Since thermal imaging is an expanding market – with new applications springing up continuously – there is an ever-growing variety of infrared cameras available. Choosing the perfect one might seem complicated, so here are a few of the choices available.
A number of factors come into play when it comes to selecting the most appropriate infrared camera: durability, ease of operation, temperature range, detector size, lens angle, sensitivity, as well as voice annotation and reporting capabilities. Another very important consideration is the work environment.
If you manage a property in Toronto, chances are there is a Thyssenkrupp elevator in it, since this group operates over 2,000 elevators around the city. If there is an issue with it, you won’t need to get worried – we have a direct working relationship with them.
Elevator shafts built with hollow blocks represent a constant danger of leaking and water damage. Unlike a concrete wall, such blocks continuously accumulate water from the surrounding environment. Even though nothing can be done to prevent this natural process from happening, there is a solution that ensures complete waterproofing of the wall and the floor.
Even though wall cracks tend to be the most frequent cause of a flooded elevator shaft (a cracked floor is far less likely, due to its depth), they are not the only ones to blame.
The challenging aspect of repairing elevator shafts is having to work from the negative side (the inside), for obvious reasons. Floor-wall cold joints, as well as cracking throughout shaft walls and floor, is what causes the shaft to leak, inevitably leading to ruined elevator equipment. As a result, the elevator is shut down.
It might sound like a leaking elevator shaft is not a huge deal – after all, nobody’s apartment is getting flooded. Would any tenant like to climb to their Nth floor, though, because the elevator isn’t working? That’s exactly what will happen, since water accumulating in the shaft will eventually ruin elevator equipment, causing a complete shutdown.
