Introducing Electric Field Vector Mapping – EFVM®

Jersey Infrared Consultants, pioneers in the Infrared Industry since 1984, are pleased to offer another form of non-destructive testing – ElectricField Vector Mapping, or EFVM®.

EFVM® is a type of non-destructive testing used to locate a breach or void in a waterproofing membrane. During testing, an electrical current at low voltage is used to create an electrical potential between a non-conductive membrane and a grounded conductive deck or substrate.

Common applications for EFVM® include quality assurance testing of newly installed waterproofing membranes prior to installation of pavers or overburden; locating sources of leaks in IRMA or uninsulated roof systems; and identifying breaches or holes in parking deck or patio membranes.

Cost Avoidance/Energy Savings for IR Thermography

“Has anyone documented Cost Avoidance Or Potential energy savings using Thermography. Ex. Downtime, Labor, Materials. I would be interested in understanding how you determined final cost or energy savings.”

This is the $64,000 question, how to justify the cost and benefits of an IR program. The methods used vary depending on your situation, what downtime costs in your facility, overtime and rush ordering to get new parts, lost production cost, your energy cost, etc.

I have selected several white papers that illustrate how different organizations have calculated their costs. Use them as examples of what can be done, and how they are presented.
