Thermal Imaging is able to identify faults that aren’t visible to the naked eye. Thermal Scanning works by utilising a thermal imager to look for temperature differences, these differences help to identify potential areas of concern before they become a problem.  Thermal imaging can be useful for many different applications and find various faults which can include:

  • Electrical Thermal /imaging
    • Faulty components,
    • Loose connections, and
    • Unbalanced loads.
  • Mechanical Thermal Imaging
    • High friction areas,
    • Faulty Components, and
    • Misalignment of shafts.
  • Cold Room Insulation
    • Insulation gaps,
    • Seals around entrances and exits from cold rooms, and
    • Quality check of panel installations.
  • Solar Thermal Inspections
    • Defective Photovoltaic (PV) solar cells,
    • Storm damage assessments, and 
    • Solar hot water systems
  • Drone Thermal Inspections
    • Solar Cells,
    • Large electrical components such as over-head wires, and
    • Other dangerous and areas with poor access.

Benefits of Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging is considered to be a non-destructive testing method, as it can be performed on operational components without damaging them.  The benefits of this are two-fold, first enabling components to be examined during normal operation conditions helps to highlight and show the normal operating temperatures.  Second, thermal imaging does not require a costly shutdown to examine components.  One key requirement of thermal imaging is that the examined equipment must be under normal load during inspection. 

The benefits of thermal imaging vary depending on the area it is utilised within, however share some key common factors:

  • Saving cost due to:
    • Preventing unexpected shutdowns and loss of productivity,
    • Planning maintenance, and
    • Only replacing faulty components.
  • Increasing safety:
    • Preventing fires,
    • Breakdown of components.
  • Data collection through annual inspections:
    • Assessing trends,
    • Cost projections.
  • Quality Assurance for manufacturing and installation of equipment.

Why would you obtain Thermal scanning?  There are a variety of reasons that one may obtain thermal scanning these can include:

  • Insurance
    • To obtain business or landlord insurance as required by insurer,
    • To potentially reduce premiums for insurance policies.
  • Quality Assurance
    • Such as a pre-purchase due diligence check of commercial sites,
    • Ensuring quality of installation job such as electrical or cold room.
  • Cost minimisation
    • Reduce cost of electrical or mechanical faults by replacing parts before they fail
    • Reduce risk of costly fires or failures.
