To ensure the integrity of electrical installations for reduced down time, fire and safety, or insurance company compliance, we highly recommend performing Infrared Thermal Imaging of electrical installations to find overheating in connections and components, or faulty components. Spot Electrical Issues -Count the number of motors, circuit breakers, and other electrical equipment in your building – are you confident they’re all working properly? Through the use of thermal imagers the following pending problems can be identified: Circuits that are overheating or motor bearings that are about to fail.
Loose connections and dirt will create additional resistance over time, which causes them to overheat. This can result in the loss of one of the phases of a three-phase system, increasing the risk of a fire or power failure. Using thermography for predictive maintenance is a great way to catch problems that could blossom into major failures down the road.
