Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging from Electrical Test Midlands
Thermal Imaging

By detecting anomalies often invisible to the naked eye, thermography allows corrective action to be taken before costly system failures occur. Thermal Imaging or Thermography is the process of using a special camera designed to look only for heat by way of infra red (IR) energy waves. Potential problems can often be found due to excess heat being released by an electrical system, even those which would normally produce some heat when performing at their optimum level.

If undetected these problems can lead to failure and can result in expensive production loss or downtime and, in the most extreme case, can lead to fire. A regular programme from electrical test midlands of thermal imaging as part of routine maintenance can highlight potential problems long before any event. As a result any required repairs can be planned for in terms of both time and budget. In short, it is an invaluable resource for predictive maintenance. Thermography has applications in many different areas which are listed below.

Thermography can detect the following in electrical systems:

Loose connections
Overloads
Phase imbalances
Corrosion
High resistance in fuses and switchgear
Thermography can detect the following in mechanical systems:

Motor overload
Worn Bearings
Boiler seal leakage
Insulation breakdown
Hydraulic, steam and hot water systems
Tank levels and insulation
Valves
Turbines
Thermography can detect the following in buildings:

Continuity of insulation
Flat roof leakage
Heating, ventilation and air conditioning
Cold storage thermal gain
Seals

Bags of love

Electrical Test Midlands are currently collecting for personal items for HOMELESS LADIES. Let’s face it, many people are only a few ‘pay days’ away from being homeless too!

Being homeless is bad enough, let alone at certain times of the month for ladies!

With this in mind, Electrical test midlands are collecting donations on behalf of a voluntary organisation who are collecting ‘BAGS OF LOVE’.

What’s a BAG OF LOVE?

Well, it’s basically a handbag you don’t use any more filled with sanitary, personnel items for a homeless lady.

We have made 2 today, containing the following items:-
Toothpaste, toothbrush, sanitary items, deodorant, wipes, shampoo, conditioner and body wash.
(See pic.)

The contents of each bag has cost me so little but will mean SO MUCH to the receiver.
If you can donate any of the above items and/or have a handbag you’re happy to donate, please consider making your own ‘BAG OF LOVE’ for a homeless lady.

We are happy to receive items and pass them on but sadly can’t collect things from people.

If you can donate, just let us know and We can discuss a ‘drop off point’.
Thanks in advance xx
