Thermal Imaging and Infrared Thermography

Morman Marine Surveyors have been using thermal imaging since 2008. Thermal imaging is a non-destructive inspection on a vessel. It is possible to detect problems previously serviced by core sampling without contacting the surface of the boat. Temperature differentials can expose hidden problems like delamination, fractures, moisture and lightning strikes.

Thermal Imaging can detect potential problems that would be invisible to the naked eye, and even to many instruments. Electrical, mechanical, propulsion, power generation and other systems often show unusual heat variations before failure. Likewise, structural problems in FRP, wood, and composite laminates are frequently accompanied by abnormal heat signatures. Such problems are clearly visible to thermal imaging, with its extremely sensitive heat detection capabilities, allowing problems to be detected early and helping to avoid costly and catastrophic failures.
