What Is Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging is the process of using specific equipment to test and check potential anomalies which are often invisible to the naked eye. This therefore allows us to take corrective action to best limit any incidents or accidents.

There are a number of elements that it can help to detect. These include:-

  • Loose Connections
  • Overloads
  • Corrosion
  • Phase Imbalances
  • High resistance in fuses

What Do We Use

When it comes to conducting thermal imaging, the team at IPF Electrical use a thermal imaging device. This device is able to translate thermal energy into visible light. This is how we are able to identify any overheating that may be occurring within the devices we are testing or fixing. It has been a highly valuable tool for our customers in order to prevent incidents from occurring.

What Can It Prevent

By understanding what cannot be seen by the naked eye it is easier to predict and understand any repairs that may be required, or any preventative actions that may need to take place. Thermal imaging can also detect overheating which has been closely linked with fires and other incidents. The team at IPF Electrical are trained to use this equipment to limit breakdowns or costly repairs.
