In the world of mechanical systems heat will most of the time point to impending trouble caused by excessive electrical resistance, lubrication failure, worn components, and other common problems. These problems can lead to expensive or even catastrophic failures and trying locate the underlying problem can be time-consuming, and manual inspection can be costly. Because thermography is non-contact and nondestructive the need for a costly shutdown or manual inspection can be eliminated sustaining normal production until a root cause is identified. This allows us to test production under normal loads and operating conditions in real time ultimately leading to a better understanding of how our machinery if functioning. In only a matter of hours thousands of points can be collected, inspected, and cataloged allowing a case history to be built for each component of concern.
Electrical system failures are frequently preceded by a considerable period of increased heat in the faulty components of the system. If the increase in the component heat is detected in time, repairs can be performed before a failure occurs. Infrared thermography is the primary tool tool that can identify areas of abnormality.
What faults can be detected?
Infrared thermography can detect several conditions that may undermine the operational efficiency of your systems. These include overloads, loose connections, inductive heating, open circuits, harmonics, unbalanced loads and defective equipment.
With the high speed at which complex industrial processes run, sudden failure may create hazardous conditions. This could include flying debris that may hurt your workers. By detecting electrical problems in good time, the tool helps to avoid fires caused by overloaded circuits or faulty wiring.
Inspections using infrared thermography will help in detecting problems and allow for repairs. This will mean fewer downtimes and interruptions in production which will lead to increased productivity, and significant financial savings.
Product quality is dependent on a processes that runs reliably and consistently. When you can deal with electrical problems before failure occurs your systems can operate optimally. This will greatly simplify your delivery quality products.
Lower insurance premiums
With reduced losses and improved your cash flow you will pay lower premiums for commercial insurance coverage that protects against interruptions.
Infrared thermography allows you to perform inspections without interruptions to your process during the inspection as the inspection can be done while systems are running. This will also help to improve your profits.
