Electrical Contacts and circuit are a common application for the use of Infrared Thermal Imaging. As shown in the Infrared images (see gallery), clearly identify hot spots of which could have failed or caused fire if left unattended. An Infrared Thermal Inspection on this site prevented possible down time, loss of stock and revenue, and most importantly maintained safety on the site.
It is becoming common for Insurance Companies to request a Thermal Scan of your onsite electrical switch boards on a yearly or bi-yearly basis.
With increasing demand to cut costs and remain competitive, many companies are expanding their maintenance programs to include predictive and proactive technologies such as Infrared Thermography. Thermal Imaging is an important technology for predictive maintenance and condition monitoring in any reliability program. It is extremely useful in detecting early potential failures in electrical and mechanical systems so orderly planning and scheduling can be completed with lower operational disruption.
