Electrical Equipment

Electrical equipment failure can result in costly downtime, loss of revenue or data and is one of the most frequent causes of fire.Electrical faults can occur even in correctly designed and protected electrical installations due to such causes as component failure, resistive heating of loose or corroded connections, inline arcing, thinning of conductors on tight radius bends etc.

Thermography is one tool that can assist in the preventative diagnosis of faults before they result in equipment failure.

Periodic routine inspections can identify hotspots and allow the fault to be rectified.

Electrical equipment can often be surveyed without the need for denergising systems or approaching high voltage conductors.

Surveying Insulation
  • Thermographic surveys can be used to identify defective insulation on ductwork, pipework and plant such as vessels, boilers and heaters..
  • Thermographic surveys can be used to detect heat losses, defective areas of lagging, hot or cold gas and liquid leaks, and defects in the insulation of cooling systems
  • Thermography is one tool that can assist in the preventative diagnosis of faults before they result in equipment failure.
  • Thermograhy can assist in identfying defects or confirming insulation integrity without the need to erect scaffolding or remove cladding.

Building Surveys Energy efficiency / Heat conservation

Thermographic surveying is a useful tool to identify where heat is being lost from a building for energy conservation. Surveys can be conducted both outside and inside the building. Heat loss can occur through every part of the building from leaky roofs, badly insulated windows to the tickest granite walls. A thermographical report will pinpoint the weak spots.

  • Thermographic surveys can be used to detect the position of structural components such as joists or defective wall insulation, thermal bridging of external walls or roofs in industrial buildings.
  • Thermography can be used to detct damp or moisure ingress.
  • Thermograhy can assist in identfying defects in underfloor heating systems.

Radiator Sludge

Most central heating systems develop sludge over time, reducing heating efficiency and increasing heating cost. Find out how ThermoCheck can help you reduce YOUR heating cost, and increase your radiators' and boilers' longevity.
