Heat is generated when mechanical systems operate. Infrared is used to locate areas of overheating, in all types of mechanical equipment caused by excess friction in moving parts, motors, bearings, improper alignment of coupled equipment, over/under lubrication, over/under tension of belted systems, defective equipment, and overheating due to blocked air passages in motor housings.
Benefits of using Infrared:
– Increase equipment reliability and life
– Increase productivity and efficiency while saving energy
– Minimize downtime by planning the required manpower and equipment before shutdown.
