Infrared thermography is used to perform Preventive Predictive Maintenance inspections on equipment because excess resistance on electrical equipment indicates electrical faults such as loose connections, overloaded or imbalanced circuits, faulty breakers, damaged switches, faulty fuses and a wide range of other unwanted electrical conditions.
Before an electrical component burns up, it heats up. Thermography is used to see the excess heat (resistance) so that problems can be found and maintenance personnel can act to correct the problem before the component fails, causing damage to the component, safety hazards and or production downtime.
Advantages of using Dynamic Electric ScanIR
- Reduce Downtime
- Increase Equipment Life
- Lower Risks
- No Disruption of Service
- lower repair Costs
- Increase Profits
- Save on Insurance
- Prevent Catastrophic Failures
- Safety and Dollars are the Bottom Line
Electrical infrared surveys for Preventive/Predictive Maintenance of electrical components is recognized by most industry professionals and insurance companies. Thermal imaging or Electric ScanIR can detect hot spots in the electrical system not visible to the naked eye which may be a precursor to a larger issue. Therefore, we can inspect and locate issues before there is a costly outage.
We provide detailed, high-quality and easy to understand infrared inspection reports that thoroughly document our findings. The resulting report can be a great aid for electricians hired to do the repair the identified issues.
