Thermal Imaging Survey
Thermal imaging can be used to discover electrical problems within distribution boards or electrical panels in:
- Care Homes
- Retail premises
- Industrial locations
What are the benefits of Thermal Image Scanning?
Using thermal imaging as a method to facilitate early detection of equipment failure will directly benefit you as follows:
- Cost savings – No other preventative method is as cost effective as thermal scanning. If you take the necessary precautions, thermal scanning will assist you in minimising your downtime, protecting your business.
- Non-destructive testing – We can easily identify heat related external anomalies without having to disconnect or destroy any equipment. We can also usually identify internal equipment failure.
- Minimises workplace hazards e.g. Reduces the possibility of fire.
- Early detection of any potential faults.
The electrical system will need to be “under load” during the Thermal Imaging inspection. This means it will need to be conducted during working hours with all equipment in use. However, the inspection is non-intrusive and does not usually require the electrical system to be isolated or result in disruption of business.
Depending on your type of system Thermal Imaging should usually be carried out on an annual basis, or sooner if machinery is fundamental to a heavily used process, to supplement the electrical fixed wiring inspection, test and report – it should become a key part of the planned preventive maintenance programme.
Following the survey, a full report including photos and maximum heat sources, within electrical distribution boards and panels, can be provided. The report details any potential problems found and what actions need to be taken to remedy the findings.
GlenFarrow, offers a service that utilises thermal imaging technology to locate issues before they become problems. Our thermal camera will detect overheating, arcing, loose connections and over load problems before a fire occurs, avoiding the disruption of organisations and putting people at risk.
