Infrared (IR) surveys are performed with equipment on-line allowing accurate inspection as well as no disruption to productivity. Inspections can be scheduled for all critical services. Infrared can also be used as a diagnostic tool for building and mechanical systems and often satisfies insurance carriers requirements for predictive maintenance inspections.





Thermography Sample Projects

THERMOGRAPHIC INSPECTION PEANUT PLANT
Infrared inspection was performed in lieu of shutting down electrical service to the plant to perform switchgear preventive maintenance to satisfy the plant’s insurance carrier’s requirements. The inspection identified any discrepancies that would have been found during switchgear preventive maintenance but allowed for plant operation during the equipment inspection. Repairs could then be scheduled during regularly scheduled shut down and any critical repairs performed by only shutting down service to that particular piece of equipment. Included in the inspection was the switchgear, panel boards, sub panels, all disconnects associated with any production equipment and the electric utility transformer.

BUILDING SHELL INFRARED INSPECTION
The corporate office of a construction firm wanted to perform a payback analysis for proposed building shell upgrades. To determine energy costs associated with heat losses and gains from the building shell an infrared scan was first performed on exterior windows, doors and stud areas. These losses and gains were calculated in energy consumption and converted to the dollars for that energy. A payback could then be determined for the upgrades by comparing the cost of the upgrades to the savings in energy consumption.

THERMOGRAPHIC INSPECTION SEAFOOD PLANT
Infrared scan on all plant panels, switchgear and load centers at a seafood processing facility. Thermography allowed for the inspection to occur during production because electrical service wasn’t interrupted. Just like switchgear preventive maintenance the inspection identified any discrepancies and repairs could be scheduled.
