Infrared Thermography Inspection

1. Infrared Electrical Inspection Services
We are able to conduct infrared electrical inspections in finding hot spots caused by defects in connections and components. Our infrared thermography report contact summary of findings on areas of excess heat(caused by increased resistance) so that problems can be corrected before a component fails, causing damage to the component, creating safety hazards and productivity loss. 


Even new components can be defective

In electrical systems increased resistance can be caused by component age, fatigue, oxidation, wear, loose connections or poor installation.

This 20-amp circuit breaker has a loose wire screw. The loose connection has increased resistance causing it to get hot. Our high-resolution imager clearly shows the hottest area of the wire is by the screw head.  This breaker panel shows several connections generating heat. These problems may be caused by loose wires, corroded connections or excessive current draw. An infrared electrical inspection can minimize injury, liability, damage, catastrophic failures and downtime.Few investments have the substantial ROI of an infrared electrical survey.             



2. Mechanical Infrared Inspections 

Employees responsible for safety, production and equipment maintenance should conduct periodic infrared imaging surveys of all mechanical equipment to reduce failures.

When equipment experiences variations in load, environmental exposure, over/under lubrication or incorrect adjustment of it components, the end result may be increased friction between the moving parts in the system. The increased friction can cause hot spots to develop, which can be pinpointed with our high-resolution imager. As with an electrical infrared inspection, mechanical infrared is a perfect match between the diagnostic technology of Thermography and the application.

Thermal Imaging can control costs through less downtime and reduced spare parts inventory

A proactive maintenance program can help to control costs through less downtime, eliminating product loss, preventing injuries and reducing inventory for standby spare parts.

Some of the conditions detectable by an infrared mechanical inspection:

  • Misalignment of coupled equipment
  • Over and under lubrication of bearings
  • Over and under tension of belts
  • Excessive friction
  • Defective equipment

Excess heat caused by increased friction is usually the first sign of a future problem. Thermographic imaging will 'see' the increased heat finding problems while they are still small and before catastrophic failure happens. With advanced warning of failures, you have an opportunity to take preemptive and corrective action.
