When your business depends on electrical and mechanical systems to function, then you also rely heavily on your maintenance staff to keep those critical pieces of equipment operating properly. When something breaks down it is not just an inconvenience, it is lost time and lost money. But investing in electrical infrared inspection equipment can be a great help in eliminating those work stoppage issues.
There is only so much that a maintenance technician can see from the outside of a piece of equipment. But by using infrared inspection your techs can have a full view of the inner workings of your equipment. This process is a proven, non-destructive method of testing for the detection of wear and tear on electrical and mechanical systems. This allows techs to schedule preventative maintenance or replacement of worn parts before a failure occurs. Not only will this help to increase productivity but it can also help to eliminate the risk of safety issues from a breakdown or failure of the equipment.
An added benefit to this method of testing is that it can be performed during regular hours of operation while the equipment is functioning. There is no need for a work stoppage or scheduled maintenance window. These tests will also save time because the maintenance staff will not need to trouble shoot issues when a unit malfunctions. They will notate the worn parts and replace them before the failure ever occurs. Eliminating failures will increase the safety for your staff and also reduce the risk of a fire as a result of an electrical issue. This will save you money in loss time reductions as well as on your insurance premiums. Having a non-invasive method of testing equipment will not only save you time and money but it will also increase your production rates and the reliability of your equipment.
