Thermal imaging located leaks in steam pipes

Infrared imaging locates leaks in buried steam pipes and condensate lines. Commercial boilers have fill-monitoring systems to notify the property owner when the boiler is taking in replacement water. This notice is often first indication a property owner has that a steam leak is present somewhere in the system. It is not uncommon for a system with steam leak to take in large quantities of water fresh water, sometimes hundreds of gallons per day.

Replacement water comes into the boiler “cold” and needs to be heated by the boiler. Heating this constant flow of replacement cold water into steam increases fuel bills and reduces operational efficiency. It can also introduce additional minerals, contaminants and sediment into the boiler, leading to the need for additional maintenance and repairs.

Our high-resolution thermal imager can precisely locate the leak site and mark its location. Infrared steam leak location services can eliminate the random and expensive excavation work often used to find leaks in outdoor buried steam pipes. Interior steam leaks are pinpointed and the flooring marked to eliminate unnecessary digging and destruction of decorative or hard to replace flooring surfaces.

Steam pipe leaks can be caused punctures, bad connections, freezing, settling or cracked cement substrate and age. In commercial buildings and apartments built many years ago the old iron steam pipes often fail at connection points such as elbows, unions and “Tees”.

Infrared thermal imaging inspections can typically pinpoint the exact location of the defective joint, connection of defect in the pipe allowing for a precise repair with minimal excavation damage to surrounding areas.
