Kelcroft helps you idendify problems and find faults using infrared survey for buildings and electrical systems. Our infrared survey (also known as thermography) scans the objects temperature to reveal hidden information not visible to the human eye.


Kelcroft helps diagnose faults and find defects using the latest infrared technology, infrared imaging or thermography is an invaluable tool to revealed critical information that's not visible to the human eye. We rapidly detect faults and defects avoiding costly downtime or service interuptions.

We use Fluke infrared imager with high resolution chip 0.01 degC providing high resolution and accurancy.

This rapid scanning tool can be used to diagnose a range of building defects, moisture and mould problems, energy leakage, including:

  1. commissioning
  2. electrical
  3. buildings
  4. roofing
  5. water piping

Thermal imaging is the tool to investigate building structures, energy systems, air conditioning, electrical systems, motors, switchgear, busbars, and conduct predictive maintenance inspections, call Kelcroft experts today.

The temperature of an object, or part of an object reveals information, for example electrical connections in good condition have the same temperature. However, poor connection causes localised heating, our infrared camera is used to search for those hot spots, so the connection can be repaired before the power failure, or before the electrical fire starts.

Infrared for Electrical Commissioning

Thermal scanning a switchboard, electrcial motors, etc. after commissioning can instantly detect loose connections, so the connection can be repaired immediately, saving time and money.

The result is instant, no processing, no delay, the image its captured live, and it can be saved on memory stick to incorporate into a written report.

Infrared for Electrical Installations

Thermal scanning an electrical system is a non-contact method to check the integrity of live electrical cables, busbars, busduct and connections without interupting the power supply to check each connection manually saving time.

Poor connections at cable joints, switches, busbars, bustducts, etc. cause heat and increasing temperature which cannot be seen with the human eye, but can be viewed only with our infrared thermal images.

The result is instant, no processing, no delay, the image its captured live, and it can be saved on memory stick to incorporate into a written report.

Infrared Inspection of Electrical installation, cabling, panels, and busducts.

Infrared for Buildings

Thermal scanning detects the temperature differences of the building components detecting faults which cannot be seen with the human eye, but can be viewed only with our infrared thermal image scanner.

Concealed defects such as delamination of tiling, screed, plaster, or roof membrane can idendified using our infra-red camera.

Infrared for Roofing

It is an invaluable tool, ArchSD specify the infrared method for new roof membrane leakage testing.

Water seepage a common problem in buildings, thermal scanning can "view" the source of problems, to help track and identify the source of water leakage, moisture and damp problems.

And the result is instant, no processing, and no delay, the image its captured live, and the image can be saved on memory stick to incorporate into report.

Infrared for Coil Inspection

Infrared helps inspection of the operation of coils in action, including refrigeration and air conditioning systems.

And the result is instant, no processing, no delay, the image its captured live, and can be saved on memory stick and incorporated into report.

Infrared for Water Piping Locating

Infrared helps locating concealed water piping inside the wall or floor using infrared before drilling work starts.

The result is instant, no processing, no delay, the image is live, and can be saved on memory stick to and images incorporated into a written report.

In the image below, the location of the hidden hot water pipe, inside buried in the concrete wall, was identified before breaking concrete commenced saving time, money and reducing waste.
