Thermography

for predictive maintenance

Infrared thermography is the science of acquiring and analyzing thermal information from non-contact imaging devices. It is a predictive maintenance technique that uses instruments designed for the detection of heat energy emission to determine the condition of electromechanical systems, production processes, infrastructure and living beings.

UNLOCKS THE POSSIBILITIES BY SEEING THE INVISIBLE

It allows to detect anomalies: areas that are hotter or colder than they should be. It can locate and define incipient problems within a Plant or in a Power Transmission Line. We use the latest infrared camera technology manufactured by FLIR. Our staff has extensive flight experience and has been trained at the Infrared Training Center ITC (Sweden). We have an Operating License from the Dirección General de Aviación Civil – DGAC.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Thermography for predictive maintenance is a technique that uses non-contact imaging devices to analyze thermal information. It helps detect anomalies by identifying areas that are either hotter or colder than normal, allowing for the early detection of potential issues in electromechanical systems, production processes, infrastructure, and even living beings.

Thermography can detect various anomalies, such as overheating components, electrical faults, insulation issues, mechanical wear, and structural weaknesses in infrastructure like power transmission lines or industrial equipment.

We use the latest infrared camera technology manufactured by FLIR, including professional UAV drones modified by our company. Our equipment includes thermal and RGB cameras that provide simultaneous video transmission, accurate temperature measurement, advanced measurement tools, and image fusion capabilities.

Our on-site registration sessions usually span from 4 to 6 hours per day, depending on the specific needs of the project or inspection.

The report, delivered within 4 working days, contains high-resolution images, sharp thermal sensitivity details, severity rates indicating repair priority, embedded visual, voice, and text annotations, along with historical online reports accessible through our Extranet web network.

Yes, our staff is extensively trained and experienced in aerial thermography and has been certified by the Infrared Training Center ITC (Sweden) and holds licenses issued by the Dirección General de Aviación Civil – DGAC.

Absolutely, we understand that client needs may vary. We offer flexibility in delivery times and tailor our services to meet specific requirements, ensuring the utmost satisfaction and accuracy.

Our thermal imaging cameras feature a resolution of 640 × 512 pixels, a pixel pitch of 17 µm, and a spectral band of 7.5 – 13.5 µm. They provide high frame rates, excellent sensitivity (<50 mK at f/1.0), and a wide scene range for temperature detection (-40° to 550°C).

Our service adds value by ensuring the early detection of potential issues in various industrial sectors, including power transmission lines, factories, distribution plants, wind turbine generators, and industrial furnaces, preventing costly downtime and ensuring operational efficiency.

Yes, in addition to industrial applications, thermography is versatile. It can be used for agricultural purposes such as monitoring crop evolution, cattle head detection, search and rescue operations, and various other non-industrial uses due to its ability to detect temperature anomalies.
