Electrical and Mechanical

As electrical current flows through a conductor, heat is generated. Many electrical defects are accompanied by a rise in temperature for up to several weeks prior to failure. Some defects may be represented as cool components.

Types of problems that can be detected:

  • Loose/deteriorated connections
  • Overloads
  • Imbalanced Loads
  • Open Circuits
  • Inductive Heating
  • Harmonics
  • Defective Equipment

As mechanical devices operate, heat is generated. Forces such as friction, misalignment and improper belt tension cause excessive heating.

Types of problems that can be detected:

  • Misalignment of coupled equipment
  • Over/under lubrication of bearings
  • Over/under tension of belted systems
  • Excessive friction
  • Defective Equipment
