Infrared Thermography

The purpose of the Infrared Thermography test is to identify, isolate and document 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 and this test can find electrical system touble spots before they become disastrous.

Problems that arise can be caused by: Specialized Testing Infrared Thermography

  • Loose or deteriorated connections
  • Short circuits
  • Overloads
  • Load imbalances
  • Faulty, mismatched or improperly installed components

Some of the electrical equipment Titan Power’s Certified Thermographer inspects: Thermal Images Examples

  • Category III transformers
  • Relay panels
  • Fuse disconnects
  • Circuit breakers
  • Electrical switchgear
  • Fans for bearing degradation

Important UPS components such as:

  • AC capacitor banks
  • DC capacitor banks
  • Harmonic filters for capacitor degradation
  • Batteries to detect thermal runnaway

Three ways to start your Infrared Thermography Preventative Maintenance:

  • Add Infrared Thermography testing to your existing Maintenance Agreement with Titan Power.
  • Start a separate Maintenance Agreement for Infrared Thermography testing.
  • Have Infrared testing completed as a One-time service or on an As-needed basis.

IR Report

Titan Power utilizes this infrared imaging system along with powerful software designed to provide a fast and effective means of identifying potential power 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 report, preventative or corrective repairs can then be scheduled on a priority basis.

Infrared Thermography FAQ

Q: Can infrared Thermography be used to find overloaded circuits within a data center?

A: Yes, Infrared Thermography is one of the best preventative maintenance tools for identifying and correcting overloaded circuits or bad connections before they cause an outage. We recommend Infrared Thermography be formed on a semi-annual basis. This can be added into the contract,

More Testing Services

Data Center Arc Flash Prevention and Safety
The technical team at Titan Power, together with Emerson Network Power, can deliver customized and comprehensive solutions for arc flash safety and compliance. As a leader in electrical testing, maintenance and engineering services, Titan Power is equipped to provide single-point solutions for every area affecting arc flash hazards.
Facility Roll-Over Testing
The purpose of the test is to confirm that all facility critical emergency back-up systems perform correctly during a real-world power outage. Critical buss loads should not lose power at any point and all non-critical facility loads should re-establish within 7-10 seconds after loss of utility power. An integral part of the test is to ensure that all equipment performs a successful roll-back after re-establishing utility power.
UPS Acceptance Testing
The purpose of the test is to verify that the UPS system is performing to manufacturer’s design specifications. The test is normally performed within 72 hours after equipment installation and successful start-up. However, this test may be conducted at any point in the UPS design life to establish a benchmark (snapshot) of performance.
Load Bank Testing
Resistive load banks are the most commonly used load banks for testing generator sets and power systems. They can provide full KW loading to the power source to completely evaluate the engine cooling, exhaust and fuel systems. They will not load the generator to its full nameplate KVA capacity at 0.8 Power Factor. In order to load the generator to its full KVA rating, reactive load banks will be required.
