    • PM 695
    • PM 575
    • T400
  • Employees All our inspectors have a Level I and Level II certificate through the Infrared Training Centre, which guarantees a professional assessment of the infrared images. Danderyd, Sweden Boston, USA
  • What is Thermography? Water and composite materials have different thermal properties. When out of thermal balance (equilibrium), after a heating or cooling process, a temperature difference is observed between water and composite. An infrared camera enables the temperature distribution on the inspection surface to be observed.
  • Advantages of Thermography It shows a visual picture so temperatures over a large area can be compared It is capable of catching moving targets in real time It is able to find deteriorating (i.e. at higher temperature) components prior to their failure It can be used to measure or observe in areas inaccessible or hazardous for other methods It is a non-destructive test method It can be used to find defects in shafts and other metal parts
  • Other examples of Thermography Door area heaters and heated blankets Detecting moisture in Landing gear doors and Thrust Reversers Identifying electrical components or wiring that are “powered” Identifying “hot spots” in electrical components Overheated or bypassing hydraulic components Dectecting moister in flaps (see picture)
  • Themselves or outsourcing?

  • Themselves or outsourcing?
    • Outsourcing:
    • Advantages:
    • No charges for the acquisition of the camera, education and calibration of camera
    • Directly after the inspection you receive a professional report
    • - Experience in thermography during the last 12 years
