Hot spots are difficult to detect unless an annual thermal scan is undertaken. Visible clues alone are clearly not effective indicators of overheating switchboards. Sometimes it’s too late to prevent serious fire.
Thermal imaging allows faults to be identified while equipment is operational reducing the potential for failure and preventing unforeseen downtime and associated costs.
Applications of thermal imaging include inspection of your electrical equipment and distribution system, heat exchangers, missing or damaged refactory or insulation layers, and energy loss. At Torney & Allen we use an infrared camera to take infrared photographs of thermal anomalies:
