If connections become loose this can create a resistance to current that can cause an increase in temperature. If left unchecked, heat can rise to a point where connections melt and break the circuit, which will cause system failures and lead to a potential fire risk. Besides loose connections, electrical systems can suffer from other common issues such as load imbalances and corrosion. Thermal imaging can quickly locate hot spots and problem areas where this may be occurring, so that the issue can be rectified before it becomes a major problem.
Thermal imaging can increase reliability and efficiency of your equipment, resulting in reduced failures and breakdowns and can significantly reduce maintenance costs and production losses.
As a complementary test to the electrical periodic test and inspection, it can help to ensure the integrity and safety of your electrical systems and equipment. Thermal image surveys can be incorporated into your existing maintenance contract or be carried out as a one off test. While we are on site with the diagnostic tool you can also take advantage of this service to check other equipment that you may have concerns with, so please contact our sales team to arrange a visit.
