About Us


Infra-Image, based in Tupelo, MS specializes in infrared inspection and thermal imaging for homes and businesses. Our services help conserve energy costs and improve productivity.

At Infra-Image, we are proud to be able to offer a choice for your preventative maintenance needs.

Our services include but are not limited to:

  • Qualitative and quantitative electrical inspections
  • Rotating and mechanical equipment inspections
  • Insulated flat and low slope infrared roofing inspections
  • Data center infrared inspections
  • Masonry block wall thermal imaging
  • Building Envelope Thermal Scans
  • And much more…

At Infra-Image Inspection Service, we realized the need for local companies like yours to have a thermography service that you could count on under short notice. That’s why I invested heavily in equipment and the best training available to be able to provide this service. I am a Level II Infraspection Institute Certified Thermographer. I use high-resolution thermal imaging so that the images I produce are high quality and easily recognizable. My reports are ASTM, IEEE, NFPA, and NETA compliant. I have received NFPA 70E Arc Flash training and use all appropriate PPE. I carry general liability insurance and errors and omissions insurance.

Reporting

Reports are offered as hard-copies that are color laser printed and professionally bound. We also offer digital copies in PDF format emailed directly to you, or if you prefer, we can burn a CD and mail it to you.

After completing our work, we will provide you an elaborate report in electronic format and a hard copy that will include the following items:

  • Written summary of the inspection
  • Complete inventory list of equipment inspected
  • Repair priority ratings
  • Color thermograms of problems detected

What We Do

What Is Thermography?

In application, thermography is any situation where knowledge of thermal patterns across a surface will provide meaningful data about a structure, process, or system. That being said it allows us to see invisible changes in surface temperatures that appear to have an x-ray like effect, making underlying materials visible by their different heat signatures.

In theory, all objects above absolute zero emit infrared energy. We use thermal imagers to convert that energy into visible light. Our imagers can capture 76,800 temperature measurements in a single picture, making them the quickest way to inspect for temperatures across surfaces.

How Does It Work?

Infrared imagers “see” the heat radiated from your equipment in real time, just like a video camera sees visible light. In black and white thermograms (pictures of heat), white is hot and black is cold unless stated otherwise. When thermograms are in color, colors in the scene are matched to the reference bar. Colors appearing closer to the top or right of the reference bar indicate higher temperatures. Colors appearing closer to the bottom or left of the reference bar indicate lower temperatures.

Benefits of IR Inspection

  • Non-contact, non-destructive measurement
  • Can measure temperatures
  • Can be performed remotely
  • Predictive maintenance

Benefits of Predictive Maintenance

  • Allows you to improve productivity by reducing unplanned downtime and decreasing maintenance labor along with spare parts inventory.
  • It improves morale by creating a work atmosphere in which activities can be planned day to day.
  • By reducing friction, wear and adverse forces on equipment as well as locating energy leaks it improves energy conservation.
  • For those who have downtime insurance, these cost can be reduced.

Why Pay for Infrared Predictive Maintenance Programs?

As if all the above reasons were not enough, infrared predictive maintenance allows you to anticipate or prevent catastrophic failures and unsafe working conditions.

The Owner

Charles Russell has over twenty-five years of experience building and inspecting homes and commercial buildings in and around the mid-south area. Infra-Image inspectors are licensed home builders and inspectors. Charles has performed hundreds of inspections ranging from residential to commercial applications.

Charles received infrared Level II training with the Infraspection Institute, (the oldest and most respected infrared training firm in the world). He received classroom training with a special emphasis on producing quality images and qualitative data. Our inspections comply with OSHA 1910 and NFPA 70E standards and our reports are written in accordance with ASTM E 1934.
