Electrical fires represent 40% of fire loss insurance costs in industry and 20% of large scale fire incidents. Accidents are commonly caused by loose connections, weakening of isolations, obstructed cooling and mechanical damage. Thermal Imaging can pinpoint overheating and provides a way of detecting overcurrent faults and poor connections.
The requirement to adequately and routinely assess electrical performance and compliance is never more present than in the working environment. The unseen hazards associated with electrical failure, fault or degradation can present risks to health and the environment leading to loss of efficiency, accident, injury or fire.
Thermal Imaging is a non-invasive in-depth survey serving to thoroughly assess and identify unseen areas of possible risk, danger or inadequacy in your electrical system.
Thermal Imaging works by comparing the temperature rise of the fault with the correctly operating component, under the same loading conditions the severity of the problem can be determined.
