INFRARED

Inspection & Education

Infrared inspections greatly improves safety, minimalize equipment downtime and produces rapid accurate results.

Infrared Thermography is a non-contact inspection method that allows the client to view anomalies or defects that are not visible to the human eye. This allows highly accurate detection and inspection for a wide range of applications. Base Line Data has highly trained Level III Inspectors in Thermography for industrial inspections such as electrical breakers, loose connections, faulty fuses, overloads, high-temperature furnace and refractory lined equipment, moisture intrusion, leak detection, solar panel surveys, and flat roof inspections. BLD also offers Optical Gas Imaging for the detection of VOC gasses from refinery applications to home inspections. No job is too big or small.

Residential

Our certified thermographers can detect potential moisture in walls and ceilings. Infrared can help homeowners conserve energy by detecting any loss of interior heating or cooling, especially around doors and windows. Taking advantage of infrared technologies will help save on repair costs by pinpointing subject areas needing repair.

Commercial

Flat roofs are commercial properties and are notorious for water collection. Roofs will deteriorate and begin to let some of the water through, which will cause damage to your roof and inner structure/ceilings. Our thermographers can identify these problem areas by collecting moisture using state-of-the-art infrared imagers.

Electrical

Infrared thermographers can inspect electrical systems from a distance to reduce any hazards from direct contact (arc flashes). Thermal inspections of electrical systems can prevent failures and possible damage of an electrical component due to something as simple as a loose connection. An infrared scan of components will alert the inspector to any issues to report.

Industrial

All fired equipment needs to be monitored regularly for integrity. Using infrared technology allows us to find coking or plugged tubes within a heater, damaged or missing supports, and missing refractory from equipment’s inner walls. These issues can lead to failures and result in costly repairs to equipment.

Refractory lined equipment and piping in need of inspection for missing refractory can damage not only the equipment or piping but also adversely affect product flow within the system. The use of an infrared detector can identify problem areas.

Tanks & Steam-Air (SA) Decoke

Infrared detectors also allow for observation of product levels within storage tanks.

SA Decokes are becoming more common in today’s fired heaters. Infrared monitoring of heater tubes is necessary to ensure tube integrity. SA Decoking is less costly than mechanical pigging and has a quicker turnaround time. Under the right controls, most heaters can be analyzed and completed in one shift.

Optical Gas Imaging

Specific infrared cameras can detect Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) gases emitting from equipment or piping. These gases can be flammable or harmful to their surroundings.
