Thermal Imaging Inspections are widely used to identify electrical system faults such as poor connections, faulty equipment and more. They do this by pinpointing any hot spots that are invisible to the naked eye. When electrical systems begin to deteriorate, they give off heat, that a Thermal Imaging Scan can detect.
Thermography is also popularly known as infrared inspections – based on sensing the heat produced from an object’s surface in infrared radiation form. Without regular thermography inspections, you may be at the risk of incurring additional power usage, higher maintenance expenditures, or hazardous equipment failure. These problems subsequently result in spontaneous service disruptions, equipment destruction and emergency maintenance costs.
Why is Thermal Imaging Important?
Thermal Imaging is the most intensive, remote, non-intrusive inspection available. It determines the integrity and safety of electrical equipment with absolute confidence. Receiving annual Thermal Inspections is the most efficient and reliable way to prevent electrical faults, and maintain and monitor healthy systems. Getting thermography scans annually is the safest, easiest and most cost-effective way to ensure safety and mitigate foreseeable electrical malfunctions. Note however, some building infrastructures might require thermal image scans every 6 months, depending on various environmental factors.
Any commercial property can reap the advantages of a thermographic scan. When done at least once a year you get a far more accurate understanding of the underlying electrical systems in your premises. The test can assess equipment such as circuit panels, transformers, switchgear, and more. Based on the results of the scan, the rescan is then scheduled based on the equipment type, power usage, and the age of your electrical systems.
CERTIFIED Thermal Inspection Specialists Need Only Apply!
By now you know why thermoscan inspections are so important, but what’s equally as important, is ensuring that you only hire Certified Thermal Inspection Specialists.
It takes a trained technician to identify any electrical faults for the two main following reasons:
- They are not visible to the naked eye
- Untrained operators are highly likely to incorrectly interpret the data displayed by a thermal inspection meter.
Hiring a certified thermal inspection specialist becomes incredibly vital as they understand infrared cameras, how to properly detect any faults and moreover, the next steps to put in place once the inspection is over. Electric system failures can not only cause severe system breakdowns and incur tremendous financial losses, but these such failures can also be dangerous to occupants of a building by exposing those within the vicinity to live electrical circuits. With commercial switchboards this can lead to extremely serious injuries, including fatal electrocution.
