Infrared Survey

Not just limited to electrical equipment A non-evasive testing routine is one of the only alternatives to help insure that system reliability is maintained in these days of continuous operation. An Infrared survey can be performed on electrical, mechanical and structural systems as a means to performing a no-evasive test.  Electrical systems, we look for hot spots indicating loose or corroded connections and overloaded feeders and components. Mechanical systems, the survey can reveal bearings and pumps that are approaching failure. Equipment Cooling, Infrared scans can also show systems that are not getting proper cooling and are overheating, which can lead to premature failure of system components. This can be from blocked cooling fins, to valves that have failed and the cooling water can not reach the equipment to perform the cooling action. Water Damage, an Infrared inspection can show where water is present in insulation and water soaked material in walls and floors. Annual & Semi Annual Infrared Survey Programs Available Because equipment loading can change throughout the year, facilities that have Infrared inspections performed twice a year, can get a better understanding of how their equipment is performing. No matter if you are performing two inspections a year or only one, the thermographic survey needs to be performed at least once a year when the equipment is under the heaviest loading. This will show if the equipment is in immediate need of repair. By working with site personnel, PSS will performs an Infrared inspection on their critical systems while the systems are operating on-line, without the need to shutdown these critical systems. We can show the site personnel exactly where the problem is, giving real time data. This allows site personnel to make an informed decision on how to best correct any problems noted during the  Infrared inspection. After the survey has been completed, PSS will provide a detailed report on any problems found with recommended actions for correction of problems. An Infrared survey does not replace performing preventive maintenance on equipment. But when that maintenance can not be performed due restrictions on access to equipment, then an Infrared survey is imperative to system reliability. By performing a Thermogaphic inspection, you will have the peace of mind knowing that there are no problems. Turn to PSS for your Non-invasive equipment testing by having us perform an Infrared inspection. Contact us to discuss how an Infrared survey can be best implemented at your facility.

Infrared/Thermographic 

Inspections

It’s a fact of life, there are times when critical systems cannot be taken off line to have routine maintenance performed on them. An Infrared survey is the only way to get an idea of the status of the system. By implementing an Infrared program, customers are able to potentially save thousand of dollars of lost operational costs by being proactive and preventing a catastrophic failure.
