Mechanical Infrared Inspections

Infrared shows issue on 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 equipments, 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 lessens the chances of risks and therefore 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 though 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.
