Identifying and rectifying equipment issues before they become problems is a critical part of averting loss and maintaining uninterrupted service. Routine inspections and preventive maintenance can reduce failures, but they cannot reliably identify trouble spots. Prescon Engineering is providing the thermography services to all critical industries of Pakistan.
As we know all electrical and mechanical equipment radiates heat. Infrared video cameras that are sensitive to this thermal radiation, detect and measure the temperature differences between surfaces. The cameras then convert the information and display it as an image visible to the human eye, allowing us to “see” a heat signature.Abnormal or unexpected thermal patterns typically indicate a problem with the equipment, including conditions such as:
- Loose electrical connections
- Overloaded circuits or phases
- Deteriorated or damaged insulation
- Bearing failure
- Insufficient lubrication
- Steam leaks
These and other issues show up as hot spots that a trained professional can interpret to determine the likely cause and potential remedy.
