Infrared Inspections

Considering today’s fast-paced world, it’s imperative that companies know the condition of their facilities' electrical and mechanical equipment. Failure of this equipment can result in significant business interruption or property damage loss.

One of the best tools you can use to help ensure the safe and reliable operation of your facilities' electrical system is infrared (IR) thermography. Using cutting-edge technology, IR thermography enables trained technicians to map out heat signatures that can be indicative of electrical or mechanical issues such as faulty electrical connections, overloaded circuits, bearing failures, or line blockages.

Infrared inspections are recommended by most electrical contractors on an annual basis and may even be recommended or required by your insurance carrier or local jurisdiction.
