Thermography can be used as part of a predictive maintenance programme enabling problems to be identified and repaired before they either; breakdown, causing business interruptions or a loss of production, or become serious enough to represent a safety risk, such as overheating electrical equipment, which could result in a fire.
During this era of climate change and increasing energy bills, reducing energy consumption makes perfect sense; less energy used means less money spent, corporate image can be enhanced by lowering emissions and carbon footprints and in the end this helps everyone in the fight against climate change.
Using energy more efficiently is the easiest way to do this.
This introduction to thermographic surveys explains how this technology can be used to save money, improve reliability of equipment and identify health and safety hazards.
Thermography can be used in almost any organisation as a means of highlighting areas where heat losses and wastage can be minimized resulting in lower operating costs and carbon emissions. Thermographic Surveys are not just suitable for identifying problems with equipment which gets hot. Every object with a temperature above absolute zero (-273°C) emits infra red radiation meaning thermal imaging can be suitable for identifying issues with virtually any system. Furnaces, central heating systems and refrigeration systems all emit infra red radiation and potentially savings and / or problems can be quickly and easily identified.
