Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging is a type of photography where images taken are made up of heat signatures rather than light. We use thermal imaging to find out where heat is escaping from a building. We complete a full report including detailed images of the surveyed area to show you exactly which areas of the building need to be improved.

How does it Work?

Thermography can be used in any process where the temperature of the object gives an indication of its state. It is a non-contact technique enabling inspections to be made whilst a system is in operation and under load, therefore reducing time. Potentially dangerous observations can also be made at a safe distance and it is often possible to carry them out with safety fences still in place.

Specific examples of thermal imaging application:

Building Analysis

  • Heat losses
  • Moisture analysis
  • Roof investigation
  • Cable detection
  • Pipe corrosion
  • Leakage direction of water lines
  • Floor heating

Engine Industry

  • Temperature distribution of engine components
  • Monitoring of bearings
  • Seals and clutches
  • Heat formation through friction
  • Mechanical Systems
  • Evaluate cold storage cooling losses
  • Identify insulation leaks in refrigeration equipment
  • Detect thermal patterns on boiler tubes
  • Furnace inspections


  • Temperature determination of critical components
  • Prevention of heat accumulation
  • Component ageing

Power Supply

  • Inspection of high-voltage transmission lines and transformers
  • Corrosion of cables
  • Switching units
