Thermal Imaging Survey

A thermal imaging inspection is a non-destructive / non-intrusive maintenance option to provide a pro-active means of electrical switchboards, plant and equipment maintenance.

A thermal imaging inspection service detects heat being generated by electrical plant and equipment through measurements of infrared electromagnetic radiation emitted by the object, which could be deteriorating through an ageing process that may ultimately lead to fire and destruction of such equipment. Providing appropriate action is taken, as recommended with a thermal imaging inspection report and in a timely manner, plant and equipment damage may be avoided.

Lower your business insurance with thermal imaging

Thermal imaging is increasingly used by business to reduce commercial insurance premiums. Not only can thermal imaging lower insurance, business can also prevent breakdown and minimise production downtime.

Thermal imaging survey of switchboards, plant & equipment provides the business with an important tool to establish a low risk environment and effective fire reduction strategies. Insurance companies are progressively including thermal imaging as an essential requirement for commercial premises fire risk assessment prior to formalising a policy . This service may offer a means of managing duty of care risk within industry sectors

Cost saving analysis

There have been numerous examples where thermal imaging inspections have provided genuine savings in that potential plant and equipment failures have been circumvented. In some instances a simple contactor with a $150 worth of value could have cost a business in excess of $15,000 in down time. In another instance, a loose crimpling could have cost a business in excess of $40,000 through lost production. Where safety is an issue, what cost is placed on this aspect of business operations?
