At AV2 Group we conduct infrared thermal imaging of machinery and electrical panels, helping the end user to detect faults before they become major issues. Our thermal imaging equipment produces accurate real time high resolution images; enabling engineers to detect problems that might otherwise go unnoticed. This also gives them the opportunity to undertake remedial maintenance prior to costly system failures or production stoppages. Using infrared thermography is effective across all sectors in helping to reduce maintenance costs and even identify possible improvements.
Thermography is an excellent diagnostic maintenance tool that improves both efficiency and reliability of plant systems. Such surveys are conducted while the equipment is working under normal operational conditions, any problems will be quickly located allowing time to schedule maintenance immediately or when convenient for the production.
Statistics reveal that electrical equipment damage and lost connections cause 25% -30% of all failures to switchboards, switches, circuit breakers and cables. This type of fault is easy to detect using Infrared cameras. AV2 Group team will trace, quantify and trend the fault, allowing the management of the site to plan repairs during scheduled stoppages instead of panic reaction during sudden failures, let alone the possible risk of fire which can be catastrophic for the personnel and business. Our thermography survey helps reduce down time which will cost business in lost production time.
We recommend regular thermography surveys of the following types of equipment:
- Fuse boards
- Distribution boards
- Busbar systems
- Control panels
- High voltage and medium voltage systems
- Power line connections and insulators
- Electronic components
- UPS and battery systems
- PLC connections
- Motor control centers
- DG Set
