Thermal Imaging - the benefits
Updated: Jun 24, 2022
Thermal Imaging has fast become one of, if not, the most cost effective and valuable diagnostic tools for predictive and preventative maintenance. This form of maintenance offers truly unique benefits that in most cases cannot be matched.
With this in mind, we thought we'd list some of the qualities that makes thermal imaging so effective and unique as an electrical compliance service.
The benefits of thermal imaging:
Non intrusive - Thermal imaging offers the perfect solution to surveying and inspecting of a premises, whilst remaining totally non destructive to the normal operation of that workplace, allowing for systems to continue running smoothly without needing any shutdown of power etc.
Early detection - By detecting early deterioration to electrical systems that would likely go unnoticed using older more conventional checks, thermal imaging allows for early scheduling of repairs before any defects become truly disastrous and unmanageable.
Identify causes of electrical hotspots - Hotspots identified in a thermal image report help to locate and help us understand what faults may be occurring in an electrical system. These faults could range from the following: Mistakes in the wiring / unbalanced loads / loose or deteriorated connections / overloaded systems / insulation and/or failure.
Avoid loss of revenue - Implementing thermal imaging as a key part of your electrical compliance and preventative maintenance program, will see fewer unexpected failures, in turn, reducing stoppages to workflow that can affect a company financially, cutting into their bottom line.
Inspect hard to reach systems - Thermal cameras allow for measurements to be taken from a fair distance, meaning that normally out of range systems that are not possible to reach with standard inspection, can be reached and inspected through thermal imaging.
