The benefits of thermography are obvious:

  • Identify problems before they happen
  • Allow planned system maintenance to be prioritized and budgeted for
  • The ability to quantify the degree of failure
  • Non-disruptive as there is no need to shut down services
  • Avoid unnecessary, potentially dangerous and disruptive downtime or circuit interruption

Krauth will peform the thermographic survey while all equipment or services are ‘under load’ or being used without the need to shut down services and with minimal disruption. The images are stored and downloaded for analysis.

Comparing the temperature of components against ambient temperature gives an indication of fault severity. Thermography is a non-contact and non-destructive type of testing, and is an invaluable resource for predictive maintenance. Virtually no other method will detect the heat rise associated with such faults. This allows remedial work to be prioritized, and a response by the maintenance team can be scheduled. As there is no surface contact, surveys can and should be carried out under normal working conditions, with minimal or no interruption or disruption of plant operations.

After analysis we provide you with a report on equipment condition and recommendations for action as needed.

Call us for a plant visit and survey to help implement a program designed for your specific equipment.
