AIT's thermal imaging surveys can save you and your company, time, money, and man power. AIT uses thermal imaging techniques to identify abnormalities and other potential problems in equipment before failure occurs. These highly versatile infrared surveys are both predictive and preventive maintenance procedures. Thermal imaging is non intrusive - it does not require the shutdown of equipment and it can be performed with your equipment in an as-is condition operating with normal loads.
Many equipment and component failures are induced by heat. The key to recognizing these kinds of problems is to locate and identify thermal changes and abnormal heat signatures. In the past, this was accomplished with thermocouples. This technique proved costly because it did not provide full coverage. Infrared thermal imaging provides a complete thermal picture where temperatures may be measured within the frame.
Thermal imaging surveys can prevent the unnecessary shutdown or failure of your equipment. These surveys can assist you to plan preventive and predictive maintenance for your equipment.
