Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging is one of the most valuable diagnostic tools for predictive maintenance. SEC understands, that critical installations, such as data centres along with critical equipment (UPS’s, Switchgear etc.) can not just be isolated or shutdown to enable maintenance and inspection. 

Thermography allows corrective action to be taken before costly system failures occur by detecting anomalies often invisible to the naked eye, carried out whilst the installation is live and operational, minimising business interruption.

Potential problems can often be found with overheating, overloading or component failure. 

If undetected, these problems can lead to failure and can result in expensive production loss or downtime and, in the most extreme case, can lead to fire. 

A regular programme of thermal imaging as part of routine maintenance can highlight potential problems long before any event. As a result, any required repairs can be planned for in terms of both time and budget. In short, it is an invaluable resource for predictive maintenance. 

Thermal Imaging can detect:

  • Loose connections
  • Overloads
  • Phase imbalances
  • Corrosion
  • High resistance in fuses and switchgear

SEC can work with you, the customer, to put together a programme of inspections as part of your routine maintenance.
