Thermal imaging camera can detect leaking underfloor pipes

thermal imaging camera leak detectionA thermal imaging camera is a powerful leak detection tool that allows heating engineers and plumbers to provide instant diagnostic insights into your central heating system. The camera removes the need for expensive explorative guess work such as digging up tiles – as leaks or heating inefficiencies can, in many cases, be quickly located and identified.

How can a thermal imaging camera help?

1. Identify and locate any pipework leaks
2. Inspect underfloor heating and locate issues
3. Quick diagnostic of radiator condition and performance
4. Determine whether central heating requires a powerflush

Thermal imaging camera leak detection

An established central heating system can develop leaks from time to time. This can also happen when a high pressure system is fitted to old pipework. These leaks can cause damp patches and loss of pressure from your central heating. With our new advanced thermal imaging camera, under floor leaks can be detected and visually seen on the infrared camera screen.

Benefits of using a thermal imaging camera:

• Find hidden problems faster than other technologies
• Produce customised reports and validate the quality of repair
• Detect issues before small problems become more expensive ones

Diagnosing radiator condition

Over time your central heating system can build up sludge caused by the internal rust from radiators and reaction from all the different metals used within your radiators and pipework. This leaves your central heating system working inefficiently – costing you money. This is when a Powerflush is often required to clean your central heating system. But do you really need a powerflush? By using a thermal imaging camera, radiator problems are quickly diagnosed. The reading on the camera screen will clearly indicate if the radiator is at fault by detecting how the heat is distributed throughout the radiator. If heat is distributed evenly, the cause of the problem may be elsewhere in your central heating system and therefore an expensive powerflush may not be required.

A picture is worth a thousand words

One real benefit of a thermal imaging camera is that you don’t have to rely anyone’s advice. The camera will provide a full image of the situation so you can clearly see any issues yourself on the camera’s screen – then make an informed decision whether to proceed with any plumbing repairs or servicing. Furthermore, after the work has been completed you’ll be able to see the improvement.
