Infrared Imaging Applications
Infrared Inspection avoids costly
destructive testing, as well as reassure all parties
involved, that all damages have been identified.
No longer is there a need to 'start cutting holes'
in order to determine the extent of damages. As
we've known for years, 'a picture is worth
a thousand words.'
Grounding & collision
damages to fiberglass
Kevlar & carbonfiber hulls, cored composites
including Airex & Balsa, honeycomb, core
mat & other core materials
See into laminates & observe
delamination, dis-bonding, breaks, fractures,
crushing, voids, blisters & water entrapment
Carbon fiber mast inspection
Lightning damage to fiberglass
Electrical wiring & breaker/panel
See "hot" circuits
Mechanical engine inspections
Lubrication features, water
& coolant flow, leaking exhaust systems,
The non-destructive nature of Infrared inspection
is based on a sensitivity of .035 degree Fahrenheit,
FLIR T640 Thermacam the video camera that detects
infrared radiation transfer through various materials,
then displays the temperature differentials and
offers instant still and motion video pictures.
The camera is a radiometric device that captures
temperature data in every pixel of the image for
