Thermographic Analysis Surveys help prevent potential breakdown situations and is a cost effective form of analysis for identifying electrical and mechanical faults on a wide range of electrical equipment, pumps and motors
DD Electrical thermal imaging survey is a non-evasive and non-destructive procedure using infrared technology.
Electrical and mechanical systems are the backbone of many manufacturing operations. An unexpected shutdown of even a minor piece of equipment could have a major impact on production. Since nearly everything gets hot before it fails, thermal inspection is a valuable and cost-effective diagnostic tool with many industrial applications.
Applications for infrared testing include locating loose electrical connections, failing transformers, improper bushing and bearing lubrication, overloaded motors or pumps, coupling misalignment, and other applications where a change in temperature will indicate an undesirable condition. Since typical electrical failures occur when there is a temperature rise of over 50°C, problems can be detected well in advance of a failure.
Thermographic survey using a thermal imaging camera can be used on different types of equipment including:
- Distribution boards and fuse boards
- High voltage systems
- Control panels
- UPS systems
- Switchgears and switchboards
Using Thermographic equipment on electrical infrastructure is a renowned method of preventive maintenance and done correctly it can be effective at fault finding prior to equipment failure. Our strict protocols ensure that the faults we document are indeed items that require investigation and possibly remedial work and not simply loaded circuits manifesting temperature.
