Electrical Surveys Using Infrared Thermography


The basis of Electrical Thermographic inspections is finding exceptional heat in electrical equipment.

   The above photos illustrate excessive heat.  The infrared inspection can reveal a pending major failure or shut down before it occurs.  This saves time  and  money, and prevents lost productivity.  

As part of a thorough Electrical and Power System Audit, New Energy Thermal Diagnostics provides an in-depth  thermal diagnostic test and report of all:

  • Electrical Circuits
  • Switch Gear Motor Control Centers
  • Transformers
  • Breaker Panels
  • Service Disconnects
  • Starters
  • Transfer Switches
  • Bus Runs
  • Chillers and Roof Top HVAC Equipment
  • Motors/Pumps/Bearings
  • VFD’s
  • Lighting / Heating Contactors


Preventative / Predictive maintenance  is the most effective loss prevention program  for commercial  and industrial properties.  Our  inspection services can Indicate problematic areas in your electrical system to prevent loss of operation, and damage to equipment.  This helps to maintain optimal performance and provides downtime prevention.  In analyzing a circuit, we discover fuses, disconnects, and motor control devices which are exhibiting early signs of thermal breakdown, and which could result in outages and loss of production, and loss of material and product
We provide a professional and comprehensive report which illustrates the issues that are discovered.  We can help you eliminate problematic failures before they occur and recommend solutions to prevent them from re occurring.
A wire even 10 to 18 degrees above normal, deserve further evaluation or in the very least monitoring, Many Electricians believe readings 20 degrees above ambient are a concern.

The above images show an inspection of manufacturing process, under full load, without the need to interfere with production.  Our non-invasive technology allows the opportunity to inspect the system under real world conditions.

Infrared technology provides a visible record of bearing failure, shaft misalignment,  loss of lubrication in moving parts,  and many other issues which are predictive of imminent  failure and shutdown.
Imagine your entire facility shut down due to a simple problem that could have been discovered and prevented with a basic preventative maintenance exam.
Every industrial plant manager knows that predictive maintenance is infinitely preferred to post breakdown repairs

Many insurance companies give discounts for performing regular infrared inspections.

The benefits of infrared technology in industrial and plant environments are enormous.  In fact, the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) recognizes the benefits of infrared surveys to reduce accidents, potentially save lives, and minimize unplanned shutdowns. Found in the publication NFPA70B, the agency recommends that inspections be performed annually, and more frequently for equipment with a failure history and equipment that is critical to operation.
Electrical failure is a major cause of commercial industrial structure fires!  A high percentage of these fires begin within electrical distribution system equipment or other electronic equipment.  Most of these failures are predictable and preventable.
The use of infrared makes complete economic sense, regardless of the size and operation of your facility. Over the years, it has consistently shown unprecedented returns on investment.
With advanced non-invasive technology, our Certified Thermographers can quickly  pinpoint problems that cannot be seen with the naked eye. This includes loose connections, faulty breakers, disconnects, overloaded circuits, imbalanced loads, weak motor windings and bearings, and much more.
The infrared inspection and analysis provides the most cost efficient method to:

  • Maintain the integrity of your facility’s electrical system
  • Reduces electrical fire hazards
  • Detect faulty connections/overloaded circuits
  • Provide a snap shot in time of the condition of your mechanical systems.

The “bottom line” is, preventative / predictive maintenance programs SAVE TIME and MONEY!! We help prevent pre-mature equipment failure, emergency overtime , loss of product, and costly downtime.
