Industrial Thermal Inspections

In manufacturing and other big mechanical operations, thermal imaging is often used as a preventative maintenance tool. These cameras can detect overheated and overloaded components before they actually break down and cause facility downtime. They are also useful for monitoring high-temperature industrial heaters, boilers, and furnaces.

Components that infrared inspections can monitor include conveyor belts, motors, pipelines, pumps, process valves, and storage tanks. Here are some of the component problems that can be detected using infrared imaging before they become larger issues.

  • Check sludge levels in storage tanks
  • Overheated bearings in conveyor belts
  • Overheating bearings and/or windings and misalignment in motors
  • Anomalies in pipelines, such as build-up of scale, etc.
  • Leakage in process valves
  • Overheated connections, fuse problems, and overloaded electrical cables in pumps

Smarter Preventative Maintenance

Infrared inspections are also useful in preventative maintenance of electrical equipment, as well. Here are some electrical equipment that can be checked by infrared (thermal) imaging:

  • Primary power sources, such as an outdoor high voltage switchyard
  • Low voltage electrical installations such as breaker panels, faulty electrical outlets and/or wall sockets
  • Electrical cabinets
  • Fuse panels
  • Motor control centers (MCC)
  • Switchgear
  • Transformers

No matter how large your manufacturing facility might be, you can use infrared inspections as a preventative maintenance tool to prevent small components from causing large issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

The price of a thermographic inspection varies depending on location, access, time and volume of images taken. A thermographer can comfortably survey 50 pieces of equipment in a day, providing access is arranged. Generally, a one hour on-site inspection is $150.00 (plus taxes). If a report is required then the price will be adjusted accordingly on a per hour basis. As a guide, 1.0 hour in the field requires approximately 2.0 hours for post-image processing, thermal tuning, image interpretation, analysis, and report generation.

Another way you could look at this question is, "Is it worth taking the risk by not having a thermal imaging inspection"?

Thermal imaging is a powerful, non-contact inspection method capable of identifying serious electrical or mechanical faults that could otherwise lead to large financial losses if left undetected. By using our nationwide thermal imaging services, you may even be eligible for reduced insurance premiums from your insurance company. Risk mitigation should be a focal point for any company as it creates a safer workplace for you and your employees/tenants. The ROI for is huge from a safety and financial perspective.
