How to be wise before the event.
Thermographic inspections are a regular part of our predictive maintenance programme and enable us to pinpoint potential problems before they occur. Our inspections highlight any impending faults in mechanical and electrical systems and components through detecting and quantifying increased temperatures that are due to increased resistance and friction.
Our state-of-the-art thermal infra-red cameras operate in a similar way to a standard video camera giving us an image of the temperature distribution of any component. Should any part of the component be significantly warmer than other similar parts, a recording of the suspect component is taken. The magnitude of temperature rise will be illustrated helping us to determine the seriousness of the potential fault.
Protection & Grading Studies:
Safeguard your people, productivity and profitability.
Switch or relay malfunction, under fault conditions, can have expensive, time consuming and disruptive consequences for your enterprise. These can range from damage to equipment and probable plant shut down to possible cascade tripping and risks for personnel with the inevitable involvement of the Heath & Safety Executive.
Regular testing of protective devices is therefore crucial to the integrity of any power system and the smooth running of your operations.
Our protection grading services ensures discrimination throughout a system which prevents damage and loss of supply should a fault occur during normal operation
