Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging uses infrared technologies to produce temperature calibrated infrared or heat pictures. Measuring levels of heat emitted from an entity, thermal imaging can identify increased or reduced heat emissions and / or so called “hot spots” or “hot joints”.

Thermal imaging’s ability to detect temperature differences helps in electrical safety testing – heat differences can signal an electrical fault within a device or appliance that is often invisible to the eye.

Typically used to test electrical / mechanical services, switchboards and equipment, thermal imaging is especially useful as switchboard faults often breakdown slowly, providing the owner with a period of time in which to identify the fault before any serious issues occur. For this reason, the Thermal Imaging service is considered a form of Preventative Maintenance.

Benefits of Thermal Imaging

A Thermal Imaging testing service will:

  • Ensure electrical safety and protect users and assets
  • Prevent fire danger and explosion from faulty devices
  • Check the integrity and reliability of the device
  • Prevent costly breakdowns and loss of income before it happens
  • Provide cost savings by paying just for the test rather than equipment and lost earnings
  • Picking up faults that a regular maintenance routine can’t pick up
  • Identify exactly where the fault is
  • Be used as part of a regular maintenance program
