THERMOGRAPHY

What is Thermography?

Thermographic Electrical Inspections are formed by comparison of temperatures when measured against other temperatures observed in surrounding or similar components. These variations in temperature often reveal some sort of abnormal operation. Temperature abnormalities are often caused by defective or failing components. Concealed equipment problems exist in almost every significant building. Unfortunately, very few are discovered and corrected through conventional maintenance activity. Most go undetected until there is an operating failure. Usually the failure does extensive damage and causes some interruption of operation. Fires and personal injury are less frequent but they can happen. Electrical Thermographic Inspections can catch potential problems before they are ever realized. If done periodically, these predictive thermal inspections can save maintenance cost and prevent unproductive downtime.

"An Innovative Approach to Preventive Maintenance"

The images in this page were taken by our own Thermography crew. We have found temperature abnormalities in relatively new and well maintained facilities. Our equipment makes a copy of the images associated with temperature abnormalities.

How to Determine if You Need a Thermographic Inspection

Could you ever lose production time due to an electrical malfunction? If you could predict the health of your equipment and prevent downtime, would you? If you answer yes to these questions then you have determined that you can benefit from a Thermographic Inspection. While no one can predict exactly when an abnormal condition will cause equipment failure THERMOGRAPHY allows corrective action to be taken in advance.

What Else Should I Know?

A Thermographic Inspection is non-contact and is safe to perform on energized electrical systems.

Thermography is best done when your business is operating normally. Cooper Electric has the training and experience to perform your Thermographic Inspection without disrupting your business. Cooper Electric has been a Cincinnati Thermography Electricians since 1997, when Greg Hyland our president, saw a need to provide preventive maintenance for our clients, and an opportunity to grow our business for the benefit our customer.

Why Get an Inspection?

Most problems go undetected until there is an operating failure. Usually the failure does extensive damage and causes some interruption of operation schedules. Thermographic Inspections can catch potential problems before they are ever realized. If done periodically, these predictive thermal inspections can save maintenance cost and prevent unexpected downtime.

What Electrical Distribution Equipment should have Thermographic Inspections

  • Utility substations, transformers and feed poles.
  • Power Distribution SystemMain switchboards and disconnects
  • Service Disconnects for motors Machine Control Panels

When can Inspections be performed?

THERMOGRAPHY, is preventive maintenance conducted while your equipment is in operation. This means that you can be running your equipment and machines on a normal schedule without delays. Any abnormalities that are found during the Thermographic Inspection, can be dealt with in a timely manner, which ultimately saves you on expenses that would have been incurred if the component had actually failed.

What type of equipment is used?

Cooper Electric owns a High Definition Thermographic Camera, the capabilities of which are the best in the market place. The pin point Accuracy of temperature readings due to the amazing resolution of the lens, is one of the many features Cooper Electric's High Definition Camera provides.

Who performs the inspection?

Cooper Electric's Certified Level 2, Thermographic Techtrician inspects your operation with thermographic cameras and instruments to detect variations in temperature, if abnormalities exist. Cooper's Thermography Techtrician is then able to take the proper and corrective action to remedy the situation, before it worsens and causes extensive damage. We then provide you with a detailed report of our inspection, with an explanation of what we have found.
