Kino Workshop has qualified as a thermographer at the second level.

These days, Kino Workshop, in the person of Arch. Bernard D'Ippolito, has obtained the certificate for thermographer at the second level and can then proceed with the release of any type of thermography certification following the directions of the law contained in the European standard EN 473.

Thermography is a method of inquiry that goes to the best operating philosophy Kino, because it is a non-destructive method, which shows, with the reading of the infrared emission, which are not perceptible to the human eye, the next destructive events of the walls.It is, in fact, a practical and effective system for analyzing phenomena such as capillary rising damp, cold bridges, accidental loss, interstitial and surface condensation, and all this with a methodology and an unequivocal result qualitatively.

Its applications are many. For the recovery of valuable properties, for example, you can analyze fabrics, wall hangings and wall structures, placed under frescoes. You can easily analyze the detachment of plaster and stone cladding of a building facade, caused by oxidation of the underlying iron or poor adhesion of the mortar used.Finally, may undergo thermal analysis, hydraulic hoses, malfunctioning or inefficient radiators and proceed to the certification of buildings and their effective dispersion to produce a thorough examination of the energy requirements of buildings.

With regard to plants and industry, however, thermography assumes considerable importance in view of optimization of investments being an excellent method of predictive failure. Through a prior diagnosis of malfunction can prevent costly downtime or accidental overheating of switches, cables, transformers and boilers, and find, finally, the failure of PV systems and the consequent economic damage that results.

In a list of example, here are some cases where the use of thermographic survey can help a wide range of job categories in the performance of their duties:

  • Hose Managers
  • Public and Private Organizations

(Targeted and timely rebuilding facades without the obligation of dependence on companies, detachments of plaster as 20 m in height or covering stone without the aid of scaffolding, pipe testing dispersants, water rising by capillarity, ferrite slabs of the balconies or overhangs);

  • Church buildings
  • Artistically important monuments and buildings

(Verification of the walls in places or under plaster fresco for the return of the historic artifact, eg. Old walled openings or wall texture and bearing of the historic buildings, detachments of the vestments in a predictive way you can plan a campaign of restoration and restoration process, territory analysis for verification of archaeological sites has been tampered with);

  • Industries
  • Military Organizations

(Overheating of equipment, dispersion in the paintings, process verification, failure of photovoltaic systems, inefficient air-conditioning or heating).
