- Infrared Thermography Scanning
Infrared Scanning of electrical installations falls under classification of Predictive Maintenance Fault Finding. The value is that we are now able to predict an electrical fault before the element fails completely.
We can get this due to the heat build-up of any electrical element under stress and predict that it will fail while it is still functional and appears normal to the naked eye or any other test equipment. The heat signature identified with the use of an Infrared camera. The pictures are then analysed and put into an easy-to-follow report so that they can rectify before a breakdown occurs, preventing loss of production due to unplanned down time.
Unexpected breakdowns in electrical supply can inconvenient and costly. Infrared electrical thermography is a useful tool that can recognize stressed elements of your electrical installation before they break down or cause a fire. This gives you the opportunity to solve the problem as part of planned maintenance before it causes a serious problem.
Another result of failed or stressed electrical elements is the risk of fire; in fact the risk is more real than commonly realise. It is in this vein that insurance companies are increasingly calling for infrared electrical thermography surveys as a valuable risk assessment aid.
In the past this service was only available to very large companies and mining houses due to the cost determinant, but as with everything there have been massive advancements in the last few years and Thermo Scanning has now become a very profitable tool in the small to medium size business world.
Thermography inspection generally uses infrared instrumentation to scan and create a temperature profile of intended targets.
Benefits of Doing Thermography Testing of Electrical Panel
- Determines if the components and system have been properly installed and are not damaged
- Reduces downtime
- Reduces risk of equipment failure
- Increases safety
- Improves insurability
- Reduces liability exposure of the designers and installers
- Improves system performance
- Determines whether components and systems operate properly and meet the design intent
- Determines if components and systems are in compliance with the project specifications and design
- Reduces construction schedule delays
- Saves money
- UPS Monthly Service
Every component of your critical infrastructure is designed for reliability, performance, and efficiency. And it should be that way. But each of these components, regardless of if it is a battery from your power system, an entire UPS or a thermal management unit, is comprised of pieces that must be proactively serviced to ensure proper functionality. That is why we're here. To help you boost the system performance in your data centre and avoid costly problems, by implementing a preventive maintenance program.
