THERMAL IMAGING – ELECTRICAL APPLICATIONS
Many unseen potential problems can arise with electrical equipment & systems with our Thermal Imaging Surveys we can trace and deal with the faults prior to any costly damage occurring. Heat is generated in many different ways such as loose connections, UPS discharging, cell breakdown, corrosion and overloading and with our state-of-the-art FLIR Thermal Imaging Cameras so we can detect these unforeseen problems.
We all know what damage electrical fires can do so to be able to prevent them is a major bonus to any business. Electrical fires are responsible for 40% of all Insurance claims and 20% cause extensive damage, which could potentially run into millions in loss of production and property.
Finding potential problems will result in planned and inexpensive shut downs to resolve any faults and thus prevent unexpected costly damage, which in this day and age, can cripple any business. Insurance companies are now seeing the benefits of Thermal Imaging and are now ensuring clients carry out this preventative maintenance decreasing the chances of any insurance claims due to electrical fires. Below are a few examples of what can be found through extensive surveys:
Transformer Bushing Over Heating
Over Heating on L2 Terminal on MCCB
Over Loading on Supply Cables
Fuses over Heating
Fuse Over Heating
There are numerous benefits from carrying out Thermal Imaging Surveys of your Electrical Installations and below are some of those benefits:
- Save costs
- Improve Safety
- Prevent unplanned downtime
- Reduced Maintenance Costs
- Reduced Insurance Costs
- Improve Quality
- Reduce Energy Consumption
All our Thermal Imaging Surveys have to be carried out on Full Electrical Load but don’t worry this will not disrupt the daily running of your business. All parts of the installation need to be on full load to ensure that any weak spots will show up, generating heat. From our findings we will compile a detailed report showing all images and outlining remedial action required to rectify the problems. As part of our package, we can carry out all remedial works if so required.
