Mechanical Infrared Inspections

An electrical infrared inspection is the first step in a comprehensive predictive maintenance program.

Infrared shows issue with bearing or alignment on a conveyor motor and gearbox.

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.

An electrical infrared inspection identifies 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 an 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 risks, and in turn, lessen insurance premiums. Components of the equipment can be scanned such as motors, bearings, rollers, belt alignments and many more.

The utmost advantage of thermal imaging detection is that it allows maintenance personnel to investigate the faulty area before it even causes a problem. An electrical infrared inspection is the first step in a comprehensive predictive maintenance program.
