Infrared testing is sometimes referred to as our fire prevention division. It has also become a developmental tool in our electrical construction division.
Over the past 35 years, we've seen how electrical problems can cause serious situations such as something as simple as a loose connection or undersized wiring. In many situations, there is no preventive maintenance program.
Infrared thermography testing is the most cost-effective element of any electrical maintenance program. The understanding of infrared imaging allows us to see a mechanical breakdown before it becomes a major hazard.
In most cases, the breakdown of equipment, electrical connections, motors, receptacles, and almost every item that is connected to electricity has the ability to malfunction. In our work, we've experienced electrical items that have been connected for many years without any problems while nobody realized that there was a slow degradation occurring. Infrared testing and thermal imaging give us the ability to see heat buildup, and these techniques allow us to inspect deeper to identify issues.
Additionally, thermographic imaging will allow us to schedule a safety shutdown, and our experiences as licensed electricians and certified thermal imaging technicians give us the ability to make repairs within hours of problem identification.
Commercial Thermal Imaging
Electrical problems in industrial and commercial buildings have become easier to identify over the years due to thermographic cameras. Wiring issues that used to be difficult to detect can now be identified without ever opening a wall, making our infrared testing in Woburn, MA, extremely useful for clients that are moving their business into a new location. We can also take thermal images of electrical equipment, such as circuit breaker boxes, generators, transfer switches, and other electrical equipment. We’ll be able to identify degradation and, in many cases, perform the repairs necessary. Contact our electrical contractors in Woburn, MA, whether you’re concerned about aluminum wiring or looking for somebody to install a new generator.
Electrical Fire Prevention
Stop potential hazards immediately with our thermal imaging fire prevention package. This package includes thermal imaging of electrical components, fire alarm testing in apartments, and testing of all exit signs and emergency batteries.
Results of fire alarm equipment testing will be submitted to the fire department for certification of a building's equipment. Roof and insulation testing using thermal imaging are also available, and these services come with a detailed report. We offer infrared testing for preventive maintenance in areas that include:
- Main Electrical Rooms
- Data Rooms
- Mechanical Rooms
- Motor Control Centers
- Pharmaceutical Laboratories
