Thermal imaging is a valuable tool in preventive maintenance of electrical, mechanical and structural systems, able to help detect problems, prevent unscheduled downtime, guide needed corrective action and increase safety. High heating, ventilation, air conditioning costs, create a demand for an improved building substance, which in turn drives the application of infrared cameras for building inspections.
FLIR infrared cameras have been proven for more than 30 years in industrial thermal imaging. They can save time and money in a wide range of commercial and industrial maintenance applications.
Infrared thermography is very commonly used to perform predictive maintenance inspections on electrical equipment because excess resistance on a electrical apparatus indicates electrical faults such as loose connections, overloaded or imbalanced circuits, faulty breakers, damaged switches, faulty fuses and a wide range of other unwanted electrical conditions. Before an electrical component burns up, it heats up. Thermography is used to see the excess heat (resistance) so that problems can be found and maintenance personnel can act to correct the problem before the component fails, causing damage to the component, safety hazards and/or production downtime.

Water leakage is the leading cause of roof damage. It ruins insulation, causes corrosion, weakens metal decks and other building structures, encourages mold growth, and can even lead to structural collapse. But thanks to infrared surveys, there’s now an fast, effective way to spot water accumulation and damage on any roof-even when that damage is out of sight. FLIR infrared cameras instantly show you what’s wet and what’s dry. You can immediately locate the ultimate source without disassembling the premises or disrupting the inhabitants.
