Infrared Imaging Services LLC Announces Thermal Imaging for Electrical Switchgear
“Increased heat and risk of fire in electrical systems can be caused by component age, fatigue, oxidation, wear, loose connections or poor installation. We use state-of-the-art infrared imagers to identify hot spots”. States the owner Mr. Swirnow
Before an electrical component burns up, it heats up. Infrared thermography is used to perform inspections on electrical equipment because excess heat is usually the first sign of trouble. These failures come in the form of loose connections, imbalanced circuits, defective breakers, damaged switches, faulty fuses or fuse clips, overloaded circuits, workmanship or material defects and a wide range of other conditions which eventually lead to excess heat and component failure
“Even new components and systems can be faulty or installed poorly" states Mr. Swirnow. "It’s quite common during our inspections to find new components such as beakers, switches and panels which are defective. That’s why we recommend infrared electrical inspections on new installations to help detect and document incipient failures, while the work is still under warranty. Combined with timely, effective repairs, an infrared electrical survey can improve reliability, reduce the risk of fire and help to reduce unscheduled down time”.
“Infrared imaging is the one single, fast, non contact diagnostic technology which can detect many types of electrical problems and have an immediate impact on finding hot connections. This means that there is now a certified company in the local area using the latest technology which can provide quality standards-compliant infrared inspections of your electrical systems”.
Infrared Imaging services LLC is a staff instructor for the Infraspection Institute and a member of United Infrared.
