Elektrovat as a part of our final quality check performs a detailed thermographic inspection of all EE work performed during the whole project. Over 30 years of experience combined with modern technology and equipment allows us to predict potential issues and by preventing them in time we minimalize the possibility of downtime at your facility. Not only this secures the highest possible performance but it also serves as an accreditation of quality, which in some cases can reduce the price of insurance for your equipment.
Predictive Maintenance Fault Finding includes infrared scanning of electrical systems. The benefit is that we can now foresee an electrical problem before the element totally fails.
We can obtain this owing to the heat build-up of any electrical element under stress and anticipate that it will break while still operational and seeming normal to the naked eye or any other test equipment. The heat signature was detected using an infrared camera. The images are then analyzed and placed in an easy-to-read report so that they may be remedied before a breakdown occurs, reducing productivity loss due to unexpected downtime.
Unexpected power outages may be both annoying and costly. Infrared electrical thermography is a valuable method for identifying stressed parts of your electrical infrastructure before they fail or cause a fire. This allows you to fix the problem as part of planned maintenance before it becomes a major issue.
The possibility of fire is another consequence of failing or strained electrical equipment; in fact, the risk is more serious than most people realize. In this regard, insurance firms are increasingly requesting infrared electrical thermography inspections as a useful risk assessment tool.
Due to the cost factor, this service was previously only available to relatively large corporations and mining corporations, but as with anything, there have been tremendous advances in the last few years and Thermo Scanning has now become a highly profitable tool in the small to medium size companies.
A yearly Infrared Thermography (thermal imaging) check of your electrical equipment, switchgear, control panels, and breakers is highly advised to identify any abnormalities that cannot be detected with the human eye. Detecting these anomalies in your critical infrastructure early guarantees that corrective action is taken before costly system breakdowns occur.
With predictive maintenance comes early detection, which allows you to avoid equipment failure and unscheduled shutdowns, both of which may be costly to your business.
