Whether it is electrical, mechanical or process related, equipment failure can result in costly downtime, lost production, safety hazards and increased maintenance costs. Normally, equipment gets hotter before it fails and your plant’s equipment is no exception!
Benefits of Infrared Thermography
Heat is often a sign of wear and stress. Fining the hotspots is critical in diagnosing maintenance items on your electric motors.
Finding hotspots and signs of wear are a great way to find problems that aren't otherwise visible. Save money by avoiding downtime with Infrared Thermography.
Hot spots on electrical equipment aren't only signs of stress but could result in a catastrophic failure or combustion. Seeing hotspots with infrared thermography can increase safety by recognizing issues before a catastrophic failure happens.
Knowing where problems are by seeing them with infrared thermography helps you correct problems early and improve the reliability of your equipment.
State-of-the-Art Infrared Camera Detects Hot Spots
Infrared thermography is a technology which allows us to see and measure thermal energy. This energy is captured as an image by a state-of-the-art infrared camera. The images are then processed, analyzed and stored with our advanced computer software.
Magneto Electric’s certified infrared thermographers will help improve your plant’s reliability by applying this technology to any of the following areas:
- Motor control centres
- Main feeder panels
- Bus ducts
- Electrical connections
- Distribution panels
- Steam systems (traps and lines)
- Mechanical (belts, bearings, etc.)
- Insulation and refractory
- Building thermography
