Thermography is one of the most valuable Methods in preventive maintenance. In addition to reducing the chance of damage to people and property, it can be very profitable since it prevents shutdowns. We specialize in thermography. Our thermography personnel are certified by DNV, which sets high standards of competence and knowledge.
How does thermography work?
Thermography is performed preferably as part of the inspection, and any time while the unit is running normally. The operation will thus not be affected by the work.
The method involves taking images of electrical systems with thermal imager, as one can read the temperatures of different objects. This way we can detect if there is abnormally high temperatures, also inside objects that you do not see with the naked eye.
Heat links appear very clearly on a thermal image, and often this is due to poor connection points, poorly executed installation, overload or uneven load. Such danger signals can therefore be detected at an early stage, and one can make necessary improvements before damage occurs. The job is performed while the plant is in operation, thus avoiding costly delays. Many owners therefore see the value of a thermography report as a useful complement to other ships and Control-/inspectionpaper.
