Thermal Scanning of HVAC Plant and Equipment
Most importantly, thermal imaging of HVAC systems provides a non-invasive way to check for non-visible electrical faults and get real-time results. It also avoids downtime that is often accompanied with other forms of inspection, and it even allows our technicians to undertake immediate repairs, offering our clients uninterrupted testing and maintenance simultaneously.
Why is Thermal Scanning so important? Left unrepaired electrical problems ultimately result in infrastructure failures. Most importantly, electrical mechanical HVAC systems are complex, and in most cases electrical problems are not easily detectable, ultimately leading to equipment failure with devastating results for the systems they control. For instance, motors controlling a data centre’s cooling system may fail due to a ‘Hot Joint’ (a stressed electrical connection which overheats and may melt), such failure can result in major setbacks and financial loss. Micron Group uses up to date calibrated thermal scanning cameras from renowned manufacturers such as Fluke or Flir coupled with sophisticated software to ensure your equipment is scanned and analyzed without compromise.
Electrical ThermographyAbove all, Micron Group’s electrical thermography offers the ability to inspect mechanical and electrical equipment such as HVAC mechanical switchboards, electrical connections, motors, variable speed drives, sensors, and automation equipment without powering them off. In fact, Micron Groups’ professional thermal scanning techniques means no downtime and equipment errors can be detected immediately.
