THERMAL IMAGING & PARTIAL DISCHARGE TESTING
Thermal Imaging is a low cost, effective method of protecting your business assets and giving you peace of mind. It is an essential part of a successful Preventative and Predictive Maintenance plan allowing you to detect electrical faults before the component fails. A thermal imaging camera is used to detect hot-spots where potential problems could arise. This service can highlight potential problems before they arise.
Partial Discharge Testing (HV systems) can detect damage or degradation within an insulated HV system, which can result in major equipment failure. This can be routinely carried out to assess the condition of motors, generators, HV transformers and other types of switchgear. Diagnostic partial discharge measurements are recommended if testing highlights marked potential faults, such as gas-in-oil values or after a failed PD measurement during acceptance tests.
Because these services are virtually non-intrusive, they are extremely fast and efficient at fault-finding.
Benefits – Thermal Imaging
Benefits – Partial Discharge Testing
Immediate and accurate electrical fault finding.
A planned approach to equipment maintenance.
Provides a timely response to issues before they become critical.
Reduced downtime of equipment.
Reduced repairs costs.
Reduced risk of electrical fire.
Reduced insurance costs.
Establishes the condition of the equipment in real time.
Helps prevent catastrophic failure.
Extends the life of HV electrical equipment.
More than one piece of HV equipment can be monitored during the same visit, resulting in a reduction in overall maintenance costs.
A user-friendly inspection report is generated, which details the condition of the HV equipment being inspected.
Reduces supply outage.
Detects transient earth voltages.
Carrying out periodic PDT can reduce overall maintenance costs.
