Infrared thermography is commonly used for monitoring asset health. Equipment typically displays a pattern of rising temperature before failure - this could be in a bearing, a motor, transformer or other critical component. Through the use of infrared thermography, trained Allied professionals can proactively identify impending failure points, allowing for repair during scheduled maintenance activities before they cause plant downtime.
An electrical safety program that addresses site-specific hazards is mandated by OSHA and NFPA 70E®. The development and implementation of a compliant program can be a complex task - and as a result often is not addressed.
