Thermal Imaging Camera Hire for locating hot water and central heating pipework

Application purpose:
Tracing the location and routing of sub-surface pipework.

Using the table below, select the most appropriate camera model based on the following application level descriptions. Please also consider any limiting factors that may apply.

  • Basic Applications include: Locating and routing central heating and hot water pipework to provide an understanding of the approximate locations.
  • Intermediate Applications include: Locating and routing central heating and hot water pipework for the purposes of avoiding when drilling or carrying out intrusive works in close proximity.
  • Advanced Applications include: Basic and Intermediate applications requiring high quality radiometric images for the purposes of analysing and presenting within a report.

Preparation/Environmental Conditions

Following a suitable amount of time with the heating off and the floor/walls cold, the heating/hot water should be turned on. The floor/walls should then be observed with a themal imaging camera until the location/routing of the sub-surface pipework becomes visible due to the variation in surface temperature on the floor/walls.

Limiting Factors to be considered

Water pipes within suspended floors, depth of pipes below floor, thick carpets/floor coverings will reduce heat transfer to the surface. In such circumstances, consideration should be given to selecting an increased specification camera which will have a greater chance of success.
