Infrared Thermography

Is the science of acquisition and analysis of thermal information from non-contact thermal imaging devices.

The technology is used for condition monitoring and/or preventative maintenance to optimise maintenance and keep production running smoothly and safely at the lowest possible cost.

An infrared camera is used to pick up "hot spots" in panels, distribution boards and substations.  After completion of an inspection, a report is produced and handed to the client.

Key benefits:

  • Prevent/minimize downtime
  • Increase up-time
  • Ensure effective power management
  • Maintain productivity
  • Prevent or minimise equipment failure.
  • Increase safety
  • Prioritise maintenance scheduling
  • Successful Health & Safety Audits
  • Cost saving due to prevention of breakdowns.
