What is Mechanical Inspection for Thermography?
Maximizing the Potential of Mechanical Inspection
Thermography Advantages :
✔ Non-destructive and non-contact
✔ Reduced downtime
✔ Prevent costly and catastrophic system failure
✔ Plan your repair and maintenance effectively with priorities
✔ Real-time inspections
✔ Fast and Quality assessment reports
When it comes to inspecting mechanical equipment with infrared, certain conditions are needed. We have ITC certified Thermographers and Engineers. Proper training is essential to successfully operate these systems.
The Benefits of Thermography:
The first way thermography reduces dose exposure is by significantly reducing the time a worker needs to be in the adverse area to diagnose the situation. Thermal cameras allow the workers to take multiple images of the component in question quickly and to analyze the images later while in a safer environment.
The second way that thermography reduces dose exposure is by allowing workers to be further away from equipment they are analyzing. The further they are from radioactive equipment, the smaller the dose rate will be. Without thermography a worker may have to get very close to an object to look for visual hints of heat damage or to apply temperature monitoring equipment.
Thermography is often used to find faults in electrical systems without having to stop power to the system itself. This can be extremely beneficial for companies without the capacity to shut down systems for days at a time while troubleshooting issues.
