infrared thermographyInfrared thermography (IRT) is a testing process that uses non-contact measuring devices to measure the temperature fluctuations within a component. As heat flows through the component it emits thermal radiation which then can be analyzed using infrared cameras. This allows testers to locate defects in the part before it is put into use, thereby reducing the potential for costly equipment failures and downtime.

Marshall Industrial Technologies uses state-of-the-art infrared thermography technology to conduct infrared electrical inspections on components to identify issues before they can cause problems. The process is both safe and economical and is highly recommended by both the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and the American Society of Non-Destructive Testing as an ideal means of testing the safety and effectiveness of components.

Infrared Thermography

Importance of Infrared Thermography Inspection

Infrared thermography inspection uses directed heat to find weaknesses and failures in components. Since unexpected failures can result in dangerous and costly system failures, it is critical to locate and address component defects early in the manufacturing process. For this reason, infrared electrical inspection is incorporated into the manufacturing process for a variety of products, including:

  • Electrical Control Systems
  • Electrical Disconnect Switches
  • Lighting Panels
  • Pole Connections
  • Electrical Outlets and Receptacles
  • Switches and Transformers
  • Utility Substations
  • Mechanical Applications
  • Tank Repair

Advantages of Infrared Thermography

Infrared thermography offers several advantages, including:

  • Non-contact testing for enhanced safety
  • Two-dimensional thermal imaging for easy visual comparison
  • Real-time, high-speed scanning
  • Safe and effective testing method
  • Non-invasive and non-destructive

Infrared electrical inspection offers a variety of benefits over more traditional testing methods, including: 

  • Reduced repairs and downtime
  • Increased equipment service life
  • Fewer service interruptions
  • Reduced safety risks
  • Lower repair and maintenance costs
  • Increased productivity
  • Prevented system failures
  • Reduced losses
  • Lower insurance costs

Outside the Box Uses in the Industrial Space

Marshall was one of the early pioneers to use infrared thermography to assist in the diagnosis of leaks in jacketed tanks.  With no direct access to the inner tank wall, the jacket of the tank is scanned and the temperature information used to greatly narrow down the region of the leak. The resultant repair requires a much smaller breach in the outer jacket and results in a better, more economic repair.
