Since most problems in an electrical system are preceded by a change in its thermal characteristics and temperature, a properly trained and experienced thermographer is able to identify and analyze these problems prior to a costly failure occurring.
Thermelec (Qld) technicians can conduct a survey as part of an electrical maintenance plan and pinpoint a potential fault before it turns into a costly failure.
Thermelec (Qld) can assist you in implementing an annual infrared inspection schedule for your electrical or mechanical equipment.
The benefits of regular infrared inspections as part of an electrical maintenance plan are immense.
They include:[box type=”bio”] The reduction of disassembling, rebuilding or repairing components which are in good operating condition. Infrared thermography can identify a potential fault if it exists in that component and avoid unnecessary and costly maintenance.[/box] [box type=”bio”] Problems that do exist will be identified quickly, giving time to repair the problem before a failure. In most cases the problem is identified well before the problem becomes critical.[/box] [box type=”bio”] Failure of electrical components could be catastrophic, injuring or killing employees or the public. This is a safety issue and possible litigation could be filed against the company if negligence is proven. Insurance premiums could also be reduced.[/box] [box type=”bio”] With less maintenance on good components and faster repairs of faulty components, electrical maintenance costs are reduced leading to a better bottom line.[/box] [box type=”bio”]The cost of an emergency outage is ten times greater than scheduled electrical maintenance.[/box] [box type=”bio”] More efficient inspections during electrical maintenance. No service interruption is required for infrared inspections.[/box] [box type=”bio”] Proactive electrical maintenance incorporating infrared inspections will reduce outages and the overall cost of operations.[/box]
