Thermal image testing
Thermal Image Testing detects anomalies that are not viable to the naked eye. Detecting termites can be a difficult manual process. Traditional methods have stood the test of time however, new technology has changed how things are done for the better.
In the past, identifying what was behind a wall involved drilling into building materials and knocking or tapping against timber structures in an effort to disturb the termites or listening for their distinctive noises while on the move. DedAnt now uses the latest technology for inspections, including thermal imaging cameras, motion sensors and moisture detectors, this increases accuracy when it comes to detecting live termites.
Thermal camera for finding termites
Thermal image cameras allow our technicians to identify swarms of termites through walls using infrared imaging. A thermal imaging camera can assist with finding termite nests hidden behind walls. It picks up heat, so if there is a large swarm of live termites behind a wall, the camera will show a hot spot that should not be there.
In addition, the camera is useful for finding pooling water or wet areas behind walls that shouldn't be there. Anywhere there is damp timber, is an ideal location for termites to feast.
What can a thermal camera detect?
In the right conditions, a thermal camera can detect the following;
Dedant use the latest technology
Flir Thermal Imaging Camera
The Flir thermal camera (FLIR E8- XT) is the perfect tool for diagnosing temperature anomalies inside a building. This equipment will indicate hot spots and cold spots, possibly indicating a large termite nest hidden in the wall cavity, leaking pipes behind a wall and leaking showers.
Termatrac T3i All Sensor
Using radar technology, relative and direct moisture sensor as well as a thermal sensor, the T3i All Sensor was designed to help operators locate, confirm and track the presence and extent of termite and other pest activity. Used with an invasive inspection to determine termite activity.
Tramax Moisture Meter
The Tramax moisture meter is the leading tool in moisture detection. High moisture levels could indicate leaking pipes, poor ventilation, ineffective drainage, leaking roof or defective flashing. Damp timber within wall cavities is also very attractive to termites.
