AITScan FindIR™ Services
Our Aerial Infrared services can find issues that would otherwise go unseen, leading to large energy savings and the prevention of costly repairs or environmental damage.
Roof Moisture FindIR™
Aerial roof moisture surveys provide a more comprehensive and accurate way to detect roof moisture issues. This method provides more useful data to decision makers than walk-on surveys are able to provide.
Steam Leak FindIR™
While checking the boilers and lines in steam tunnels are jobs best done on the ground, the distribution and condensate return lines that are direct-buried are best surveyed from the air by our aerial infrared thermography experts.
All too often, our stormwater collection systems convey pollutants into our clean water. Aerial infrared surveys provide a way to identify sources of pollutants from illicit connections, degraded sanitary sewers and more.
Aerial infrared surveys are one of the most efficient ways to quickly identify and count a variety of animal types within normal forest, rural, and suburban habitats.
Aerial infrared imaging is often used by the U.S. Forest Service to effectively monitor for forest fires. This same technology can be used to detect and pinpoint potentially hazardous fires within Landfills.
HTHW Leak FindIR™
High-resolution aerial imagery allows slight nuances of temperature to be detected. Because of this technology, leaks and insulation deficiencies within HTHW systems can be easily identified.
#1 Nationwide for Aerial Infrared
Our Aerial Infrared Thermography Service:
Highest Quality Reports
Our Aerial Infrared reports are created with high-angle, straight down (NADIR) infrared images, which reduce reflections and capture large areas at once, making the imagery easier to analyze and the report less expensive to produce.
Combination of Image Types
Since images are captured straight-down or ‘plan view’, the report is clear, concise and easy to understand because infrared images, visual images and AutoCAD® drawings are reconciled.
Decades of Experience
We have performed numerous qualitative infrared thermographic surveys of steam systems for universities, cities and industrial clients nationwide. We brought together all the components that truly make us the state-of-the-art in the field of infrared thermography and our deliverable product is the best on the market today. We use high-resolution infrared imagers, digital recording equipment, techniques that have been refined over the years and the attitude that we are going to obtain the best imagery possible and produce a professional report in a timely manner.
Fixed-wing aircraft allow AIT a cost-effective platform to obtain high quality infrared imagery, passing savings on to you!
How Our FindIR™ Services Can Help You:
Problem areas are generally quite evident, having brighter white IR signatures that exceed the norm. Steam line faults normally appear as an overheated line or as a large hotspot in the form of a bulge or balloon along the line.
Areas of roof moisture contamination often manifest themselves as warmer (lighter colored) areas that may be nebulous in shape and sometimes mottled in appearance, although they are commonly found in linear or puddle-like shapes.
Leaking sewage collector lines, storm water drain discharges and illegal taps into storm water drainage lines can often be identified by their thermal infrared signatures during certain times of the year. As these sources of pollution leak, they can be pinpointed accurately from the air.
We have a large collection of published papers about aerial infrared thermography that are available for you to download. These articles are highly recognized across the infrared thermography industry, and will help you learn more about what our services can offer.
