mould inspection with infrared identifies moisture

How does infrared work?

All objects have a surface temperature and features with a void or water for example a damp wall, will have slightly different temperature, but temperature is not visible to the naked eye, infrared camera shows us the temperature image to detect problems.

Where delamination occurs, often cause by water, a hidden void is created beneath the surface, and that causes a slightly different temperature profile, and although invisible to us, it is revealed with our infrared camera.

Kelcroft's infrared imaging is fast, accurate to 0.01 degC, non-destructive test (NDT) method that pin points problems during the inspection.

It's a line of sight test, therefore any obstacles may prevent or limit the infrared inspection.
