The Thermographic survey of Electrical distribution systems & components is currently the most established survey undertaken. These surveys are non-invasive, relatively quick to carry out, cost effective and can form part of any predictive maintenance strategy.

Electrical components such as connections, joints and contacts are subject to deterioration over time due to corrosion, loosening, over tightening, contamination and overloading, all of which causes an increase in electrical resistance and subsequently an increase in temperature. If left, further deterioration occurs, resulting in possible equipment failure, fire and even explosions.

Carrying out regular Thermographic surveys results in your Electrical distribution systems and components being evaluated and any maintenance intervention can be scheduled as part of a predictable maintenance strategy.

We therefore recommend regular thermographic surveys of the following types of equipment:

  • Fuse boards
  • Distribution boards
  • Equipment control panels
  • PLC systems
  • Motor control centres
  • High & Low main voltage systems
  • Electrical switchgear
  • Bus-bar systems
  • Transformers
  • UPS and battery systems

The survey is carried out by a Level II thermographer and a report is produced giving comprehensive details of all the items surveyed, highlighting faults and advising on the most effective solution.

A survey report will also demonstrate that as a business you are taking positive action to ensure that your electrical infrastructure is of a reasonable condition and that regular maintenance is being undertaken.

This also demonstrates that you are taking reasonable steps in relation to fire prevention in the electrical systems as it is becoming more and more relevant as insurance companies require or recommend Thermographic surveys as part of their Fire risk assessment of your business.
