Here are some frequently asked questions regarding infrared scanning.

Q:Can an infrared inspection be performed while production is running?
A: All the thermographic inspections are conducted while systems are running under load; therefore, no downtime is necessary to conduct the survey.
Q:How accurate is an infrared electrical inspection?
A: A thermographic survey provides positive identification of problem locations, thus maintenance can be performed on facts rather than guesswork.
Q:What do we use when we inspect your electrical equipment?
A:Our newest thermographic imager is the Mikron 7200.

Q:What are the costs of infrared electrical inspections?
A: All inspections are based on a daily rate. Depending on the location, a minimum of travel expenses may be included in the price. The cost of unexpected downtime and the associated costs can be significantly reduced by scheduling periodic surveys.
Q:How safe are infrared electrical inspections?
A:Thermographic surveys are non-contact and nondestructive, thus representing a safe and reliable method to survey high-voltage equipment.
