Infrared Electrical Inspections Prevent Catastrophic Failure

infrared electrical inspections prevent catastrophic failure

IR inspections detect the heat generated by the electrical resistance that occurs from troubles such as loose connections, overloaded or imbalanced circuits, damaged switches, or faulty breakers and fuses. This excess heat breaks down the insulation on wiring and cables leading to dangerous situations.

Your final report details the results of your tested equipment and highlights areas of concern. Don’t wait until your components fail before discovering a problem. Schedule an inspection with our infrared certified technicians and correct problems now.

Smooth Operations From Diligence, Not Luck

Failing components jeopardize the safety of your crew and equipment. Skipping your annual electrical IR inspection could cause you to experience production downtime, damaged equipment, employee injuries, or worse.

Because increased heating is a sign of failure, infrared is the best diagnostic tool for finding these hot connections in the early stages of degeneration. For this reason, your insurance company may have asked for an electrical infrared inspection to find and prevent problems before they cause damage to your personnel, equipment, and facility. The best part is infrared inspections require no downtime.

Don’t Get Caught By Surprise

Preventive maintenance schedules that include IR inspections help keep you in control of the repair timetable. Fix and replace worn and damaged components when it makes sense for your production schedule and without the added stress of emergency service.

Infrared Electrical Inspections

Detect hot spots caused by faulty components.

When an electrical component starts to fail, it heats up. Infrared thermology is a technology used to locate excess heat generated by faulty parts, loose connections, overloaded circuits, and more. That way, solutions can be found and repairs made before a catastrophic failure occurs.

But, my machines are all running perfectly…

The right time to discover problems is while your equipment is still operating. That way, you are in control of when the shutdown happens. A sudden halt to production isn’t good for the machinery, your crews, your customers, or your bottom line.

When electrical components begin to fail, they heat up. Once this happens, failure is only a matter of time. Don’t get caught by surprise. Instead, enjoy the luxury of time to create the ideal solution for your unique situation.

Best of all, infrared inspections are completed by a certified technician and require no downtime.

Preventive Maintenance is Smart Business.

There’s good reason for insurance providers to require infrared electrical inspections: they help catch problems now while they are small so you can avoid big, expensive problems down the road.

If your insurance company requires inspections, we’ll make sure you stay in compliance and stay covered. If they do not, you’ll receive the same detailed assessment and expert recommendations to keep your equipment running better and for longer.
