Another use for thermal

Recommended Posts

Had a few invites to shoot duck, so thought I'd take the thermal spotter aswel as the lab, came in very handy for any duck that had dropped way out on the wheat, or still on the water that hadn't been picked😃

Or for seeing where your house is leaking heat... or finding ceiling joists, hot water pipes under the floor, inflammation spots on horses or 'other' bodies 😂 , cold spots.....the list is endless.

Stop it the pair of you. I've only just been drawn into IR, my bank account has gone into hiding at the sight of this thread.

A friend built a house which had underfloor heating.

The heating consisted of thin plastic pipes set into the concrete of the floor and which then had hot water pumped through them.  He had this in every room and had a fairly complicated control system of thermostats and motorised valves to direct the hot water to the right set of pipes.

Unfortunately the electrician who had wired up the system had mixed up some of the thermostats and motorised valves with the thermostat in one room causing the floor in another room to heat up.

I went round with the thermal imager and told him to operate one thermostsat at a time.

I was able to clearly see the pattern of hot pipes in a room within 2 minutes of him turning on a thermostat.

In less than an hour we had matched the thermostats to the valves and simply had to swap the connectors on the motorised valves to get the whole system working correctly

 

Cheers

This thread has given me an idea I'll take mine with me on Saturday for a driven pheasant shoot it's a woodland shoot and or though we have a good team of picker ups some times it's difficult to find a bird in the cover so I'll try with a thermal.

ive got the latest from Clive Ward so my trusty Pulser 38s is up for sale just pm if interested.

Funny you should say that, I was thinking of taking mine the last time I was picking up but decided not to in the end. Let us know how you get on if you take it.
