CONDITION MONITORING

INSPECTION SERVICES

Where temperature is a key factor IR Thermal Imaging is one of the best tools for predictive maintenance

Some of the benefits of infrared thermography for condition monitoring include:

  • Significantly reduce breakdowns due to power failures
  • Detect problems in real time, without any down time to operations
  • Reduce preventive maintenance and troubleshooting time
  • Review priorities for remedial action
  • Inspect equipment for defects while still under manufacturer warranty
  • Meet insurance company requirements.

REDUCING UNPLANNED DOWNTIME = HIGH COST SAVINGS!

There are a great many applications for thermography. Some are listed here:

Electrical Infrastructure

  • Power generation and transmission
  • Substation inspections including transformers and capacitor banks, switchgear and circuit breakers,
  • Overhead urban and rural distribution electrical inspections.
  • Electrical Switch Boards
  • Electrical motor inspections.
