With the continuous development of technology in various disciplines, thermography is a game changer for a 40 year inspection. It allows us to check the insulation of the old building, electrical abnormalities, energy assessment, and more in a non-invasive process and in real-time.
Thus, this technology is beneficial when spotting issues and solving them immediately to acquire a 40/50 year recertification.
During the safety inspection, the assessor may use from among these devices.
- Spot Radiometer
The simplest instrument for thermography measures radiation one spot at a time through a simple meter reading that shows the temperature of a given area. The inspector then compiles the data and notes the differences in the temperature.
- Thermal Line Scanner
A thermal line scanner shows thermal variations along a line. The thermogram shows the line scan superimposed over a picture of the panned area.
- Thermal Imaging Camera
As the name suggests, this device can produce a 2-dimensional thermal picture of an area showing heat leakage. Contrary to spot radiometers and thermal line scanners, a thermal imaging camera shows the complete detail of the inspection.
