- Why We Use Infrared Technology -
We don't rely on one piece of equipment.
Verification of Moisture Meter Findings:
We start with the Gann Hydromette Uni 1 B60 moisture meter (a Dielectric
Moisture Meter). If we get a reading indicating moisture we then use our Protimeter invasive moisture and lastly our Infrared camera to verify our initial findings.
Detection of Thermal Anomalies:
With the Gann and the Protimeter we are only detecting moisture. With these devices we are limited to physical access to areas we wish to investigate for moisture. The Infrared camera enables us to 'see' temperature related anomalies which can be either moisture related or non-moisture related anomalies. We are able look for anomalies in areas we cannot test with our moisture meters.
For your own knowledge and interest we have put together the following photos to give you a better ideas just what we are able to discover with the Infrared camera that is not possible to see with the naked eye or with our other moisture detection equipment. You can view a PDF with details about the inspection equipment use.
