Over time, many variables can cause your business’s electrical and mechanical equipment to deteriorate. Issues like overloaded circuits, vibration, equipment fatigue and age can cause connections to fail and potentially lead to faults, mechanical failures and even fires. Electrical and mechanical system failures can have a disastrous effect on your business’s productivity. Leer Electric has consistently kept pace with the fast-changing world of electrical components. We can utilize state-of-the-art thermography equipment to determine whether the temperatures of your building’s electrical components are healthy, deteriorating or at dangerous levels.
What Is Thermography?
Thermography is an excellent preventative maintenance tool. Your business’s electrical systems are made up of complex electrical components. As these components age, their performance may deteriorate, which may display elevated temperatures we can detect through thermography. Also known as thermal imaging, thermography uses thermal infrared camera equipment to detect infrared energy that’s invisible to the human eye. Once detected, it converts this energy into a measurable temperature reading. These readings are compared against similar equipment to determine whether your systems are operating within normal ranges.
This no-contact scan can be performed on both electrical and mechanical systems and doesn’t require you to shut down your equipment. When excessive heat is detected in a piece of equipment, it’s a strong indicator that equipment failure is potentially imminent. Early detection can identify minor problems before they become more serious and help your company save money from inefficient use of electricity. Thermography testing is recommended every one to three years, depending on your type of operation.
