Infrared Thermography plays an important part in a Machinery Health Management program, as emerging faults are frequently accompanied by excessive heat or heat loss.
Emerson’s thermal imagers integrate route-based thermographic data collection with vibration analysis, oil analysis, and other technologies for a complete evaluation of machinery health.
Typical faults identified using thermographic imaging include:
- Mechanical Defects – Verify machinery wear causing friction-related heat.
- Electrical Systems – Accurately diagnose anomalies in electrical systems.
- Insulation Damage – Detect insulation damage in process applications as well as buildings and facilities.
