Infrared Preventative Maintenance/Thermography

Thermography is a method of inspecting electrical and mechanical equipment by obtaining heat distribution pictures. This inspection method is based on the fact that most components in a system show an increase in temperature when malfunctioning and faults steadily get worse before failure. The increase in temperature in an electrical circuit could be due to loose connections, damaged insulation, overloading, etc. By observing the heat patterns in operational system components, faults can be located and their severity evaluated before any serious problems arise.

Imbalanced Phases

Techtric Engineering uses Infrared Thermography to perform preventative maintenance checks on electrical equipment by using a heat signature to identify faults including:

  • Deterioration & Degradation

  • Loose Connections

  • Overloaded or Imbalanced Circuits

  • Faulty Breakers

  • Damaged Switches

  • Faulty Fuses


Types of Electrical Distribution Equipment that should be checked regularly include:

  • Utility Substations, Transformers & Feed Poles

  • Main Incoming Services & Capacitor Banks

  • Main Switchboards & Disconnects

  • Main Distribution Panels & Disconnects

  • Uninterruptible Power Supplies

  • Generator Controls & Transfer Switches

  • Lighting & Power Panels

  • Machine Control Panels

  • Isolating Switches for Motors
