This webinar showcases a thermographer utilizing infrared thermography in different types of building inspections. Many inspections may only include checking for missing insulation or possible moisture intrusion. With the help of a qualified Electrician we’ll include electrical utilities and how to pin-point the exact location of an air leak.

In some IR programs control panels are overlooked as a candidate for inspection. The fact that there are smaller components and often low power devices installed within them is part of the reason. This webinar will discuss the reality of heat related failure modes that can occur in the types of components typically installed in control panels, and the potentially severe impact of functional failure of control panel components.

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.

You’ve located a problem with infrared…but how critical is it? This webcast addresses one of the most common questions (and most difficult to answer) that thermographers have…how to prioritize their findings. Should I just use a temperature-based system where the warmer something is, the higher its repair priority? While an important consideration in reality temperature is only a small part of the entire prioritization equation. Attendees of this webinar will learn that there are a number of other factors to consider when diagnosing the severity of a problem and how to better characterize their findings.

IR Thermography, when applied to mechanical systems, can either be a frontline technology or used for validation and correlation of the findings of other technologies. Whichever is the case, there are ample opportunities to use thermography to improve asset reliability. Important reliability metrics such as Meantime Between Failures (MTBF) and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) among others can be dramatically impacted by including critical mechanical assets in an IR Inspection program. Our webinar will discuss the types of equipment that can be effectively inspected with thermography and the failure modes that can be detected in them.

Electrical substation inspections have been the domain of thermographers since the emergence of the technology. There are a number of failure modes in substation equipment that can be discovered thermally. However, there are challenges to substation inspections that need to be understood for maximum effectiveness. Our webinar will take a look at the various types of equipment in substations, the failure modes they present, and how to choose the right conditions to make your inspection deliver the desired results.

We will be discussing the difference between what we can “see” and what we can “measure” when using infrared thermography. Why is there a difference? Why can’t we measure what we can see? What information do the manufactures provide to us and how do we use that information?

It might come as a surprise to some, but there is more to the establishment of an IR inspection program than sourcing an imager and attending a training course. In a facility where IR inspections have never been performed or have been performed sporadically, there will be numerous defects in equipment discovered, and if not managed correctly the resultant repair requirements could overwhelm the maintenance group. Workflow management, planning and scheduling and re-inspection protocols are all part of the foundation for a successful program. Our webinar will discuss how to approach these tasks so that the inspection discoveries are meaningful and result in return on the inspection investment.
