What is an Infrared Inspection?
An infrared inspection measures surface temperatures to scope out problems that cannot be detected by the human eye alone. Infrared inspections can find issues such as loose connections, faulty breakers, issues in disconnects, motor windings and bearings with abnormal heating, and much more. This is done by using specialized infrared video and cameras. These specialized cameras are able to see the light that is in the heat spectrum, ranging from white for warm regions to black for cooler areas. This type of imaging can also determine where insulation is needed or where it has been installed incorrectly. Infrared scans are an essential service to make sure certain equipment is functioning correctly and can prevent potentially dangerous and expensive issues from developing.
The advantages of performing thermal infrared inspections on a regular basis are endless. Key features of this process are that it is non-intrusive, it keeps people doing the work out of danger, and it is real-time information that can be monitored and trended to help predict and prevent failure.
