Incorrect ventilation behaviour or structural defects, such as thermal bridges, are some of the most frequent causes of mould formation in apartments, houses, old buildings and new builds. The testo 872 thermal imager and the testo 605i Smart Probe enable professional, simple and absolutely reliable detection of mould-risk areas before mould develops.
The professional thermal imager provides you with ideal support in your day-to-day work: you can generate error-free and objectively comparable infrared images using its handy functions. The IFOV warner, testo ɛ-Assist and testo ScaleAssist mean you can avoid measurement errors and not only effortlessly achieve optimum setting of emissivity (ɛ) and reflected temperature (RTC) for building thermography, but also of colour scale.
Special measuring mode for detecting mould-risk areas
Identify the risk of mould easily and reliably: the testo 605i thermohygrometer measures ambient temperature and humidity and transmits the readings in real time via Bluetooth to the thermal imager. The infrared camera measures the surface temperature and calculates the relative surface moisture using the readings from the thermohygrometer. The relative surface moisture is shown on the display as a humidity image – mould-risk areas are indicated using traffic light colours.
You can very easily see how big the risk of mould is by means of the traffic light colours (green, amber, red):
Green = no risk. The surface moisture is between 0% and 59% - mould spores do not find optimum growing conditions
Amber = caution, mould formation possible. The surface moisture is between 60% and 79% - some mould spores find optimum growing conditions
Red = attention, mould danger. The surface moisture is over 80% - mould spores find optimum growing conditions
The testo 872 thermal imager – smart and networked
The testo 872 thermal imager guarantees wireless communication with mobile terminal devices via WLAN. The testo Thermography App for iOS and Android offers you the possibility of writing and sending reports on site, as well as saving them online, and of using your smartphone or tablet as a second display or for remote control.
