Thermography

Using infrared camera technology, our technicians can detect potential trouble spots in electrical equipment, wiring and transformers.  The early detection of these problems can avoid costly major repairs and expensive downtime on revenue producing equipment.  Fires, unscheduled outages, and lost production due to electrical anomalies can be avoided by using infrared thermography on a regular basis.

By using Thermography, a visual inspection of electrical equipment takes on a whole new meaning.  One of the advantages of thermography is that the inspection can be conducted whilst the electrical system is live with actual load currents being drawn.  The inspection shows any areas of weakness as in loose connections and overloads.

Advantages of Predictive Maintenance:

  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Reduces unscheduled downtime
  • Reduces risk of equipment failure
  • Reduces repair time and unnecessary repairs
  • Improves product quality
  • Enhances worker safety
  • Cost-effective

Infrared Thermography helps identify the following problems:

  • Overloaded circuits
  • Faulty electrical contacts or connections
  • Improper grounding

Examples of what can be scanned:

  • Electrical switch gear, breakers, bus connections, and contacts
  • Transformer connections
  • Motor and generator connections,  windings, and feeders
