Infrared Thermographic Inspections in Rochester NY

Don’t let your business go unprotected. An infrared inspection report will document the health of your commercial or industrial electrical system, finding errors and problems that are cause for concern before they become larger problems.

Each report is easy to understand and highlights the importance and likely cause of each issue, as well as the urgency of the repair work. Every inspection is performed without disruption to normal operations, allowing you to be proactive about your electrical systems without the expense of lowered production.

The Infrared Inspection Process

During inspection, our team will scan the entire length of the electrical system, noting all components and their status down for reporting based on the thermal imaging.

Once our technicians have canvassed the entire length of the electrical system, we detail a full report for review with you and your team. Each area of concern will be graded for its inspection status, and a short explanation provided to help you understand the component. We will also detail any areas of concern that may require repair before the system passes inspection.

Items Inspected

These inspections cover a wide range of items to ensure the safety of your employees and infrastructure.

When looking for problems that are often hidden, it’s important to be thorough in inspection, wherever it might be.

This includes areas like motor control centers, bus connections, or air compression and temperature controls.

Other areas often inspected include power transformers and circuit breaker panels, which are often inspected externally, but rarely through infrared to detect hidden problems underneath the paneling.

Issues Resolved

There are many issues that infrared electrical inspections Rochester NY businesses can resolve through our services. We also check for many common problems, such as loose connections, contact wear, and phase imbalances.

The misalignment of drive couplings or clogged fins and bad ground loop current flow can all be issues that are easily resolved on inspection, but cause significant damage to the electrical system if left unattended.

Infrared Electrical Inspection FAQ

What Is an Infrared Electrical Inspection?

In many commercial and industrial settings, it’s impossible to perform a full electrical inspection without halting operation and often checking on key connections and controllers that may be hidden behind walls or secured panels.

To get around this issue, our electricians perform infrared electrical inspections, scanning the electrical system using infrared scanners. This allows our technicians to check on the safety of each component without disrupting any part of normal operation or accruing additional costs to any necessary repair work.

Our experienced team at Douglas Electric is fully certified thermographers, allowing us to pull together a complete and detailed report of every aspect of your electrical system, preventing bad components from putting your building or employees at risk.

How Often Should Infrared Electrical Testing Be Done?
