THE BASICS

Leaks and deterioration are the number one enemies in maintaining your building, and if you don’t catch them early, they can result in the need for extensive repairs. 


You do have a couple of options for taking care of these anomalies. You could take a wait-and-see approach, which involves ignoring the condition of your building until you’re catching drips in buckets or contending with an electrical shortage. Or, you can take a proactive approach and use infrared scanning which gives you the ability to pinpoint even tiny leaks before they can cause major damage your building’s structure.

THERMAL SURVEY

Infrared Imaging Science or Thermography measures heat differentials not moisture to detect anomalies. Liquids retain heat longer then solids, therefore wet insulation will have a different (hotter) heat signature then dry insulation. Infrared detection techniques; equivalent to a CAT Scan for a medical doctor, can pinpoint the extent of moisture infiltration through heat loss within a buildings components that are not visible with the naked eye. 

At RJSA all surveys are conducted by individuals who have a through understanding of building systems and components.

All of our thermographers have Level III Certification by the American Society of Non-Destructive Testing, the highest level training attainable. 

SHOWING A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE

INFRARED SCANS

ROOF SURVEY

Uncover areas of moisture in your roofing causing loss in insulation properties before possible structural damage. 

BUILDING ENVELOPE

Identify leaks and deterioration which can increased energy costs.

ELECTRICAL SURVEY

Detect high temperatures coming from electrical panels, wiring, switches and circuit brakers. This can help prevent shortages, outages and fires.

MECHANICAL SURVEY

Pinpoint blockages and leaks without interrupting operations longer then what is needed to correct the problem.

PROCESS FLOW SURVEY

Reveal high temperatures coming from pipes, valves and other components in your industrial or commercial system.

BENEFITS

An infrared survey helps develop the course of action for repairing, restoring,or replacing components of your building.  The survey is also an important tool used to accurately budget and plan for required work based on the information gathered. Early detection of even small problems allow for corrective action to be implemented before the problems become more destructive and costly.

 

This will save you not only time and money but unnecessary future frustration.
