Effective finding and repairing of burst pipes and thermal bridges

Effective finding and repairing of burst pipes and thermal bridges

Expected profit: 50% cost reduction
Expected cost: the price of one or two laser scans
Products used: Leica BLK360

The Leica BLK360 system also has its own thermal camera. This means that in addition to panorama images and point clouds, fully corresponding horizontal thermal camera panorama images are also available.

It is in the most rare of cases that the damp patch occurs precisely at the location of a burst pipe. Using a thermal camera image and then the point cloud the coldest or warmest point, i.e. the source of the fault, can be located with good precision.

This same solution can also show the locations of thermal bridges and bad insulation, in other words it can be easily seen where the building’s heat loss can be reduced, which in turn will result in a saving of energy and an improvement in comfort too.
