Thermal Imaging detecting bad insulation in buidings

Infrared cameras create a visual representation of temperatures and can quickly highlight potential problems.  However a general understanding of where a problem might lie is no likely to give the full picture.  Precise data is needed and that is exactly what Drone Media Imaging can provide with their combination of UAV and state of the art thermal imaging cameras.   Exact non-contact temperature measurement can take place at any point in a captured image.

Infrared cameras cannot see through walls as they measure the heat reflected from the object that is in the front.  However, as you can see in the image above of a person hiding behind a tree, under certain circumstances they can reveal things that are hidden to the naked eye.  Couple this with the drone’s ability to reach otherwise inaccessible locations, this can be a powerful tool for both search and diagnosis.

Predictive Maintenance

Experts can make judgments regarding the operation of electrical or industrial elements using infrared thermal imaging – either through a single image or through a sequence of images taken over time for comparison purposes.   Previously this would have been possible through the use of infrared thermometers which are brilliant at taking a reading at a single point.  However, a thermal imaging camera, particularly when attached to a drone or unmanned aerial vehicle, can quickly scan large areas from hard or impossible to reach viewpoints.

Pretty much everything that uses power gets hot before it fails and infrared thermography already has a track record in offering predictive or preventative maintenance opportunities. Being able to spot potential problems before they reach the point of failure can be a huge asset and cost saving tool to many businesses.
