We’re building more than innovative technologies; we’re striving to build a more sustainable, more efficient, safer future.
The delivery of reliable electrical power and other utility services is essential in our demanding technological world. Manufacturers operating 24/7 depend on it to remain profitable as do commercial enterprises at all levels. It’s critical in everyday life, at home, on the road, in business and for public safety. That’s why the most successful utility companies take every precaution to prevent sudden outages, and why thermal imaging has become a core predictive maintenance tool in their ongoing inspection programs. They depend on thermal imaging for intensive regular substation surveys as well as quick safety checks of energized equipment before beginning maintenance work – anything that will help them avoid costly service interruptions and exorbitant equipment losses.
Predictive maintenance and RCM programs at manufacturing facilities regularly use thermal imaging cameras for inspecting a countless number of mechanical and electrical components.
An infrared image that integrates accurate temperature data provides maintenance experts with crucial information about the condition of all kinds of equipment. As a non-contact measurement tool that also makes invisible heat issues visible, thermal cameras let technicians inspect production equipment more safely even at peak operation. Along with troubleshooting, thermal imagers can also help optimize the production process itself as well as monitor quality control.
Many commercial enterprises choose to contract with independent service companies to perform periodic thermal inspections of electrical/mechanical equipment rather than develop an internal thermography program. This creates additional opportunities for technicians who include thermal imaging as part of their diagnostic services.
Electrical contractors know the value of having the right tool available for the job. And FLIR offers the best range of solutions to help you improve the efficiency, accuracy, and safety of your work.
