Prism’s certified thermographers are equipped with very sensitive thermography cameras, which can be employed to locate any impediments in your facilities from loose electrical connections to mechanical failures waiting to happen, pipe water flow issues, steam issues, down to insulation disasters or intrusion of moisture.
Our infrared cameras give us the ability to survey and analyze infrared data from high voltage hazardous targets from a safe distance, for electrical and mechanical deficiencies.
Infrared thermography is a non-invasive, non-destructive inspection tool that uses temperature sensing scanners. These infrared devices gather temperature signatures that lie beyond the range of visible light. Infrared thermography/scanning helps us to detect areas of abnormal temperature in electrical systems or mechanical components in real time.
Prism can also pull the data together and generate a report for our customers so they can understand the problems we have discovered. As a value add, Prism can archive this data for comparison over time as part of a preventative maintenance program.
With IR scanning we can help increase the reliability of customers' facilities and equipment by being ahead of the curve and finding problems before they occur, and this can help to reduce the cost of maintenance by locating problems before it leads to a critical failure or shutdown. IR thermography identifies thermal patterns that may indicate water leakage/blockage, excessively hot electrical connections, or insulation abnormalities.
Common areas we perform IR scanning on electrical systems are electrical substations, transformers, switchgear, disconnects, lighting and receptacle panels, bus ducts, and other key electrical components that our customers require.
Infrared thermography can be implemented in a beneficial way by inserting it into an annual preventative maintenance program to build a baseline for electrical or mechanical systems to watch systems progress in the future.
