Upcoming Webinars, Think Thermally!

 

Electrical Inspections Using Infrared

Date: Monday, November 24, 2014 at 2 p.m. (EST)                                                                                 

Instructor: Matt Clarke

Cost: Free

The majority of infrared cameras purchased today are used for inspecting electrical systems. While the technology is considered one of the primary test methods for electrical equipment there are limitations with infrared which, if not understood correctly, can be simply misleading or even downright dangerous. This presentation details how to successfully inspect electrical systems, safely and effectively, including conditions needed, typical patterns detected and an understanding of how to prioritize findings.


New Installation Commissioning Using EMT

Date: Tuesday, November 25, 2014 at 10 a.m. (EST)                                                                                 

Instructor: Don Donofrio

Cost: Free

New doesn’t always mean good.  Contracts for parts, materials and labor usually go to the lowest bidder.  This webcast covers the use of electric motor testing (EMT) equipment and their respective test capabilities to assess new construction facilities, new additions to existing facilities, and upgrade or replacement of existing equipment. Find out the reasons you should be validating new equipment installations using EMT equipment.


Inspecting In-Plant Electrical Systems

Date: Tuesday, November 25, 2014 at 12 p.m.  (EST)                                                                                   

Instructor: Matt Clarke

Cost: Free

This presentation provides an overview of how to inspect in-plant electrical systems, safely and effectively, including what equipment to consider scanning, the conditions needed, typical patterns detected and considerations for prioritizing findings. The discussion will cover the finer points of conducting an efficient and effective inspection including tips for both in-plant and consultant thermographers.


Motor Acceptance Testing

Date: Tuesday, November 25, 2014 at 2 p.m. (EST)                                                                            

Instructor: Don Donofrio

Cost: Free

An overview of motor acceptance testing including how to select a vendor and repair facility, why you should conduct a receipt inspections, the different types of acceptance tests, how to properly store your motors and the justification for establishing a motor testing program.


Do Sweat the Small Stuff

Date: Thursday, December 4, 2014 at 11 a.m. (EST)                                                                                   

Instructor: Matt Clarke

Cost: Free

The benefits of utilizing infrared thermography as a predictive maintenance (PdM) tool for electrical applications are well known. Substation equipment, service main switchgear and MCC’s are commonly inspected with frequencies as high as monthly in some instances. Yet for every large distribution apparatus scanned with regularity, any number of 208/120 panels, control panels and other “small” devices are overlooked. This webcast will explore the benefit of adding previously uninspected “small” electrical system components to routes that have previously been occupied by switchgear and MCC’s and puts forth the position that the amperage rating of a device or enclosure no longer correlates to criticality.

Past Thermal Solutions Webcast Events

Our most recent  IR thermography conference, a combined three-day Thermal Solutions and Motor Solutions Webinar conference in June. 2011, was a great success. The conference offered participants the unique opportunity to learn and explore in our online conference forum.  A cast of highly-qualified experts in the field of infrared and electric motor testing presented the IR thermography conferences. The presenters, Don Donofrio, Roy Huff,  Matt Schwoegler, Dave Sirmans, Don Thurmond, and Harold Van de Ven each presented during the three-day event. The IR conference was highlighted by an open question and answer session between each panel which allowed attendees to ask questions.
