Infrared Electrical inspections are an ideal method for inspecting electrical service equipment for defective components, poor connections, and overloaded circuits. The most effective way to maintain an electrical system is to detect any potential electrical failures and take the corrective action that will prevent any interruption of the normal system operation. You can’t afford to have your plant out of operation because of an electrical system breakdown. Infrared scanning is the perfect tool for your Electrical Predictive Maintenance program. An Infrared Electrical Inspection is a cost effective means to help keep your business in operation.
Through normal use electrical equipment can become contaminated and corroded. Faulty assembly or poor installation may also lead to poor conductivity and raise the resistance level of electrical the components.
Every 12 months at a minimum, an infrared scan should be scheduled to pinpoint potential problems in primary and secondary electrical systems before a failure occurs. It is suggested that control systems and equipment subject to movement and vibration be scanned every 6 months. This economical service aids Predictive Maintenance programs that not only promotes uninterrupted system operation, but also extends the useful service life of equipment.
Electrical infrared inspections are one of the most common practices for infrared in industrial and commercial facilities. Simply put, we help reduce downtime and or catastrophic failure. AFA Ghana provides professional infrared electrical inspection services covering a wide variety of electrical systems for our clients.
Today’s electrical systems are complex and high performance. Excessive heat relative to the entire system can be a sign of potential problems. These higher temperatures often indicate loose or faulty connections, improper wiring, ground faults, short circuits and other common problems in the electrical equipment.
It is often difficult to determine if there is a ticking time bomb within your electrical system simply from a visual inspection. With the help of AFA Ghana and our leading edge equipment and expertise, you can pinpoint and repair electrical problems before the equipment fails. This will ultimately reduce or eliminate your operational downtime and keep your company on a profitable path.
Baseline Infrared Imaging
Although scheduling electrical infrared surveys can determine if there are existing issues with any electrical or mechanical equipment in your building, we suggest a baseline scan for all new equipment as well.
A baseline scan provides baseline data for comparision for subsequent infrared scans. It makes it easier and quicker to troubleshoot potential issues and helps spot problems before they become catastrophic. With baseline scan records, trend analysis of motors and bearings can provide an early warning of impending problems. Your company invests a substantial amount of money into equipment.
To get the best return on that investment, it makes sense to keep that equipment at its peak efficiency – and to have the peace of mind to know it is operating that way from the point of installation. Doesn’t it make sense to have a baseline scan done of any new equipment?
