RSA Electrical undertake electrical inspections on Residential, Commercial and Industrial Installations.
One method of inspection is doing an Infra Red Thermal Survey and a subsequent Report detailing any issues.
Thermal imagers detect anomalies and weak spots in industrial maintenance and production monitoring quickly and reliably.
Materials and components are tested completely damage-free. Problem zones are identified before a malfunction or a fire risk occurs. Even the smallest temperature differences can be identified with the high temperature resolution of the imager.
Thermal imagers for industrial thermography:
Prevent damage and save money Stand out thanks to with high resolution images Ensure fast and comprehensive analysis Have an intuitive menu structure Guarantee a large image section thanks to the 32° lens
Regular checks in electrical maintenance
Thermal imagers allow an evaluation of the heat status of low, medium and high voltage systems. Thermal images lead to early recognition of defective components, so that the required targeted preventive steps can be taken. This minimizes the dangerous risk of fire and avoids costly production downtimes.
Support in preventive mechanical maintenance
A reliable early recognition of threatening damage to process relevant system components is necessary in order to guarantee the security and reliability of the machines. A high level of heat emissions, especially from mechanical components, may indicate an elevated level of stress. This is caused, for example, by friction due to faulty adjustment, component tolerances or a lack of lubricant.
With their high temperature resolution, Thermal imagers provide an exact diagnosis. Critical heating conditions can be directly detected with the alarm or isotherm function, and countermeasures can be introduced.
Fast and easy monitoring of filling levels
Level control in sealed fluid tanks has proved to be a useful method for avoiding machine damage and therefore production losses. If, for example, the fluid in coolant tanks falls to a dangerously low level, machines are no longer cooled correctly. They run hot and may fail. Often, an automatic level control regulates the level of the refrigerant and issues an alarm when the filling level is too low. However, the automatic control can also fail. In this case, a regular look through a thermal imager will also help.
Safe high temperature measurement
In applications with high scene temperatures the thermal imagers are adaptable to the requirements.
With the high temperature option, the measuring range can be flexibly extended to up to 1200 °C. The high-contrast representation in the display takes place using the high-temperature colour palette Iron HT or the special histogram compensation.
More reliability in quality assurance and production monitoring
The thermal imagers ensure precise situation analysis, thus supporting process monitoring and product quality assurance. In addition to foreign bodies in production processes, anomalies in the heat distribution of components are also recognized at a glance, quickly and without contact.
Only high-quality thermal imagers with the finest geometrical resolution are up to this task. For optimization purposes, the analysis of the warming and cooling behaviour over time time can be useful, and can be carried out using the video measurement with Testo thermal imagers. Monitoring and checking solar energy systems
Safety and performance monitoring.
Solar energy systems reach top performance in full sunshine. Large and small photovoltaic systems can be monitored without contact, from a distance, and especially efficiently using thermal imagers. Malfunctions are identified, the smooth running of all components guaranteed, and thus the highest level of economic viability achieved. Thanks to the possibility of entering the important measurment parameter, sun irradiation intensity, additional security is gained: the value entered is stored together with the thermal image and is available later for image analysis purposes.
Analysis of energy distribution systems
Because of the far-reaching consequences, downtimes in energy distribution systems should be avoided at all costs. In particular, defective connections in high-tension masts can be critical here. These transfer points, which can sometimes be a long way away, can only be clearly recognized with a sufficiently large detector or telephoto lens. Because this is the only way to obtain the detail needed to evaluate the thermal image without error.
Inspection management in large production systems
The regular inspection of machines and switchboxes in large production systems is time-consuming, but indispensable. During such inspection tours, similar measurement objects often have to be monitored, resulting in many thermal images of the same type. Previously, in order to be able to allocate the measurements clearly to the different measurement sites, complex lists needed to be kept, or a voice comment added to each individual thermal image.
