A very impressive technology, thermography is a type of infrared imaging science. Thermographic cameras detect radiation in the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum and produce images of that radiation, called thermograms. Since infrared radiation is emitted by all objects based on their temperatures, according to the black body radiation law, thermography makes it possible to "see" one's environment with or without visible illumination. The amount of radiation emitted by an object increases with temperature, therefore thermography allows one to see variations in temperature. When viewed by thermographic camera, warm objects stand out well against cooler backgrounds; humans and other heat sources become easily visible against the environment, day or night. As a result, thermography's extensive use can historically be ascribed to the military and security services. This technology is now being extensively used in industry for many different applications and maintenance.
IR analysis and reporting software This powerful software allows us to create reports (if required) on the component(s) imaged which allows advanced analysis by the customer. It is possible to display the temperature at any given point on the image. This can be an average/max/min of single points (there is 76,800 single individual points in one IR photo) or objects, areas, etc.
Detecting loose or corroded electrical connections The reason thermography is so applicable to the monitoring of electrical systems is that new electrical components begin to deteriorate as soon as they are installed. Whatever the loading on a circuit, vibration, fatigue and age cause the loosening of electrical connections, while environmental conditions can hasten their corroding. Briefly stated, all electrical connections will, over time, follow a path toward failure. If not found and repaired, these failing connections lead to faults. Fortunately, a loose or corroded connection increases resistance at the connection and since increased electrical resistance results in an increase in heat, a thermal image will detect the developing fault before it fails. Detecting and correcting failing connections before a fault occurs averts fires as well as impending shutdowns that can be critical to manufacturing, commercial and institutional operations.
Electrical unbalance and overloads Thermal images are an easy way to identify apparent temperature differences in industrial threephase electrical circuits, compared to their normal operating conditions. By inspecting the thermal gradients of all three phases side-by-side, it is possible to quickly spot performance anomalies on individual legs due to unbalance or overloading
Inspecting electric motors A program to avert costly failures in your facility will benefit from including thermal imaging as a condition-monitoring technique for electric motors. Using a thermal imager, it is possible to capture infrared temperature measurements of a motor’s temperature profile as a two-dimensional image. Thermal images of electric motors reveal their operating conditions as reflected by their surface temperature. Such condition monitoring is important as a way to avert many unexpected motor malfunctions in systems that are critical to manufacturing, commercial and institutional processes
Industrial gearboxes Many industrial machines use gearboxes to alter and/or vary the standard speeds of electric motors. The lifeblood of any gearbox is the oil within it that lubricates the gears. If the oil level in a gearbox gets too low or loses its ability to lubricate, the gearbox will eventually fail, preceded by overheating. That’s where thermal imaging comes in. It can then be arrange have the gearbox checked for:-
• Oil level.
• Oil quality and metal-particle content of the oil.
• Perform acoustical testing.
• Vibration analysis.
