Thermax Infrared Electrical Inspection

Infrared Thermography
for Proactive Maintenance

Thermal vision:
See electrical faults
in electrical equipment, motors and power reticulation.

During a Thermax-IR Electrical Inspection, your electrical equipment is surveyed. Connection faults and component defects will be identified. The inspection contributes to a reduction in risk of electrical explosion, fires, and unscheduled plant shutdowns.

Infrared surveys require capability. For Thermax this means combining technical knowledge, skills and experience.
Thermax-IR uses professional thermal imaging cameras and software for analyses and reporting. This enables the root cause of faults to be identified.

Thermax uses proven inspection procedures and standards to evaluate and report on your equipment condition.

Testimonials:

Thermax really helps us to identify problems in our extruding machines

Dieter

Ian’s experience was made clear to me when he showed me that my previous supplier had been reporting phantom faults

Graeme

This service prevented a catastrophe!

Sipho

After 15 continuous years, we wouldn’t skip our annual Thermax Infrared inspection

See electrical faults and defects

Electrical faults, sometimes called ‘hot spots’ are associated with the construction and maintenance of electrical installations. In electrical systems, poor connections cause energy to dissipate as heat.

Detect loose, oxidized or corroded connections

(e.g damaged contacts).

Other causes of faults that are identified are

Other causes of faults that are identified are:

  • under design
  • poor construction
  • poor maintenance
  • destructive environmental conditions.

You may also need

Use an ultrasound inspection of your HT electrical equipment to detect corona discharge. Ultramax identifies faults that thermography cannot identify. Faults on HT cause explosions.

Electrical signature analysis of motor currents and voltages is another technology used to determine the health of your electrical motors.
