Infrared Predicative Maintenance – Electrical Equipment There is a growing need to monitor electrical installations / equipment for Safety & Due Diligence reasons, excessive energy consumption and to reduce unnecessary down time due to unforeseen / premature failures. Any electrical apparatus that has a heat signature (cold - such as a refrigerator door seal or hot - a vacuum pump) can be readily identified using infrared techniques. There is no other preventative technology or technique that can identify defects on faulty electrical equipment as safely or as quickly, whilst causing no interruption to the normal working operation of business. In fact, testing requires apparatus to be under normal load conditions.An infrared survey can be used as a non-invasive tool for routine maintenance or to comply with insurance requirements, identifying arcing/overheating of poor connections, potential fire risks, phase imbalances and overloading circuits. This allows for the early detection of faults that could present risk to health and the working environment. A failure within electrical infrastructures can have far reaching consequences, creating unnecessary downtime and budgetary implications. Avoiding such eventualities can be easily managed when operating a routine approach to inspection.

OUR METHODOLOGYOur approach to predictive maintenance is non-destructive, discreet and methodical, undertaken during normal operational load conditions. We survey in conjunction with your Electrician. This speeds the surveying process and allows some simple remedial works to be carried out on the spot. All results from the survey are recorded in a document forming a written and visual reference for future comparison. The document will form part of your pre “Annual Shutdown” Maintenance routine.
As good practice, we recommend our clients undertake before and after surveys to check remedial works have been carried out successfully. Our surveys are impartial, confidential and do not invalidate guarantees.
