We can help.  We can use an Infrared Thermal Imaging Camera (FLIR) with real time imaging capability to investigate and determine the source by analyzing the images and verifying.  This can even be at each construction phase if under construction.

Drone Thermal Imaging

Industrial Plants and Utilities Inspections

  • Identify hot spots within power transmission lines before failure occurs
  • Quickly survey and detect failing cells within a solar array in minutes
  • Detect thermal rise signatures of gearbox brake failure in wind turbines
  • Locate and isolate leaks emanating from buried pipelines
  • Find line blockages in fluid transmission systems above ground
  • Detect thermal patterns and monitor temperatures on boiler tubes
  • Proactively monitor liquid levels in large storage tanks to detect leaks

Commercial Building Inspections

  • Identify and map trapped moisture penetration in roofs
  • Perform energy audit inspections for thermal insulation efficiency
  • Detect thermal hotspots within walls from faulty electrical circuits
  • Take HD aerial images for insurance claims and inspection
  • Inspect residential solar panel installations for defects
  • Detect delamination and spalling defects in concrete structures
  • Map heat flow and prevent thermal bridging due to faulty insulation
  • Perform forensic moisture intrusion inspections of plumbing facilities
  • Detect insulation leaks in HVAC or refrigeration equipment
  • Proactively identify areas of concern for moisture leaks
