Having the right equipment is essential to the success of any job whether you’re an artist, doctor, race-car driver or contractor—and it’s no different when it comes to professional thermographers.

At InfraScan, we use the latest thermal imaging equipment and software to deliver fast and accurate results that our clients can easily interpret. Our infrared cameras allow us to pinpoint problems with the highest degree of precision and without any invasive damage to your property.

These cameras are among a new age of tools and techniques used to inspect buildings, equipment and entire mechanical systems for problems such as heat loss, moisture intrusion and overheating electrical components.

Palmer-Wahl infrared cameras

We proudly use only Palmer-Wahl thermal imaging cameras, which are designed for maximum resolution and precision while being light, compact and easy to use. They give sharper, brighter and more detailed results and allow us to store over 1,000 thermal images.

What’s more, the user-friendly analysis and reporting software allows us to deliver complete reports to our clients faster than ever before.

How infrared cameras work

Many people are fascinated at how infrared cameras work. But in reality, it’s a fairly simple process.

Just like a regular camera, infrared (or thermal imaging) cameras capture light; however, this light is in the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum, so we can’t see it with the naked eye—we need an infrared camera.

To fully understand how these cameras work, let’s start with the lens. All infrared cameras have a special lens that is designed to detect infrared energy (heat) emitted by the objects and surfaces in view.

The energy captured by the camera is processed and displayed in an image known as a thermogram. The whole process takes only one-thirtieth of a second!

In a thermogram, the coolest objects appear in blue, while the warmest objects appear in red. An experienced thermographer then analyzes the infrared image in search of any anomalies in temperature, which are indicative of structural problems and moisture intrusion.
