EXPERTS IN LEAK DETECTION

Using vehicle-borne thermography

Ensure delivery of
district heating system with 
proactive leak detection

on the terrain. We use an advanced 

infrared camera. The picture we 

take with the thermal camera can 

also be integrated with a standard 

digital image using GPS coordinates 

to create a clear picture of energy 

leaks.

scheme. Our report gives you the 

opportunity to fix the leaks before 

they become acute, and planning 

and budgeting for future mainte-

nance. We can also help you to 

structure the maintenance of district 

heating network over time.

What is the status of the 
district heating network?

Aquademica are experts in leak de-

tection. We perform vehicle-borne 

thermography of district heating 

networks to help you secure the 

supply of heat and hot water to 

households. A clear picture of the 

status of the district heating net-

work makes it easier to plan mainte-

nance and control costs. By locating 

leaks with great precision, before 

the shovel is in the ground, main-

tenance are made easier and more 

cost effective.

When using vehicle-borne ther-

mography, the leak detection 

technician controls the thermal 

camera using a robotic head. 

Measurements are made at night  

taking thermal pictures at a dis-

tance of 20 kilometers depending 

When we have conducted meas-

urements, we compile a report 

and make a complete walkthrough 

and evaluation of the results with 

you. In this report, we present 

the status of the district heating 

network, along with the recom-

mended maintenance in what 

we consider to be the best action

Water loss in the

district heating network?

We can locate the leak!

The example shows that the investment for the vehicle-

borne thermography paid for themselves after only about 

two months. The savings generated in the first year corre-

sponds, in this example, the cost of five years of pro-active 

thermography. (Assuming the leaks located are corrected.)

(Month)

A leak in the heating network 

can cause a variety of prob-

lems, for example, wet insula-

tion can lead to corrosion and 

energy loss. The costs of this 

can be difficult to estimate, 

however it is easy to see the 

cost over time of the leaking 

water. Send us your drawings

The leak, what 
does it cost?

Infrared camera

A municipality with a 40 km long district heating net-

work with a leak of 30 cubic meters per day have a 

monthly cost of $8,100.* 

The cost of car-borne thermography is estimated, in 

this case, to $12,000.** 

* On a monthly basis, 

leakage is 900 cubic 

meters. In this case 

estimated cost of treat- 

ment and heating of new 

water before it can be in-

troduced into the system 

to $9 per cubic meter. 

** vehicle-borne ther-

mography costs about 

30 cent per meter.

Case

Aquademicas vehicle-borne thermography uses market-leading equipment, providing a complete 

status report over the district heating network. Our certified thermographers are experts at inter-

preting the image. A simpler infrared camera delivers an image that is perceived as more grainy 

and details leak becomes less clear.
