Thermal Imaging is the fastest growing non-intrusive predictive maintenance technology on the market today. Thermal Imaging Cameras are now an essential tool for predictive maintenance inspections, and are increasingly being used in industrial environments. Thermal Imaging is the only technology that allows you to immediately ‘see’ what’s wrong.
WHY USE THERMAL IMAGING WHEN IT COMES TO PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE?
By performing predictive maintenance inspections using thermal imaging technology, facilities managers can accurately determine whether a piece of equipment needs to be replaced or not. This is highly beneficial resulting in substantial savings as the continuity of production is guaranteed without unnecessary equipment replacement.
ADVANTAGES OF PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE USING THERMAL IMAGING
The main advantage of Thermal Imaging is that you can locate mechanical and electrical problems quickly and accurately. You will be able to immediately see which component is causing the problem. For example: When inspecting an electrical cabinet with thirty fuses, you do not have to check each individual fuse to ascertain which fuse is going to fail first. By simply viewing the thermal image, the faulty fuses are immediately detectable.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THERMAL IMAGING TRAINING
Receiving thermal imaging training equips you with the knowledge on all variables and technical information, which will enable you to interpret the thermal images and draw the right conclusions when performing predictive maintenance.
