Thermography For Facilities Management

Thermography For Facilities Management
At APT Thermography we also undertake infrared thermal imaging of machinery and electrical panels, this helps to detect faults before they become major production issues. This is extremely useful within the facilities management Industry.

Our thermal imaging cameras produce accurate real time high resolution images, enabling engineers to detect problems that otherwise might go unnoticed. This gives you a chance to undertake remedial works prior to costly system failures or production stoppages occur. Using infrared thermography is effective across all industry sectors helping to reduce maintain costs and even identify process improvements.

Electrical Inspections
Infrared Thermography is ideal for carrying out Electrical Safety Inspections, be it to find that loose connection or a potentially overloaded component in your main electrical panel.

We all understand the consequences of electrical system failure and the associated costs of having no power. Whilst an electrical fault may in itself only cost a small amount to repair, if left to fail the expenditure for that same fault may run into thousands of pounds in lost production, downtime, wages, insurance excesses, injury claims etc.

A infrared thermography survey from APT Thermography is a fast and cost-effective way to locate faults with no disruption to the running of your business. Ideally the Thermography survey is conducted whilst your equipment is working and under normal operational conditions, any problems will be quickly located allowing you time to schedule maintenance at a time that suits your business.

Electrical systems are the most critical items within office buildings and industrial applications. There are considerable benefits to be gained by protecting these systems and reducing unplanned stoppages.
Insurance statistics reveal that associated with electrical equipment damage, loose connections cause 25% -30% of all failures to switchboards, switches, circuit breakers and cables. This type of fault is easy to detect using Infrared cameras, APT’s trained operatives can now trace, quantify and trend the fault, this then allows the management of the site to plan repairs during planned stoppages instead of the panic reaction involved when sudden failure occurs, yet alone the possible risk of fire which can be catastrophic for personnel and business.

Electrical Thermography is the fastest growing area in predictive engineering and we at APT can respond to your needs in any way you require, by supplying you with a full on-site inspection service as well as ongoing consultancy.

Mechanical Thermography
A thermography survey from APT Thermography on your mechanical installations is a fast and cost-effective way to locate faults on your equipment with no disruption to the running of your business. Ideally the survey is conducted whilst your equipment is working and under normal operational conditions, any problems will be quickly located allowing you time to schedule maintenance at a time that suits your business.

As with electrical inspections Thermography has proved invaluable in a number of industries for mechanical inspections. The principal behind mechanical inspections is that when in operation all mechanical equipment will generate certain thermal patterns, these patterns can change significantly due to friction, lack of lubrication, lack of efficient cooling, etc.

Here at APT thermography we use the latest techniques to allow accurate diagnosis to alleviate maintenance shutdowns, etc.

Typical faults that can be identified using thermography are:

• Misalignment, unbalance
• Machine and component looseness
• Damaged shafts, vanes and blades
• Bearing defects, cracks and spills
• Gear defects
• Improper lubrication

Under floor heating pipe work can often get damaged, Using APT Thermography to undertake a infrared thermography survey ensures you can locate the locations of all the under floor heating pipes to identify load carrying supports as well as accurately identifying damaged areas and/or identifying the efficiency of the heating system can be checked and repaired quickly efficiently. The location of under floor heating pipes can be easily identified in order to position load carrying supports or dig holes. Also the efficiency of the heating system can be checked and any leaks identified.

Infrared Thermal Imaging Surveys

Why Infrared Thermal Imaging Surveys
In summary its main benefits are:

• Quick inspection.
• Results easily shown in pictures.
• Shows location of air leakage.
• Shows thermal insulation defects.
• We use the latest detection equipment with fully trained personnel to achieve reliable results in the most demanding building applications.

We carry out many surveys each year and guarantee to offer a professional, reliable, and helpful and offer competitive pricing. We offer a last minute service at no extra cost, and we also undertake weekend Infrared thermography surveys on both on Saturday and Sunday in order to meet your out of hour’s survey requirements.

We offer a nationwide service offering a single supplier for all of your regional offices and projects.
