THERMAL IMAGING

In electrical engineering, thermal imaging is one of the most valuable diagnostic tools for predictive maintenance, which detect anomalies often invisible to the naked eye, thereby allowing corrective action to be taken before costly system failures happen. Thermal imaging is the process of using special cameras designed to look only for heat by the way of infrared energy waves. A regular agenda of thermal imaging as a part of regular maintenance can highlight potential problems in installations long before any harmful event occurs. As an outcome, any repairs needed could be planned for in terms of both time and budget. Thermal imaging has found its principal use in power engineering in diagnostics of electrical apparatus and equipment, mainly transformers insulators & switchgears. Modern infrared mapping technologies enable to take fast and non-exhausting measurements of devices that are not easily accessible or where measurements are dangerous to humans.

 

Predictive maintenance is the most important technique in identifying machines that may be running in an alarm status that could lead to the failure of a unit. Thermal imaging is the technique which uses thermal imaging cameras to visually represent the infrared energy emitted from a surface. Elensol offers a comprehensive range of site services in thermal imaging, either for individual use, or for custom designed and built systems, where a thermal imaging analysis is carried out on plant and equipment on site. Our thermal imaging site services are unobtrusive methods of inspection that may prevent future breakdown situations occurring. Our thermal imaging site services are extremely cost-effective forms of inspection. Even if only one fault is found and rectified as a result of our visit, the expenses can be paid back many times in savings from preventing a potential breakdown of your unit.

 

Elensol thermal imaging site services involve heat sensitive cameras to measure the surface temperature of the components and compare it against the surrounding areas. This method of inspection can be used to spot both mechanical and electrical faults caused by an increase in heat due to friction or increased resistance, and can be used on a wide range of applications, including switchgears and motors. We provide full support in the rectification of any problems that our thermal imaging services team raises, using the wide range of support services available both on site and within our workshops in order to solve any problem and enable the smooth running of your plant.
