Thermographic Inspections

Thermograohic inspections should be a regular part of a predictive maintenance programme. An indication of impending faults in mechanical and elctrical systems and components is an increased temperature due to resistance and friction.

The temperature increase can be slected and quantified using the latest thermal cameras. State-of-the-art thermal infra-red cameras and an image of the temperature distribution of the component can be obtained. Should any part of the component be significantly warmer than similar parts, a recording of the suspect component is taken. The magnitude of temperature rise will be illustrated and the seriousness of the fault can be determined.
