Level 1

Certification #12271

All objects emit some level of infrared radiation. Using the latest thermal imaging equipment, a properly trained infrared thermography can "see" this energy, and use it to better define the nature & extent of existing problems. They also may be able to discover previously undetected defects.

Infrared thermography is an excellent complement to conventional survey methods.

Thermographic surveys conducted by Global Marine Services comply with international infrared inspection standards & are perfomed by a certified level 1 infrared thermographer.
