Thermal Tests Know Your Environment

Measuring thermal properties of the ground is a crucial stage in the development of a project : these will allow a realistic, yet optimized sizing. The operation consists in performing a series of thermal stimulations with one or several test probes, by means of a specific device. The response of the probe(s) is used to determine the essential local properties such as the conductivity and the specific heat of the ground, as well as the capacity of the probe to exchange calories with the ground. The operation requires a precise and reliable tool.

We develop our own range of automated test devices. Our services include installation of the test device, performing the test, and a complete report.

As an option we can take care of the installation of test probes (drilling / installation / sealing) and the participation of a geologist. We then rely on local specialists of their geographical and geologic area.
