Why Perform Inspections

Infrared inspections find hot spots on electrical equipments. Infrared thermography is used to find areas of excess heat (caused by increased resistance) so that problems can be corrected before a component fails.

In electrical systems, increased resistance can be caused by component age, fatigue oxidation, wear, loose connections or even poor installations of new equipment.

Conditions Detectable by
Infrared Thermography

  • Loose and/or deteriorated connections
  • Overloaded circuits
  • Open circuits
  • Unbalanced loads
  • Inductive heating
  • Harmonics
  • Defective equipment and/or poor installations

Benefits of
Infrared Thermography

  • Reduces fire/safety risks
  • Reduces unscheduled downtimes
  • Increases equipment life
  • Lowers repair costs
  • Saves money
  • Prevents catastrophic failures
  • Lowers insurance premiums due to reduced losses

Results of Thermal Scans

Thermal scanning of electrical components and systems should be part of any predictive maintenance program and performed on a routine basis per the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (Operations Manual for Owners and Managers of Multi-Unit Residential Buildings).

The use of infrared thermography to detect the early indications of failure is prudent and cost-effective. With thermographic scanning, preemptive action can be taken to minimize equipment breakdowns and fire/safety hazards.

A report is produced identifying problem areas in the building and the recommended solution to fix the issues.
