Electrical system failures, whether they involve a single branch circuit or a major switchgear component, can be very costly. Titan Power’s Infrared Thermography Testing can identify the problems caused by poor electrical connections and defective equipment before they progress to catastrophic failure.
What Can Infrared Thermography Do For You?
Infrared Thermography has emerged as a powerful, versatile and accurate diagnostic tool used to uncover excessive heat loss in systems or materials. It is a non-contact; non-destructive means of testing that identifies and documents abnormally warm or cool connectors, conductors, or components that may be a potential problem in electrical systems. Many dangerous conditions cannot be seen by the human eye, infrared thermography testing can find potential electrical system trouble spots before they become disastrous. Analysis of the collected data will help you detect problems before they become serious and costly issues.
How Does It Work?
Titan Power utilizes an infrared imaging system with powerful software designed to provide a fast and effective means of identifying potential problems in electrical and mechanical equipment, refractory and insulation materials. This information is compiled into a comprehensive report using easily interpreted text with the infrared image and a visible light reference. From the test report, preventive or corrective repairs can then be scheduled on a priority basis.
Equipment that can be inspected with Infrared Thermography include:
- Category III Transformers
- Relay Panels
- Fuse Disconnects
- Circuit Breakers
- Electrical Switchgear
- Fans for Bearing Degradation
- AC & DC Capacitor Banks
- Harmonic Filters for Capacitor Degradation
- Batteries to Detect Thermal Runaway
Infrared Testing of your electrical systems not only provides peace of mind, but also allows the flexibility to be proactive rather than reactive in your risk management practices. Contact us to learn more about Titan Power’s Infrared Thermography Testing Service.
