Electrical: Malfunctions in electrical equipment will often result in an increased heat signature. This allows a thermographer to identify faulty equipment or wiring before it has reached failure or even been noticed. Factors such as emissivity, reflection, and temperature deltas become exceedingly important when working with electrical components in tight spaces. Discovering these deficiencies in a timely manner prevents catastrophic failures, allowing our customers to plan for maintenance and set priorities more efficiently.
Common electrical equipment to be inspected include but are not limited to: switchgear, breakers, transformers, panel boards, capacitor banks, MCC’s, fuses, connection points, and terminations.
