Improving Your Facility




Are you concerned about a possible electrical fire at your facility?


Do you have an older building where the electrical systems need checking?


Does your insurance company give a discount for having a thermal scan done?


If you answered “Yes”, we can help!

Many fires in commercial facilities are electrical in nature and many can be prevented.  Excessive heat generated by an electrical or mechanical device is normally a by-product of another issue like loose terminal connections, corroded wires, poorly greased or failing bearing, etc.  Northgate helps you "aim your effort" by identifying potential problem areas that need further investigation to improve the safety and

efficiency of electrical equipment, building structures and other apparatus. Some of the many objects that can be scanned are transformers,

electrical switchboards, transmission lines, circuit breakers, fuses, and switches. Through scanning of such objects it will be possible to lessen the chances of risks and therefore lessen insurance premiums.  Components of your equipment can be scanned such as motors, bearings, rollers, belt alignments and many more.  The utmost advantage of thermal image detection though is that it allows maintenance personnel to investigate the faulty area before it even causes a problem.  Thermal imaging  is the first step in a comprehensive predictive maintenance program.

What is it that we can inspect?


       Electrical Equipment


  • Primary power source

  • Switchgear

  • Transformers

  • Low voltage installations

  • Fuse panels

  • Motor control centers (MCC)

  • Electrical cabinets




     Mechanical Equipment


  • Heating Systems

  • Motors (overheating bearings, misalignment, overheated windings)

  • Pumps (overheated connections, fuse problems, overloaded electrical cables etc)

  • Process valves (open, closed, leakage)

  • Storage tanks (sludge levels)

  • Pipelines (check if and where there are anomalies, for example locate build up of scale etc)


    Building Envelope

Predictive maintenance is where most forward thinking facilities want to be with their maintenance

department.  Northgate Energy Solutions and Thermal Imaging offers a variety of cost saving services

related to predictive maintenance for these facilities.  The main services offered revolve around thermal

imaging, normally on a yearly basis.  By providing a yearly electrical scan issues can be identified and

corrected preventing possible entire building downtime or even catastrophic fire.  Savings from this

service can be realized by reduction in downtime and possible deduction in insurance rate.  Northgate is

a thermal imaging company located in Fargo, ND that cares about assisting its clients with most effective

allocation of its maintenance effort. 

Northgate Energy Solutions and Thermal Imaging, LLC is located in Fargo, ND, we serve all of  North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota.  Will Travel anywhere requested.
