Aerial Steam Surveys

Underground steam line leaks can wreck your facility’s bottom line. Steam leaks waste money and energy. They can ultimately lead to line failure, system interruptions, property damage and angry customers.

Since 1981, Mid Atlantic Infrared has provided aerial infrared surveys of underground steam and hot water distribution systems. Deteriorated insulation and steam or condensate leaks result in increased ground surface temperatures.   Our surveys provide early warning of developing steam system failures so repairs can be planned, not forced.

Our unique process provides problem analysis that combines ground surface temperature measurements, the highest resolution digital infrared, along with knowledge of steam system construction and operation. We inspect and analyze every foot of pipe in your system.

As in all of our applications, we provide ANALYSIS, not just hot spot
