Things are good, until they aren't.
Lets keep it good :)
Infrared Scans On Electrical Systems
Prevent the overheating of electrical equipment leading to electrical fires, and boost overall efficiency of your electrical system
In-floor plumbing, electric heat trace, metal clad insulation. An infrared scan can clearly show the efficiency of your concealed heating lines
Thermal & Moisture Detection
Perfect for pre/post home and commercial renovations. Detect poorly insulated areas, and see moisture/water infiltration that you cannot see with the naked eye
Providing accurate information regarding the integrity of your electrical system’s components cuts down on maintenance time, prevents costly replacements and can eliminate unforeseen outages and downtime. An infrared (thermal) electrical inspection survey can help:
Maintain the integrity of your facility’s electrical system
Reduces electrical fire hazards
Provide uninterrupted power to tenants/clients/employees
Detect faulty connections/overloaded circuits
Provide a snapshot in time of the condition of your mechanical systems, motors, bearings, etc.
Preventative or predictive maintenance programs save money by reducing:
Pre-mature equipment failure
Overnight shipment of parts
Insurance premiums (many insurance companies give discounts for performing regular infrared inspections)
Loss of revenue due to downtime
IN-FLOOR HEATING SURVEY
As the pipes are hidden beneath flooring rather than exposed like radiators, one of the best ways of verifying the performance of an underfloor heating system is by using thermal imaging technology. A thermal imaging camera can detect heat patterns through flooring, thereby showing where a system is effective. This is particularly useful when tracing systems in a property, checking newly installed underfloor heating, and detecting problems in existing systems
SOLAR PANEL INSPECTIONS
Thermal imaging cameras are capable of showing a number of problems. such as defects in cells (impurities/gas pockets or cracks), temporary shadowing (dirt, pollution, humidity, bird droppings), defective bypass diode, or faulty interconnections.
Most problems will show as a hot spot or cold spot although defective bypass diodes display as a ‘patchwork’ pattern and show abnormalities on the thermal image where faulty interconnectors have resulted in a module or string being hotter than its surroundings
IT'S ALL IN THE
Each report is compiled to keep track of the status of each piece of equipment scanned, so we can identify deterioration over time. In addition, every piece of equipment scanned gets a unique identification sticker which is catalogued for condition comparison each year the scan is conducted.
Below is an excerpt from a report we completed recently from a trusted client. Fortunately, the equipment you see below was found to be in good working order and needed no further attention.
As you see below, our technicians record amperage readings to assist in their evaluation of the equipment being scanned. Proper diagnosis of some abnormalities that are discovered with an infrared camera are further confirmed with the amperage readings showing unbalance phasing excess current on electrical wires.
Due to the non-contact and non-invasive nature of thermal imaging, thermographers can carry out thermal analysis inspections while the plant or equipment is still fully operational.
Thermal imaging can detect faulty components or systems at an early stage, thus allowing the company to plan and conduct remedial work within a scheduled maintenance window. By early fault detection, damage to vital operational systems may be avoided saving thousands of dollars in unexpected down-time.
ACCURACY & SPEED
Thermal imaging surveys can quickly scan and measure the temperature distribution of entire surfaces of electrical and mechanical equipment under normal load conditions, eliminating the need for pre-inspection work and lengthy preparation.
Thermal imaging cameras (or infrared cameras), are passive instruments meaning they detect infrared energy emitted of the subjects surface. This passive and non-invasive approach ensures the thermographer can maintain a safe distance from the potentially hazardous equipment. Furthermore, there is no potential for damage to occur to the systems or equipment as a result of the thermal survey.
FEWER OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY ISSUES
Intervention through early detection can prevent hazardous equipment failure, personal harm, and risk of fire. As an added bonus, and depending on your insurance policy, you may also be eligible for a discount in your insurance premiums.
INFRARED THERMOGRAPHY MEETS RISK COMPLIANCE
Thermographic surveys support the processes involved in regulatory compliance with Health and Safety Legislation while meeting insurance specified risk assessment and prevention criteria.
WHY IT MATTERS
With no piece of equipment being created equal and no infrared scan being the same, Dynamic Thermal Imaging has thoroughly reviews each inspection point throughout the report for thermal irregularities. Our team makes no assumptions on the state of the equipment being scanned and base our report on the expert technical knowledge of our technicians at the time of the scan. This inspection method leaves the customer knowing the exact condition of specific electrical equipment throughout the facility, which can be easily translated to an increased component operational life and improved worker and environmental safety.
