Unfortunately, power systems are vulnerable to a number of potential problems that can lead to major disruptions. One of the most serious problems that can affect power systems is overheating. RESA Power proudly provides infrared scanning and IR inspections to help you detect when your equipment is getting dangerously hot.
As the need for electrical power grows, so does the need for keeping electrical power systems running efficiently. RESA Power offers infrared inspections to detect when your equipment is in danger and help remedy the issue.
Overheating and high-resistance connections can cause equipment to fail, leading to massive power outages and costly repairs. In extreme cases, it can even lead to fires.
So why do power systems overheat? There are several reasons, among them atmospheric conditions, faulty equipment, and wrong design that leads to the lack of a proper heat dissipation system. Overheating may be also caused by any accidental fault of the circuit, for example, short-circuit or spark gap.
Among the most common causes of power system issues, you may also find a lack of maintenance, poor connections, unbalanced loads, and a large demand on the system. Due to the accumulation of heat, the system reaches an equilibrium of heat accumulation versus dissipation at a much higher temperature than expected.
Infrared testing is essential as a preventative maintenance tool when it comes to helping companies detect infrared anomalies in their power systems. Infrared light is invisible to the human eye, but it can be detected by special infrared cameras. These cameras create images of heat, allowing technicians to locate areas of high heat within power systems. High levels of heat can indicate overloaded circuits or failing equipment, both of which can pose a serious risk of fire or electrical shock.
By regularly performing infrared inspections, companies can take steps to prevent these hazards before they cause problems. In addition, infrared inspections can also be used to identify potential sources of fire, electrical hazards, code violation, & equipment in need of electrical maintenance. By taking proactive measures to address these hazards, infrared inspections can help keep businesses and homes safe from fire dangers.
Infrared Scanning and Infrared Inspections
As our electrical needs grow, so does the strain on our power systems. And when demand exceeds the capacity of a power system, it can lead to problems. That’s where infrared scanning comes in.
A big advantage of infrared inspections is that this service does not require de-energization or switching in most cases. Your equipment may work without any interruptions to keep your business running.
Infrared scanning is a powerful tool that can be used to detect potential problems with power systems before they cause major disruptions. By using infrared cameras to scan equipment, RESA Power Service’s NETA-certified technicians can see areas that are starting to overheat. This allows us to take corrective action before the problem gets out of hand.
Infrared inspections are a vital part of maintaining a safe and reliable electrical power system. RESA Power uses this technology to identify potential problems before they cause major disruptions. Keeping your power systems in safe and reliable condition – that’s the Power of Us.
