Infrared/Termography Programs

infra1

Infrared programs are used to detect possible (future) problems

  1. Mechanical Thermography

Mechanical Thermography is the safest, non-intrusive and most efficient technique for identifying faulty & overheated components in mechanical equipment.

Cost-effective and with immediate results – A Mechanical Thermography Survey enables you to prevent equipment failures and save hundreds of hours of wasted time in routine testing of components.

Using Thermal Imaging technology to capture heat-generated images – Maintenance Holding Infrared Thermography Survey provides an instant, precise, non-contact analysis of plant & machinery condition to highlight faulty components such as bearings, motors, fuses, relays, steam pipes, drive gears & belts.

All identified problems are discussed during the survey, and our accompanying Mechanical Thermography report:

  • Highlights all faults & problem areas
  • Provides an assessment of fault severity
  • Offers engineer’s recommendations for required corrective maintenance
  • Includes accompanying photographs and thermal images of precise fault location

No special preparations are necessary – a Maintenance Holding Mechanical Thermography Survey is conducted quickly, safely and with no interruption to machinery operation – the information gathered enables you to target your maintenance resources where they’re needed most.

  1. Electrical Thermographyinfra2

Electrical systems are the most critical items within office buildings and industrial applications. There are considerable benefits to be gained by protecting these systems and reducing unplanned stoppages. Thermography is ideal for carrying out Electrical Safety Inspections, be it to source that loose bus-bar connection or that overloaded component in your main electrical panel.

Infrared technology gives us the ability to “see” and measure temperatures on defective components and the normal wear, chemical contamination, corrosion, fatigue and faulty assembly in many electrical systems. The resistance or molecular friction produced within these problem areas is visible in the infrared spectrum and visible to the infrared camera. Overheating can occur in virtually all electrical components and hardware including generators, transformers, fuse connections, switchgear, starters, contactors and any other hardware one might imagine.

In transmission- and distribution systems, thermographic surveys can help cut production losses and prevent the eventual failure of these systems.

Electrical fires represent 40% of fire loss insurance costs in industry and 20% of large scale fire incidents. Accidents are commonly caused by loose connections, weakening of isolation, obstructed cooling and mechanical damage. Fire Insurance providers are more commonly asking for evidence that you undertook a Thermographic Survey of your electrical equipment, when renewing or commencing insurance cover.
