Thermal Imaging and Building Inspections

Thermal Imaging has many applications and the construction industry is beginning to harness its potential by using it during both construction and renovation processes to find faults and to establish compatibility with environmental standards. Roof inspections are a key component of this and the attachment of the thermal imaging camera to a drone or UAV makes these possible with minimal setup, safety risk, or danger of [...]

Drones and Flood Water Management

Drones can prove to be a valuable tool in flood management, an increasing concern in the UK after the spate of flooding across the country in recent years, assisting both with standard and thermal imaging. UAVs can provide real-time imagery for fast and accurate reactions to a flood situation.  Also, each drone flight is tailored to the exact customer requirements so you can be sure that you will receive [...]

Old 1950 Landfill Site Thermal Imaging Inspection

The build-up of gases such as methane in landfill sites is a common problem for councils & landowners, particularly if the land is identified for development. Drilling boreholes to relieve the gas build-up, along with 'flash burning' the methane is a significant undertaking, so the identification of the heat spots and potential underground fires is critical. The use of drones to complete the survey and land inspection using thermal [...]

Thermal Imaging Colour Palettes

Thermal cameras don't actually detect colour at all as they operate outside of the range of visible light, but the thermal info is recorded and displayed in colour formats to make it easier to interpret. The most common palette is the so-called Iron one where black represents the colder areas through red, orange and yellow the mid-range temperatures and white for the hottest [...]

Thermal Imagery – From the Military to Your Business

New technologies seem to be developed at a borderline alarming pace but many of them remain out of reach of anyone but the governments and militaries of the world until popular applications are found and mass production begins. Thermal imaging is one such example. Developed for military use as early as 1958 in order to be able to see targets in the darkness or across the smoke of a [...]

Solar Panel Terms and Acronyms

The drone industry is awash with acronyms and specialised terms which can make it confusing to read about to someone who is just browsing to see if UAVs can be of help to them in their everyday lives. The problem is compounded if you're looking to see how drones equipped with thermal imaging cameras can help you to monitor and maintain your solar panels.  Here's some of the [...]

Thermal Imaging of your Home – Detecting Heat Loss

Thermal Imaging Detecting Heat Loss Every year, as the weather turns colder and the heating systems are switched on across the UK, we all become conscious of the cost of keeping warm and cosy over the season. Putting on extra layers and tucking up under a blanket are one solution but it is also worth considering checking that your home’s insulation is in tip [...]

Using Drone Thermography for Building Surveys

Thermal imaging cameras can turn the infrared radiation reflected off by all objects into a picture which presents this information visually. This can have so many applications. Insulation Inspection Solar Panel Inspection – either domestic or commercial Identifying Heat Loss and Thermal Bridging Roof Inspections HVAC Inspections Search and Rescue Electrical Equipment Assessment Contrary to many movies, a thermal camera can’t be used to see [...]

Drone Thermography to Inspect Domestic Solar Panels

Using Drone Thermography to Inspect your Domestic Solar Panels Domestic solar panels are now a familiar sight on the rooftops of the UK, but many people fail to carry out the necessary maintenance to make sure that they are getting the most from their investment. Faults in your panel, either caused during the installation process or occurring over time, can not only mean that [...]

Thermal Imaging & Flat Roof – Case Study

DMI were called to a home that had historically had problems with a particular part of their flat roof.  Over time, it had leaked water into the interior of their house and that had led them to having it replaced. Unfortunately, the initial repair had been below par and so had been redone.  Although this was some time ago, and there were no signs of [...]
