Thermographic surveys of electrical control panels provide a proactive method of detecting electrical problems, such as loose electrical connections and aims to minimise breakdowns and eliminate the main cause of electrical fires.
Thermographic surveys on mechanical systems can identify problems such as blocked heat exchangers and pipes, overheating gearboxes, motors and process temperature deviations.
Potential machine failure often leads to abnormal vibrations which can be detected during a vibration monitoring survey. The early detection of these potential failures allow maintenance personnel to undertake remedial work to suit the production schedules, reducing disruption and cost.
Typical problems identified by vibration monitoring surveys can be deteriorating bearings and gears, misalignment, unbalance and looseness of machinery parts.
