Infrared Imaging Inspections

John Herbert
Director


Direct access to the experts, we diagnose faults and find defects using the latest infrared technology. Infrared imaging or thermography is an invaluable tool to reveal critical information that's not visible to the human eye.

Want to discuss a thermal infrared scan call John Herbert 📞 +852 2335 9830 today!

Infrared inspections can rapidly diagnostic faults and defects avoiding costly downtime or service interruptions.

We use Fluke infrared camera with 0.01 degC high resolution chip providing high accuracy.

Thermal infrared imaging is one important tool to investigate buildings, energy systems, air conditioning, electrical systems, motors, switchgear, busbars, and predictive failure 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 finds those hot spots, so the connection can be repaired before the power failure, or before the electrical fire starts.

thermal imaging takes eliminates guesswork



Investigation

Infrared is a rapid tool to detect and diagnose a range of building defects, moisture mould problems and engineering defects including:

  • buildings
  • roofing
  • damp
  • commissioning
  • electrical
  • water piping
  • AC coils

  • 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.

    Also concealed defects such as delamination of tiling, screed, plaster, spalling, thermal insulation, and roof membrane can identified using our infrared service.

    Infrared works because air, salt, or water ingress cause tiny temperature changes in the surface material, not visible to humans, but the defect causes a slight surface temperature difference can be detected with our infrared service.

    Call us today on 📞 +852 2335 9830 for a building inspection quotation.

    Infrared for Building Roof

    Water leakage is a constant nuisance for building owners, and infrared technology an invaluable tool for new roof membrane inspection.

    Conducted immediately after the ponding/flooding test, and BEFORE the final finish is applied, the surface is scanned and tiny defects can be identified with infrared imaging.

    It works because any water under the membrane changes in the material temperature, its not visible to humans, but water causes a slight surface temperature difference can be detected with our infrared camera.

    To avoid IR reflections and solar influence external scanning should be undertaken without bright sunshine.

    ArchSD specify the infrared method for new roof membrane leakage testing.

    Call us today on 📞 +852 2335 9830 for new roof membrane inspection quotation.

    No more guesswork



    Infrared for Building Moisture

    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.

    Having the inspection and infrared image takes away the guesswork, saving time and money.

    In one building, our building inspection discovered extensive water ingress into the ground floor premises through the common wall accumulating under the staircase. The owner was shocked to learn about the presence of water.

    📞 call today on +852 2335 9830 for a quotation.



    Infrared for Commissioning

    Thermal infrared scanning a switchboard, electrical motor, or control panel can instantly detect any loose connections so the connection can be repaired immediately, saving time and money. Simply put, it takes away guesswork.

    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 later.

    Take away the guesswork, call us today on 📞 +852 2335 9830 for a quotation.

    Infrared for Electrical Installations

    Thermal scanning an electrical system is a no contact method to check the integrity of live electrical cables, busbars, busduct and connections without interrupting the power supply to check each connection manually saving time and money.

    Poor connections at cable joints, switches, busbars, busducts, etc. cause heat and increasing temperature which cannot be seen with the human eye, but can be viewed only with our infrared thermal images, no more guesswork, tracing faults the infrared image shows the problems.

    No more guesswork, checking diagnosing issues immediately, avoiding weeks on site troubleshooting electrical issues.

    The result is instant, no processing, no delay, the image its captured live, and can be saved on memory stick and followed up with a written report.

    Infrared Scan of Hidden Piping

    Scanning the building wall or floor using infrared can identify the location of concealed piping 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 later.

    The exact location of the concealed hot water pipe, and drainage pipe, buried inside the concrete wall was identified before breaking concrete commenced saving waste, saving time, and saving money.

    Call on 📞 +852 2335 9830 for a quotation today.

    Infrared Scan of AC coil

    Scanning air conditioning coils using infrared can detect the location of defects before 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 later.
