Our highly trained and experienced electricians and thermographers use the latest technology to perform all infrared scan inspections. Our use of Infrared Thermographic scanning is a crucial step in effective electrical preventative maintenance programs as it allows us to find issues before they become critical. Our technicians can seek out issues with your energized electrical equipment and diagnose electrical problems before they cause irreparable or costly damage.
Our goal is to detect both common and uncommon issues that typically lead to critical disruptions. Our equipment allows us to identify hotspots that are difficult to see through surface inspections. It’s a cost-effective inspection process that improves maintenance procedures and helps avoid additional shutdowns as all work can be performed at once.
Early Detection of Faults
Infrared thermography allows us to detect hot spots that can prove to be problematic. These areas are found by comparing similar components with differing temperatures. We can perform qualitative thermography that is more conclusive than other modes of assessment and inspection. Using high-resolution imagery, we can identify even the slightest temperature differences, which allows us to detect faults in their early stages of development. This provides a more accurate, reliable, and secure inspection result.
Load Behaviour & Location
Our thermographic analyses of electrical installations allow us to inspect load behaviour, which is vital for accuracy. If we can only take thermographic measurements in low load situations, we will be unable to detect hot spots and there’s a chance of missing signs of faults. When measuring at full load, we can better determine where real issues exist. We also consider the installation’s location as high voltage outdoor installations requiring a special lens, as do limited space indoor switchboards.
Infrared thermography provides an efficient and cost-effective way to conduct inspections. We can adapt our services to meet your requirements using state-of-the-art thermal imaging cameras. Our experienced technicians can assist across all industries to provide the most accurate inspections in hand with customized solutions to address any faults in your electrical infrastructure.
This state-of-the-art electrical inspection method allows us to evaluate and monitor temperature profiles of mechanical or electrical equipment. It’s used as an important tool for diagnostics, allowing us to predict maintenance issues before they become critical.
Virtually any electrical problem can be found using Infrared thermography inspection. This is because almost all electrical faults will exhibit heats. Problems that can be found include:
- Loose or deteriorated connections
- Faulty breakers,
- Overloaded circuits,
- Load imbalances worn or pitted contactor points
- Excess harmonic patterns on transformer coils
Yes, the Infrared thermography inspection can be done without interrupting your work in most instances. This is because most electrical devices have a service interlock, which allows the inspection to take place without shutting off the power.
Yes. In order to properly find exactly where the electrical problem is, panels must be removed for the inspection to take place.
