Electrical Thermography

Electrical systems are the most critical items within office buildings and industrial applications. There are considerable benefits to be gained by protecting these systems and reducing unplanned stoppages. Thermography is ideal for carrying out Electrical Safety Inspections, be it to source that loose bus-bar connection or that overloaded component in your main electrical panel.

Infrared technology gives us the ability to "see" and measure temperatures on defective components and the normal wear, chemical contamination, corrosion, fatigue and faulty assembly in many electrical systems. The resistance or molecular friction produced within these problem areas is visible in the infrared spectrum and visible to the infrared camera. Overheating can occur in virtually all electrical components and hardware including generators, transformers, fuse connections, switchgear, starters, contactors and any other hardware one might imagine.

In transmission and distribution systems thermographic surveys can help cut production losses and prevent the eventual failure of these systems.

Electrical fires represent 40% of fire loss insurance costs in industry and 20% of large scale fire incidents. Accidents are commonly caused by loose connections, weakening of isolations, obstructed cooling and mechanical damage. Fire Insurance providers are more commonly asking for evidence that you undertook a Thermographic Survey of your electrical equipment, when renewing or commencing insurance cover.
