How IR Thermography and Defect Scanning Can Enhance your Building Maintenance System
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
Infrared thermography is a technique used to study the building envelope. This technique applied to the identification and mapping of faults allows an inspection approach which classifies defects areas in respect of location, severity and structural effect.
Thermography is a non-destructive technique that provides a thermogram, a thermal image of the target object surface, which in this case is a region of the facade. This inspection, made without physical contact, can reach distances of tens of meters and causes no damage to the element.
The thermogram of a facade allows analyzing the surface temperatures of the elements and materials that compose it. Temperatures are a result of the action of various factors, including the action of climatic agents such as the incidence of the sun and ambient temperature.
