Infrared Inspection Services (Hot Spots = Indication of Problem Area)

Infrared inspection, or thermography, is used throughout industry as a diagnostic tool for finding problems. Infrared inspection is a non-destructive, non-contact, and cost-effective way to detect and document hot spots. Our high-performance infrared cameras have a broad range of temperature measurements and produce superior image quality.

Our inspection service includes a thermographic and visual equipment scan with a comprehensive report of the findings. Scroll down to view a sample report!

Some specific examples of Viper inspection services:

  • Electrical Inspection
  • Mechanical Inspection
  • Building Diagnostics
  • Gas Leak Detection
  • Furnace and Boiler Inspection
  • Compressed Air Leak & Partial Discharge Detection

Calibration of Thermal Imaging Cameras and Pyrometers

The highly specialized cameras used for systems monitoring should be calibrated annually to optimize performance. Viper uses precision blackbody calibration sources to ensure the reliability of measurements being made. This will inspect for camera drift as well as uniformity.

  • Send your equipment to Viper for NIST traceable calibration checks and certification. (up to 1200°C)

  • On-site calibration checks are also available. (up to 550°C)

Compressed Air Leak & Partial Discharge Detection

Acoustic imaging can locate pressurized leaks in compressed air systems or detect partial discharge from high-voltage electrical systems. Let us help extend compressor life by eliminating wasted output, and minimize equipment failure resulting from PD and corona issues.

  • Pinpoint compressed air leaks
  • Classify partial discharge type
  • Identify corona discharge day or night

Quarterly Service Plan

This one-day (or more upon request) on-site service inspection includes the following:

  • Calibration checks and certification of infrared cameras and pyrometers
  • ViperVision software upgrades
  • Preventive maintenance of software
  • Evaluation of software logs, if applicable
  • Confirm communication to control system, if applicable
  • Optic checks (verifying camera focus)
  • Window cleaning and pressure check of ViperVenom enclosures, if applicable
