Thermography Inspection for Electrical System
Fluke Thermal Imaging Inspection for Electrical System
Abnormal heating associated with high resistance or excessive current flow is the main cause of many problems in electrical systems. Infrared thermography allows us to see these invisible thermal signatures of impending damage before the damage occurs. When current flows through an electric circuit, part of the electrical energy is converted into heat energy. This is normal. But, if there is an abnormally high resistance in the circuit or abnormally high current flow, abnormally high heat is generated which is wasteful, potentially damaging and not normal.
Thermal imagers enable us to see the heat signatures associated with high electrical resistance long before the circuit becomes hot enough to cause an outage or explosion.
Be aware of two basic thermal patterns associated with electrical failure:
1) a high resistance caused by poor surface contact
2) an over loaded circuit or multi-phase imbalance problem.
We provide thermography Inspection services for predictive and preventive analysis in all types of industries.
