imaging incorporates the use of specially designed infrared video or still
cameras to make images that expose surface heat variations. Thermograms
(thermographic images) can detect abnormally hot, blocked or overloaded
electrical systems and expose unusual heat patterns in mechanical systems
created by excessive friction, among a number of other safety-related and
economical applications. Thermographic imaging is a non-invasive
OF SCHEDULING PERIODIC THERMOGRAPHIC TESTING
inspection of your production and processing equipment and controls
can expose and pinpoint an area that is faulty or in danger of causing
severe future damage, which can be very costly and time-consuming to
correct if allowed to run its course. A simple part replacement is
often all that is needed to prevent a major future repair
imaging allows you to see what the naked eye cannot. What appears to
be a fully functioning & operational piece of equipment, system or
installation could in fact be on the verge of a catastrophic
failure. This is especially true of older systems, which have a
higher incidence of wear & tear.
Production Down Time
business owner knows, down time is costly and can be frustrating for
management, employees, and also for the customer, who may be waiting for a
product or service. This pitfall may be avoided by scheduling
regular thermographic inspections that will allow you to see and correct a
problem before it shuts down your operation.
risk of personal injury by implementing a reliable safety program that
includes regular thermographic testing.
By isolating areas in your structure that are
vulnerable to heat & energy loss, steps can then be taken to ensure a
more energy-efficient operation.
