Thermographic Imaging Surveys

Thermography is carried out to eliminate any costly system failures that may occur within a business.

 

Thermal Imaging has evolved into one of the most valuable diagnostic tools used for and uses a non-contact infrared, or “heat” pictures from which temperature measurements can be made and therefore looks for hot spots within your electrical systems.

 

With a thermal imaging camera, our Engineers can examine your electrical system to predict when any maintenance is required, preventing potential faults from disrupting day-to-day activities. As electrical connections become loose, there is a resistance to current that can cause an increase in temperature. This increased temperature can then cause components to fail, potentially resulting in unplanned outages and injuries. In addition, the efficiency of an electrical grid becomes low prior to failure, thus energy is spent generating heat, causing unnecessary losses. If left unchecked, heat can rise to a point where connections melt and break the circuit; as a result, fires may occur.

 

In addition to heat, electrical systems suffer from load imbalances, corrosion, and Increase in impedance to current. Thermography can quickly locate these and determine the severity of the problem, and help establish the time frame in which the equipment should be repaired.

 

Best practice would suggest that when you have your installation Tested & Inspected (EICR) you should also look to have a Thermal Imaging Survey Undertaken.
