This paper explains the use of Infrared Imaging as a method to quickly and efficiently determine the operational ability of snow melt systems for roof, valley, gutters and downspouts. It could also be easily utilized for these other heat trace cable systems:
?Pavement and Walkway Snow Melt Systems
?Radiant Floor Heating Systems
?Frost Heave Prevention Systems
?Frost Free Pipe Systems
The heat trace cable product itself produces a heat signature that can be easily detected with an infrared camera
