WHEN PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE
Almost every physical component overheats before it fails. By undertaking a thermographic analysis on your machinery and plant it is possible for us to detect the start of damage at an early stage and to rectify it. This increases the safety and reliability of your plant. Thermography is a non-contact diagnostics technique that makes it possible to inspect your machinery and plant even when it is in operation. Even difficult to access objects can be measured thermographically. Mechanical and electrical weak spots can then be detected before they cause a failure. The evaluation of discovered hot-spots is an important element of the thermographic analysis. The results are evaluated by our specialist personnel and documented in a detailed report. Regular thermographic inspections produce a trend analysis that can detect gradually increasing variations and thus make it possible for you to take timely action.
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. Overheating can occur in virtually all electrical components and hardware including generators, transformers, fuse connections, switchgear, starters, contactors and any other electrical hardware one might imagine.
Electrical fires represent a large part of fire loss insurance costs in industry. Accidents are commonly caused by loose connections, weakening of isolations, 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.
