Efficiency and accuracy of plant maintenance
Avoid equipment failures through predictive maintenance
Valuable help for plant maintenance
There are many types of equipment in manufacturing plants, including mechanical and electrical installations, piping, refractory materials and others. Common faults include overheating or leakage after prolonged operation. A thermal imaging camera can quickly show potential flaws that are difficult to see with the naked eye. By pinpointing the exact location of the defect, it helps to save costs and ensure safe operation of the plant.
Error detection in case of overheating of bearings
Overheating of electric motors or water pumps can cause sudden breakdowns of production equipment. However, some high-speed bearings are difficult to inspect due to their mounting position or for safety reasons. By using non-contact thermal imaging cameras, overall temperature data and the locations of overheating points can be accurately displayed, allowing temperature changes to be quickly detected and potential failures to be avoided through preventive maintenance. This helps to ensure continuous production.
Engine failure detection
Motor faults such as brush oxidation and overload change the temperature behavior and can be quickly detected with a thermal imaging camera. Precise fault localization allows potential failures to be detected early and corrected by maintenance work. This reliably prevents production downtimes or even accidents.
Fault detection of the fan in control cabinets
The cooling fan is a small but important component in the overall system of control cabinets to ensure the safe functioning of the electrical components. By using a thermal imaging camera, the fans can be checked easily and regularly, and defective units can be quickly identified and replaced.
Fault detection for cooling units (AC)
Cooling units are used, among other things, to cool production or to cool power transformers to ensure continuous production. Thermal imaging cameras offer a good method of recording the temperature behavior within systems and making unusual temperature rises detectable. Faults in the system are thus detected at an early stage and can be rectified before the system fails completely.
