Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspection Applications

infrared block wall scan indicating CMU grouted cells © Dayton Thermal InspectionInfrared technology can be utilized in many applications under the skilled and trained hands of a Dayton Infrared Thermal Inspector.  Many areas and items of concern can be hidden or concealed from sight behind walls, floors, ceilings, paint, etc.  Prior to infrared thermal inspections, the only way to identify and locate these hidden issues was through destructive or invasive investigations (tearing out walls, ceilings, drywall, etc.).  Now we can save you money and time without destroying your commercial building, office, or home!
Infrared Thermal Inspections include the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to ‘see’ thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible to the human eye.  It's the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat and lies just beyond the visible light spectrum.   In the infrared world, everything emits heat.  Even very cold objects, like ice cubes, emit infrared energy.  The higher the object's temperature, the greater the IR radiation emitted.  Infrared imagery allows us to see what our eyes alone cannot. True infrared cameras produce images of thermal energy or "heat" radiation.  Most mechanical and electrical objects and components become hot before they fail.  This makes the infrared camera an extremely cost-effective and valuable diagnostic tool in many diverse applications. As a result, new applications for infrared cameras continually emerge.
Some of the many commercial and residential inspection applications include:
