The Benefits of Electrical Thermal Imaging Inspections

The Benefits of Electrical Thermal Imaging Inspections

Thermal imaging inspections can help to prevent fires, explosions or breakdowns on electrical equipment and plant . It can find loose connections, overloaded and/or fatigued components, uneven voltage distribution and blockages in cooling tubes of transformers. The principal advantage over other types of testing and inspection is the ease with which components can be checked in a non-intrusive and safer way. Other benefits are normal operations can continue unabated with limited downtime and large installations with hundreds of electrical installations can be covered in a short space of time.

So why do you need electrical thermal imaging inspections.

It’s a very cost-effective way of ensuring that your electrical system doesn’t burn out or break down. This is especially important in industries with high voltage systems and/or where continuity of power is critical to the business, e.g. data centres, banks, utility suppliers, manufacturing, hospitals.

The most common benefits are:

                • Extension of equipment/building life
                • Less plant (critical asset) down time
                • Less energy wasted through inefficient operation.
                • The ability to prioritise and better target preventive maintenance
                • The avoidance of consequential damage to plant or facilities from fires/short circuits

Our clients include:

                • Office Blocks
