Infrared windows & Thermography – best practices to ensure operational efficiency

December 15, 2015 12:05 pm

When equipment is operating on a 24/7 basis breakdowns become inevitable, requiring a fast reactive response to get the system back online. By adapting a facilities electrical system to incorporate 11kVA IP65 rated viewing portals, breakdowns inside vital electrical switchgear can become a thing of the past. Installation facilitates regular PM inspections into the equipment, preventing the need to open doors and covers to reveal vital equipment, while safeguarding against arc-flash.

Best working practices are further reinforced, protected by the enclousre inspections become quicker and safer monitoring temperatures using either a infrared spot thermometer or thermal imager, with minimal loss in radiometric temperature and image resolution. With safe, regular checking a component effected by heat will become immediately apparent, with the eye focusing toward those extreme surface temperatures deviating from a comparative baseline. Extreme heat is the early precursor to component failure and the first sign to implement pro-active measures or maintenance needs to prevent a breakdown.

By combining infrared window installations & thermographic surveys will enhance safety and operational efficiency, moreover increase profitability in the facility, with the ROI likely to be achieved with the first prevention.
