Electrical Infrared Inspection Services and Thermal Imaging in New Jersey

infrared inspection of electronic equipmentInfrared thermography is used to perform Preventive & Predictive Maintenance inspections on equipment because relationship with resistance on electrical equipment indicates electrical faults such as loose connections, overloaded or imbalanced circuits, faulty breakers, damaged switches, faulty fuses and a wide range of other unwanted electrical conditions.

Before an electrical component fails as result from heat, Isolate and repair electrical problems before they occur with our electrical IR Inspections. Thermography is used to see the excess heat from (resistance) so that problems can conveyed to maintenance personnel then act to correct the problem before the component fails, causing damage to the component, Reduce interruption and increase revenues with an infrared electrical test. Also reduce safety hazards and or production downtime.

Theory: As electrical current flows through a conductor, heat is generated. Many electrical defects are accompanied by a rise in temperature for up to several weeks prior to failure. Some defects may be represented as cool components.

What Can Be Detected?

Benefits of Electrical IR:

  • Locate problems quickly, without service interrupting
  • Drastically reduce costly, unscheduled power outages
  • Minimize preventive maintenance time and maximize troubleshooting effectiveness
  • Prevent premature failure and extend equipment life
  • Identify potentially dangerous and hazardous equipment
  • Reduce insurance premiums and deductible payments
  • Reduce Downtime
  • Liability- Lower Risks
  • No Disruption of Service
  • lower repair Costs
  • Increase Revenues
  • Save on Insurance
  • Prevent Catastrophic Failures
  • Safety and Dollars are the Bottom Line

Electric IR logoWe can perform IR Inspections/Survey: Electrical distribution systems, Motor rebuilding, Dry  or liquid filled type transformers, Breaker control cabinets, Outdoor substations arrestors, Electrical Switchgears, Parallel Feed Conductors, Electrical A/C or D/C capacitors, Single phase power panels, Electrical UPS systems, Emergency power systems, Load Break Elbows, MMC Buckets, Lightning Arrestors, PLC cabinets, Lighting Circuit Breakers, Electrical Bus Ducts, Grounding systems.

Electrical infrared surveys for Preventive/Predictive Maintenance of electrical components is recognized by most industry professionals and insurance companies. Thermal imaging or Electric ScanIR can detect hot spots in the electrical system not visible to the naked eye which may be a precursor to a larger issue. Therefore, we can inspect and locate issues before there is a costly outage. An annual inspection can increase safety and can be used by an insurance company to assess the potential risk of a commercial business.

We provide detailed, high-quality and easy to understand infrared inspection reports that thoroughly document our findings.The resulting report can be a great aid for electricians hired to do the repair the identified issues.

Infrared Predictive Maintenance (P/PM) Explained

Infrared thermography is used to perform P/PM inspections on electrical equipment because excess resistance on electrical apparatus indicates electrical faults such as loose connections, overloaded or imbalanced circuits, faulty breakers, damaged switches, faulty fuses and a wide range of other unwanted electrical conditions.
Before an electrical component burns up, it heats up. Thermography is used to see the excess heat (resistance) so that problems can be found and maintenance personnel can act to correct the problem before the component fails, causing damage to the component, safety hazards and/or production downtime.

Infrared Thermal Imaging Services perform inspection to Infraspection Standard for Infrared Inspection of Electrical Systems & Rotating Equipment.
