All About Thermal Scanning
How Often Does My Plant and Equipment Need to be Scanned?
Frequently. The way you learn there is a problem in your electrical system is when it fails. The downtime can be costly and devastating to your business.
Before an electrical component burns up, it heats up. Early detection with infrared thermal scanning detects growing problems before they cause a system failure or fire. Maintenance personnel can correct the problem before the component fails.
Infrared thermography is used to perform inspections on electrical equipment because excess resistance on electrical apparatus indicates electrical faults such as:
- Loose connections
- Imbalanced circuits
- Faulty equipment
- Damaged switches
- Faulty fuses
- A wide range of other unwanted electrical conditions
